The film and video industry pumps hundreds of millions of dollars every year into the Oregon economy. From Grimm, Portlandia, and the Leverage TV shows, to major motion pictures, to dozens of commercials and other marketing pieces done by the best creative agencies for firms like Nike, Intel, and Adidas, this industry segment is strong and growing and gaining a worldwide reputation for imagination and cutting edge expertise.
At the hub of this industry is Koerner Camera Systems (KCS) which is the preeminent film and video rental outfit in the Northwest and has grown every year since its birth in 1995. Almost every film and video endeavor in the Northwest flows through this growing company which stocks millions of dollars of the best and newest equipment to make both locally-based and nationwide professionals successful in accomplishing their film and video projects.
Cascade Commercial worked closely with Michael Koerner, the progressive owner, to find an expanded facility in a focused geographical area in the core areas of Portland. It took a while, but KCS found the perfect fit with a larger facility in a great and accessible neighborhood of southeast Portland, which will triple their space and provide expanded equipment and inventory options for the myriad of firms and entrepreneurs in the film and video space in Portland.
“Todd is a trusted real estate advisor and knows more about the Portland market than anyone I have encountered. His knowledge of market dynamics, trends, valuations, Portland neighborhoods, land use and city requirements and the multitude of issues and nuances in accomplishing a successful transaction are unmatched,” says Michael Koerner.
