Chelan Port acquires Lineage Logistics South campus property

Lineage Logisitics

The Chelan County Port district is making a major investment in the future development of Wenatchee’s warehouse district. Port Commissioners today gave the green light to proceed with the purchase of Lineage Logistics South campus properties for 4.5 million dollars.

The purchase includes several old fruit storage buildings along Columbia Street’s warehouse district that the Port intends to divide into smaller parcels that could be marketed for private sale and development.

Commissioner Rory Turner said the property’s location between downtown Wenatchee and the riverfront presents a lot of exciting opportunities for private development. 

The Port intends to work with the city to determine a shared vision for the property. Its also possible that the Port will retain ownership of one or two buildings for use as future business incubators.

The next step will involve an environmental cleanup assessment of the property. Lineage Logistics’s North Campus property on Worthen Street will remain on the market for sale.
