The Dunn Lumber headquarters vision for expansion is still under discussion. As a part of this discussion we are engaging customers, neighbors, community groups and city officials as we consider options.
The parcels of the block east of the retail store were acquired over the years to expand Dunn Lumber operations and loading/unloading. As we look forward to the next 100 years, this area will need to expand to better serve customers.
There are two elements to our vision:
- Expand our warehouse and reconfigure the staging area to accommodate deliveries by large trucks. This staging area will need to accommodate these trucks without impeding traffic on public streets or customer parking areas.
- Improve the site so that it better serves not only Dunn’s operations and customers picking up lumber, but also provides better amenities to the community. Improvements could include a building that accommodates a grocery store, restaurant, or other similar uses - promoting the lower Wallingford community and connectivity to the Burke-Gilman Trail.
