The Port of Seattle and Port of Tacoma are close to finalizing a nearly half billion-dollar plan to renovate West Seattle’s Terminal 5 and shift existing containers to other terminals in the meantime. It would likely mean significant changes at Terminal 46 near the stadium district.
It’s an ambitious proposal that is the result of years of work and comes after the Port of Seattle quietly approved a property tax increase last month to help subsidize some of the cost.
“It is a really significant investment,” said Port of Seattle Commission President Stephanie Bowman while she discussed the plan that will be fully unveiled at an 11:30 a.m. meeting of the Northwest Seaport Alliance.
