Surplus WSDOT Parcel to Create Des Moines Creek-West Development

The Port of Seattle Commission approved the purchase of a 14-acre surplus Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) parcel. This acreage will create another industrial development and jobs opportunity in Des Moines, WA.

The 14-acre WSDOT parcel, a surplus from the SR509 project, will combine with a similar sized Port of Seattle parcel to create the 28-acre Des Moines Creek-West development. The site is next to the Des Moines Creek Business Park which was developed by the Port in 2014 and now houses the new FAA Regional Headquarters and multiple industrial warehouse facilities.

The Port owns land around SEA Airport that is being redeveloped to create local jobs and spur local business activity.

“As one of the largest centers of regional economic activity, the airport can help drive economic recovery,” said Stephanie Bowman, Port of Seattle commissioner. “In the last six years, the Port has worked with developers to construct over 2 million square feet of light industrial property that support key airport operations and support local jobs. By developing our industrial properties, we limit sprawl, attract and retain growing businesses, and keep jobs within King County.”
