Bluefield Holdings, Inc. is pleased to announce the purchase of a plot of land from the Port of Seattle located on the West Waterway of the Duwamish River. This parcel, in conjunction with leased City of Seattle property and an easement from the Washington Department of Natural Resources, completes the footprint of Bluefield’s second NRD Habitat Restoration Project on the West Waterway (Site 2). By incorporating this parcel into the Site 2 project, Bluefield will realize a larger habitat restoration project and a reduction in the amount of excavation that will be required to construct the habitat. The purchase of this parcel completes a two year negotiation with the Port of Seattle and opens the door to future property transactions between Bluefield and the Port.
[Site 2 construction is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2016 with completion after the first of the year 2017. The Site is projected to produce approximately 112 NRD Bank® Credits of which 30 have already been reserved.]
