The Port of Bellingham has begun work on a third office building in its Bellwether on the Bay development.
The two-floor, 10,000-square-foot building will be located next to the Anthony’s at Squalicum Harbor restaurant. The building is being constructed by private developer Bellwether Gate LLC, owned by Dave Ebenal.
“It is great to see continued development in our Bellwether project during these difficult economic times,” Port Commission President Scott Walker said, in a Feb. 1 press release. “Our public/private partnership with Bellwether Gate is an excellent example of how we can develop our waterfront.”
Wells Fargo & Co. will be the anchor tenant for the new building. There are about 40 businesses operating in the development, employing more that 725 people, according to the Port.
Bellwether Gate LLC is scheduled to begin construction on a fourth building in 2013, which will be the final building in the development.
“We are pleased to be building a third project in the very successful Bellwether on the Bay development,” said Ebenal, in the release. “We value our partnership with the Port of Bellingham.”
