A developer has submitted plans for a 192,000-square-foot, light-industrial warehouse on a 10-acre site in the Fruit Valley area. The project, Portside Vancouver, would be a tilt-up concrete warehouse surrounded by a parking lot.
The site sits on the north side of Lower River Road across from the administrative offices of the Port of Vancouver and is bordered by Northwest 32nd Avenue to the west. The site is undeveloped and does not currently have an address, although it is directly south of another similar warehouse off of Northwest 32nd Avenue that was built in the past few years.
The proposed building would be a single-story warehouse, divided into approximately 95 percent warehouse space and 5 percent office space, although that ratio will depend on the tenant. A tenant has not been identified, according to the pre-application packet. The final height of the building will also depend on the needs of the tenant, but will be approximately 38 to 40 feet.
The building would include 30 truck loading bays on the side facing 32nd Avenue, which would also serve as the primary access route.
The pre-application packet was submitted by architecture firm Nelson Worldwide on behalf of site owner Peterson Machinery Company. A pre-application conference with the city of Vancouver is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. July 25.
