Vancouver USA Soliciting Developers

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Vancouver USA is looking for developers with ideas for a portion of its 10-acre site on the Columbia River in Vancouver, Washington.

Developers have until 5 p.m. PST on March 21 to submit proposals for designing, permitting, constructing and managing a mixed-used development on available land at Terminal 1, which includes two blocks on the north part of Columbia Way between the riverfront and Vancouver’s downtown. The mixed-use development concept is to include office, residential, retail on the ground level and parking.

“Our request for qualifications is an important step toward reinventing this remarkable waterfront property as the premier gateway to Washington state and the connection to all our community has to offer, from public trails and historic sites to distinctive shopping and restaurants,” said Mike Schiller, port director of business development. “Terminal 1, and specifically the mixed-use development, will be vital to the ongoing revitalization of the Columbia River waterfront.”
