When they ran into difficulties with a local warehousing company for one of their best clients, Greg Gilbert, president of IDI, turned to Todd and Cascade Commercial to find a replacement situation. He had to move quick! Within days Greg and IDI had information on 5 different warehouse options near their HQ and they were out looking at the possibilities within a week, and then had an acceptable LOI agreement on close to 80,000 sf of space in the Rivergate area days later, for a move-in less than 3 months from the when the call went out.
