"South King County, especially the Renton area, is on our industry's radar screen right now."  "We looked at the demographic trends in that area and decided it was time for us to move.  The sale of the Boeing property near the lake and the mall that will replace it will draw people.  The transit hub in downtown Renton provides easy transportation.  All that and the availability of the old McLendon Hardware site made it attractive to move."
