Real Estate

Legal marijuana operations are finding space to grow and store their product by paying premium rents for warehouse space.

PORTLAND, Ore. – Forget stainless steel appliances or master suites. There’s a new selling point in some Portland real estate listings: pot plants.

"I would look and I would think to myself what can I put here? What can we do? It hit me. This could be a medical marijuana facility."

Say good-bye to retail shops with pot leaf posters. Welcome to the gorgeous -- and profitable -- professionally designed legal marijuana retailers.

Real estate broker Marty Higgins disliked the head shop vibe on his trips to local medical marijuana dispensaries, so he created an upscale dispensary, Harvest on Geary Boulevard, that opened in the spring. Last week, he went even more posh, announcing the creation of San Francisco’s first private cannabis club.

Demand for its moisture packs grows along with legal marijuana business.
