The Port of Woodland began planning for additional future development in the late 1990’s and into the early 2000’s with the purchase of property along Guild Road. These properties are now referred to as Guild Road Industrial Park. Gibbs & Olson was recently selected to provide conceptual designs and a binding site plan for Guild Road Industrial Park II (Park II) which consists of approximately 16 acres. The conceptual designs and binding site plan will be developed to provide flexibility of buildings ranging in size from 5,000 to 45,000 square feet. With the development of the Park II facilities, the Port of Woodland will be able to provide facilities for light industrial warehousing, transportation and distribution firms.
