ARLINGTON — A big name in the beverage industry has proposed building a new distribution center near the Arlington Municipal Airport.
Swire Coca-Cola aims to develop a 135,000-square-foot center with attached offices, according to a project narrative presented to the city’s planning commission Thursday. The property is 15 acres off 59th Avenue NE, just south of the Arlington Boys & Girls Club.
There would be a large warehouse, a one-story building with office space and a break room, and a shipping and receiving area, according to design documents.
The proposal is under consideration and no final decisions were made at the planning commission workshop last week.
Swire Coca-Cola bottles and distributes beverages to retailers in 13 states, including Washington, Oregon, Idaho and California.
