The Port of Seattle has approved a long-term ground lease for a portion of Terminal 106 to Trammell Crow Company (TCC), one of the US’ leading developers and investors in commercial real estate.
In a statement, the Port said it will facilitate the demolition of the current warehouse on the property and the subsequent redevelopment of a 700,000 square-foot, two-storey light industrial warehouse.
The new facility will be able to support e-commerce, manufacturers and logistics providers that support maritime industries.
The Terminal 106 development will play a role in supporting the cargo handling and logistics sector of the Port’s maritime operations.
From a regional traffic standpoint, by shortening the distance from the container terminal to last-mile destinations, the building’s location can help limit the number of trucks freighting cargo down I-5 from Seattle to as far as south of Tacoma, managing traffic, noise, and air pollution in the region.
Port of Seattle Commissioner Peter Steinbrueck, “Industrial lands are the backbone of our region’s economic resilience and full of untapped potential.
“Putting a strategic property back into productive use creates immediate construction jobs and lasting economic development opportunities for nearby underrepresented communities.
“Trammell Crow Company developed our Des Moines Creek North property in the City of SeaTac and we look forward to work with them on this project.”
The project will provide approximately 140 prevailing wage construction jobs during the building of the property and is expected to be complete by 2024.
Mark Netherland, a Managing Director with TCC Seattle, also commented, “”We are pleased to be working alongside the Port of Seattle on this important project, which will create a significant advantage for the Port as it advances its logistics capabilities and ability to attract world-class industrial tenants to this market.
“The new building will provide state-of-the-art logistics capabilities and include features that current and future industrial tenants require for their space.”
