Spokane developer Jerry Dicker has added the former CompUSA building to his firm’s list of downtown properties.
Dicker, the principal manager of Spokane-based GVD Commercial Properties, is paying roughly $3 million for the vacant 25,000-square-foot building, at 808 N. Ruby. The seller is the Lyons Family Trust, based in California. It’s been the owner since 1997; CompUSA leased it until the company declared bankruptcy in 2007.
Dicker said he has no immediate plans and is looking for a long-term tenant to lease the commercial building.
“We felt it is a good, strategic property for the long haul,” Dicker said.
Marshall Clark, of Clark Pacific Real Estate, brokered the sale of the building.
GVD is a partner or full owner of several downtown buildings, including the Spokane Interplayers theater building, the Bing Crosby Theater, the Red Lion River Inn, the Hotel Ruby and the Burgan’s building and adjoining warehouse.
