282 acre parcel 6,000' of deep-draft Columbia River access Located at river mile 62 Access to rail and highway
The Port of Longview seized the opportunity for future growth by purchasing Barlow Point in 2010. The 280-acre greenfield acquisition is a critical supplement to the Port's 353 acres of industrial property, which is nearing capacity.
Just 4 miles downriver from the Port proper, the Barlow Point sits directly on a naturally deep portion of the Columbia River shipping channel. Located within Longview city limits and zoned manufacturing, as is the Port's existing industrial property.
The Port purchased the property with a winning bid of $2,451,750 at a trustee sale at the Cowlitz County Administration Building on October 22, 2010. The site was previously owned by Terra Firma, Inc. and is the former site of Longview Motocross.
Non-tax supported general revenue bonds were issued in late November 2010 to finance the acquisition.
