EVERETT — Representatives of a warehousing firm and a gravel company are talking with Port of Everett officials about major facilities on the waterfront.
The warehouse company, whose name was not disclosed, is interested in 300,000 square feet of the Riverside Industrial Park that is being developed by the port along the Snohomish River.
The industrial park, on the site of a former Weyerhaeuser Co. mill, is still being readied for development and is expected to provide some 1.3 million square feet of industrial space.
If an agreement is reached, the warehousing firm would be the anchor tenant of the park and would "define the site," port director John Mohr said Tuesday, adding that means it would likely attract similar businesses.
Mohr said the port is pleased with the company’s interest. "We have not been actively promoting the site because it’s not complete," he said. "It indicates interest in the site itself."
The other company, JASS, is interested in leasing some 13.5 acres of what the port calls the Baywood site at the mouth of the Snohomish River. The company is asking for a one-year lease with two six-month extensions while it seeks permits to develop a major facility to process aggregate used in the construction industry.
Port commissioners approved the lease at their meeting Tuesday.
