This is exactly the kind of thing HDR shines at. It would triple your scanning work, but you'll be able to deal with the problem.
Other than that, in the old days, people used flash to reduce the contrast between interior and exterior (not possible with your warehouse shot without van loads of lighting), easily doable with the 2nd picture. Or....people used discreetly tape semi-opaque translucent plastic (there was a commercial product for this, can't remember the name) over the window to reduce the contrast.
HDR will offer you more control and is simpler/faster to work with than doing it en situ.
