Orion Township Commercial Property Lease

This warehouse building which is 1 million sf (100,000m2) , sits next to General Motors Orion, Michigan facility. The warehouse building developed by Ashley Capital, one of America ’s largest warehouse builders sat empty and unleased for 2 years.

Along came Levi Smith and Mr. Chris Feng of Fuyao Automotive North America, Inc (FANA) and made Ashley a deal they could not refuse. Levi Smith negotiated a contract for a dollar amount that took into consideration numbers that are lucky to the Chinese. The location of Fuyao within the building also reflected Feng Shui.
