Cobalt was engaged to help Papé find a suitable site to replace an existing Papé-Kenworth location they had outgrown. Multiple sites had been considered, each with significant topography and land use challenges.
Cobalt led an impressive site selection team of Papé real estate personnel, an architect, consulting engineers and planners to overcome seller, land use, environmental, traffic, accessibility, and in utility infrastructure constraints.
The result- unlocking a highly visible trucking retail and service location near an Interstate 5 off ramp that had long been “undevelopable” by earlier suitors. Overcoming considerable land use and engineering constraints was remarkably rewarding for the Papé and Cobalt teams.
