Source: Port of  Seattle News Release

December, 2017 – The Port of Seattle
Commission voted to purchase 
Salmon Bay Marina, located on the Ship 
Canal adjacent to the Port’s Fishermen’s
Terminal facility. The five acre property
contains five docks supporting 166 slips
measuring 6,547 lineal feet of moorage
on freshwater. The purchase price was $15,679,120.

There are a number of potential uses for the property, including light industrial facilities that could support maritime and manufacturing companies in the area.

“We applaud the Port of Seattle for purchasing and preserving this unique freshwater recreational boat facility,” said Peter Schrappen, Director of Government Affairs for the Northwest Marine Trade Association. “These assets are rare, and help maintain maritime and family-wage jobs.”  More details here...
