WICHITA — Just down from where the new Ferguson Bath, Kitchen and Lighting Gallery will be, the former Big Dog Motorcycles space is now on the market.
Intrust Bank foreclosed on the company at 1520 E. Douglas in April, and founder Sheldon Coleman Jr. dissolved the corporation.
He then started a new company, BDM Performance Products, to supply parts, accessories and gear for more than 25,000 Big Dog motorcycles.
The operation is based in Big Dog’s former service and research and development buildings and the former Johnstone Supply building next to where the company’s headquarters was.
Jeff Walenta and Scott Salome of Grubb & Ellis/Martens Commercial Group have the listing for the other former Big Dog property, which they’ll sell or lease.
The list price is $4,020,000.
The property includes an approximately 80,000-square-foot building, part of which was used for Big Dog’s showroom, and a 20,000-square-foot warehouse.
The properties can be sold separately.
Walenta says the main building has 28-foot ceilings in some places and has a clear span, meaning there are no support posts breaking up the space.
“That’s hard to find,” he says.
The warehouse has 26-foot high ceilings in some areas.
Though Walenta says every property presents its own challenges to sell, he believes in this one’s ability to attract attention.
“This one’s unique,” he says. “Not much like it on the market, so I’m confident.”
