Things are getting electric in Clayton.
E-bike maker Rad Power Bikes has leased space in York Street Yards, an industrial and retail complex in the neighborhood that is already home to electric car company Rivian.
Rad leased 8,820 square feet in the complex at 3821-3893 Steele St., according to Axio Commercial Real Estate broker John Livaditis, who represented the company in lease negotiations along with colleague Brian Frank.
Rad Power Bikes, which didn’t respond to requests for comment, says it is North America’s largest e-bike maker. The Clayton store will replace a temporary pop-up shop that Rad opened earlier this year at 4180 Wynkoop St. in RiNo.
York Street Yards is a massive warehouse site, originally built in the 1940s as a medical supply depot for the U.S. Army.
Developers Ken Wolf and Ari Stutz, two of the early forces behind RiNo’s transformation in recent years, purchased the property between 2013 and 2018 and began luring some retail tenants to the property. That transition has continued under the ownership of Portland-based ScanlanKemperBard Cos., which bought the property from Wolf and Stutz in early 2020 for $77 million.
Rivian, which produces an electric pick-up truck, operates a service center at York Street Yards. Other tenants include Cohesion Brewing and golf simulator lounge Stick & Feather.
