Port of Seattle to Develop Uplands

By Karen Robes Meeks

Port of Seattle commissioners agreed to spend $4 million toward the first phase of the Terminal 91 (T-91) Uplands Development, a move that supports infrastructure expansion of the area north of Magnolia Bridge.

The port’s Real Estate Development Department plans to build two 50,000-square-foot light industrial buildings to help maritime manufacturers and fishing industry suppliers in the Ballard Interbay Manufacturing Industrial Center.

The development will be done in two phases, spending the next 10 to 15 years, with the first phase focused on existing T-91 tenants and other maritime customers who want to expand operations on the property.

“With this approval, we can move forward with providing our local fishing and maritime clusters with much-needed industrial property,” said Commissioner Peter Steinbrueck. “We know that the key to expanding family-wage jobs in this region is developing industrial lands such as Terminal 91, an asset that can deliver jobs and growth for decades to come.”
