Cordata Business Industrial Park in North Bellingham

The Cordata Business Industrial Park in North Bellingham was originally approved to the master plan by Whatcom County in 1986. A few years later in 1989 the Cordata Business Park Association was formed and the park rules were established. The business park would eventually be annexed into the City of Bellingham, however the association and rules remained intact. The original plan for the park was to create over 13 million square feet of high tech office, light and medium industrial, retail, institutional, residential and recreational uses in a controlled, designed environment. While the total development fell far short of the original goal the overall design was a success. For industrial buildings the key thing to understand is that tilt wall construction is requirement within the park.

Time will tell what sort of industrial space opportunities arise from the Harcourt development.
