Looks like there's a geotech crew on site today. Work may be getting under way soon.
The Cold Storage facility has been delayed (temporarily) because of construction cost increases, but they anticipate a groundbreaking "sometime this year" The facility will actually be a little bit larger than initially planned, With an extra ~7,000 sq ft and 2 additional truck bays added to the waterfront side of the building. They've been doing some additional engineering work, which is another reason for the delay. (From my understanding, these changes won't require separate planning approval)Anyone know what happened to this? As mentioned above there was some equipment on site, but that has long since disappeared.
And, as we discussed on another site, there are few if any meaningful improvements that are even possible at Yard 8 due to the small site and being hemmed in by PYS.-With CSX in town...Eimskip anticipates draying ship-to-rail containers to a future intermodal terminal being built by CSX at Rigby yard. This means that the "Yard 8" intermodal ramp at the IMT will remain unused unless improvements are made . (There's nothing currently planned)
If were voting, 8 would vote no on that. Let this thread stay with the cold storage project, and start a new thread for waterfront discussion (which we already have a lot of in Skyline Photos that could me moved over).I'd also like to petition to change the title of this thread to
" Working Waterfront and Port Developments | Portland"
for discussion about anything related to the working waterfront and commercial marine activity
