Centennial Industrial Park
The port’s 108-acre Centennial Industrial Park (CIP) features 17 acres that are now ready-to-build and available for lease. An adjacent 50 acres of land — ideal for light industry or advanced manufacturing — are available for future development. Infrastructure improvements are complete, underground utilities, roads and sidewalks are in place, and a state-of-the-art storm water management system is ready for new tenants.
In 2016, the port will begin construction of a 125,000 sq. ft. (32′ clear height) industrial building. The building is expected to be complete by April 2017 and will be capable of accommodating several tenants or one single tenant. This will be a state of the industry building with dock and grade doors, on-site office space, extra access for tractors and trailer turn around and ample electrical supply in a beautiful location. Pre-leases are now being accepted.
Especially significant is the port’s ability to help prospective tenants find funding sources for project development. One example of a creative approach to funding is the use of the federal New Markets Tax Credit Program. This program was instrumental in attracting Farwest Steel, one of the leading distributors, processors and fabricators of specialty steel products in the Northwest, to the port.
