A majority of the industrial land located east of the Guide Meridian is zoned for larger parcels. This is a good location for businesses that need a significant yard for their inventory along with all weather shipping and receiving. Many of these industrial parcels are 5 and 10 acres in size.

The Sunnyland Neighborhood and Retail Industrial Zoning

The industrial zoned property located in lower Sunnyland is well established. Most of the commercial businesses and buildings in this area have been in Bellingham for a long time. Before Bellingham expanded, this was the originally area zoned for industrial businesses. The advantage of businesses being located in this area is the proximity to supporting vendors and to downtown Bellingham. In more recent years, this area has been a popular location for breweries to locate in Bellingham due to the close proximity to households. The walkable access from the surrounding neighborhoods has made this a great additional to Bellingham’s beer culture, however has taken a toll on available industrial land.

Other Areas with Industrial Zoning in Bellingham

In addition to the major three industrial areas previously mentioned, there are also small pockets of industrial zoning scattered throughout Bellingham. Some of this property is owned by the Port of Bellingham and leased to private businesses. These properties are primarily located along the waterfront in Fairhaven and downtown Bellingham, or near the airport.
