Growth Ensures a Bright Future at the Port
Expansion is a state of mind, one we continually nurture here at the Port of Ridgefield. Learn more about our planned and ongoing projects to benefit businesses and residents alike.
Development of Dark Fiber Optics
The Port of Ridgefield is investing in dark fiber optic infrastructure to promote world-class, high-performance economic development in Southwest Washington’s Discovery Corridor. A publicly-owned dark fiber loop will reduce time-to-market deployment of high-speed fiber. The loop will lower up-front capital needs for service providers and allow them to better compete in serving their end users. In turn, their clients will benefit from system access, lower costs, greater bandwidth and more reliable service for basic business infrastructure. This project has begun and will continue to evolve in 2016 and beyond.
With quick proximity to I-5 and zoning for residential, commercial, and light industrial businesses, Discovery Ridge offers exceptional benefits to both established businesses looking for more space and new businesses seeking a progressive, like-minded community. Discovery Ridge is suitable for headquarter locations, offices, high education, research and development companies, manufacturing, medical device development, and the renewable energy indusry.
We look forward to inviting new and established businesses to this area, growing our local resources while providing incredible tax incentives and close proximity to the Portland/Vancouver Metro Area.
Miller’s Landing Waterfront Revitalization
The Ridgefield waterfront is an invaluable local resource, one we are thrilled to continue to develop with Miller’s Landing. The property, adjacent to the National Wildlife Refuge, offers visitors boating, fishing, paddle-boarding, kayaking, picnicking, walking, hiking, birding, and photography opportunities and is zoned for mixed-use development. We look forward to continuing to grow this area, promoting pleasurable use and visitor convenience. New and established businesses welcome!
We’re taking the next steps to develop The Port of Ridgefield into an even more incredible home for business owners and residents. If you’re interested in opportunities here at the port, contact us!
