Duke Realty purchases 92 acres of land in DuPont

Business, News 3 19

The Puget Sound Business Journal is reporting that Duke Realty, out of Indianapolis, Indiana, has paid $26.1 million for 92 acres of land in DuPont. Puget Sound Business Journal staff writer Marc Stiles reports that the Duke Realty won’t say what it intends to build on the land, which is located east of Creekside Village and west of Intel.

Duke Realty was involved with building a 1-million-square-foot distribution facility for Amazon in Middletown, Delaware and Phoenix, Arizona.

Duke Realty submitted an application to the City of DuPont on November 2, 2012 for a lot line adjustment, requesting to eliminate a property line between two parcels of land.  A Type 1 Administrative Decision was signed on November 15, approving the lot line adjustment with conditions. The land is zoned for manufacturing and research.

City of DuPont offices were closed therefore we could not reach anyone for further comment.  We will update this story as it develops.

    An Amazon.com distribution facility in DuPont would be nice, says I.

    REET windfall! If it is indeed an Amazon distribution facility (or any other million square foot facility) that would be an excellent addition to DuPont!

    I’m hoping the city is really taking a look at the I-5 interchange where Barksdale and Steilacoom-DuPont Road come together. Increased truck traffic could really impact traffic at that intersection.

    I think that whoever is building there is doing so because of our trails and museum, naturally. That is why we are all here, right?

    Actually Tom, the REET ‘windfall’ from this transaction (sans building) would barely cover 10% of the Civic Center payment for 2013.
