Liberty Mutual plans expansion

Liberty Mutual Insurance is expanding its Liberty Lake operations.

The Boston-based firm will add more workers to the Meadowwood Three building, which is under construction next to the former Agilent Technologies office building.

Greenstone Corp., which bought the 70-acre Agilent property and renamed it the Meadowwood Technology Campus, is leasing the 64,000-square-foot building to Liberty Mutual.

Liberty Mutual spokesman Glenn Greenberg could not say how many new workers the new building will have.

The company is listing some jobs for the new location on its corporate website.

Liberty Mutual expects to move into the new building in mid-2014.

Berg affiliate buys warehouse

Investment group CDA Loon LLC has purchased the former Caterpillar plant at 6811 E. Mission Ave. in Spokane Valley. The group paid $2.7 million for the 124,000-square-foot building sitting on 7.8 acres.

The buyer is affiliated with Spokane Valley-based Berg Co. It plans to use the warehouse to consolidate its diverse manufacturing operations.

Earl Engle and Darren Stack were the listing agents, and James Black III represented Berg in the deal. All three work with NAI Black.

Corner Booth Media moving

Spokane design and advertising agency Corner Booth Media is moving its downtown office to 114 W. Pacific Ave.

It’s taking about 1,000 square feet in a location previously used as an art gallery. Corner Booth is moving from 122 S. Monroe St. The move is expected to be completed this week.

Formed in 2001, Corner Booth provides a range of video and marketing services, including video, TV production, Web development and content, and advertising. It has five employees, including owner Frank Swoboda.

The company needed more room.
