The state of Washington is putting its former liquor distribution center in Seattle up for sale.

Real estate firm Kidder Mathews has posted a description of the 223,227-square-foot property at 4401 E. Marginal Way S., touting it as well-located, near the Port of Seattle, I-5 and I-90.

Kidder Mathews expects to take offers from now to sometime in January. The goal is to complete the sale by March 15.

There is no asking price, and all offers will remain confidential until the sale is complete.

Shortly before voters approved an initiative to privatize the state’s liquor business in late 2011, the state considered proposals from private companies to take over the operation of the distribution center.

The Office of Financial Management decided proposals would not result in a financial benefit or be in the best interest of the state.
