The Port of Bellingham is demolishing a storage building known as Webhouse #1, near McMillan Avenue in the industrial part of Blaine Harbor.
The demolition is part of a larger reconfiguration of the harbor that seeks to free up space for fish processors and other industrial tenants near the Sawtooth Dock at the west end of Marine Drive.
Several current Port of Bellingham tenants are interested in expanding in that area. Tenants in the area include a boatyard and several seafood processing companies.
The port has already replaced Webhouse #1 with a new storage building off Marine Drive near Milhollin Drive.
The port hired Lautenbach Recycling to demolish the building for $35,055, said Blaine harbormaster Andy Peterson. The company expects to finish by the end of the week, he said.
