Marina Center land may have two Wiyot villages on site

The Sacramento Railyard gets a cleanup: "Brownfield Award The California Pollution Control Financing Authority in November approved a $15 million grant from Proposition IC for clean-up at the former Union Pacific Railroad site. The money was part of $53.8 million in grants and loans awarded to redevelopment projects in Sacramento and 10 other counties in the state. While $5 million has been awarded, the balance requires additional state action as part of a pending economic stimulus plan which remains under discussion. "  (Dec 10, 2008 | post #34)

Portland port suspends search for terminal investor

Portland port suspends search for terminal investor Updated December 9, 2008 9:54:24 AM The JOURNAL of COMMERCE ONLINE The Port of Portland has suspended its search for a private investor to lease and operate its Terminal 6 container facility. Port officials decided to put the terminal concession process, which began earlier this year and was spearheaded by Morgan Stanley, on ice in light of economic conditions and tight capital and credit markets. As recently as October, officials had said that the Columbia River port was on track for a final decision by the end of the year on proposals from about 10 potential partners for the long-term concession to operate up to 215 acres of the 428-acre facility. They said at that time that the concession project would be unaffected by current economic and financial conditions because of its long-term nature — 50 years or more. The move by the port was intended to take it out of direct operation of the container business at T-6. The terminal has never reached its full 700,000-TEU capacity while under port management. Portland’s T-6 is the only remaining port-operated container facility on the West Coast.  (Dec 10, 2008 | post #1)

Final marine terminal report complete

Now tell me about that federal transportation funding... In 1998 FEMA estimated it would cost $650 million to rebuild the line to Eureka.  (Nov 3, 2008 | post #29)

Chinese company sells Evergreen Pulp

Yup. Sure looks like Evergreen was sold to a third party not affiliated with Lee & Man.  (Nov 3, 2008 | post #35)

Pulp mill company sold, CEO says move is to refinance

QuamNews: L&M Paper Sells US Paper Pulp Making Biz at HK$200 Mln 17 Oct 2008 QuamNews Lee & Man Paper (2314) said it disposed the entire interest in USLM Acquisition, Inc. and HKLM Acquisition, Inc, (”USLM & HKLM”) at a consideration of HK$200 million. USLM & HKLM were paper pulp manufacturers in the USA. The gain from the transaction was estimated at about HK$1 million and the consideration was decided based on the net book value of the assets of USLM & HKLM. The transaction was completed on 15 October. Raymond Lee, CEO of Lee & Man Paper, said, “The profit margins of USLM & HKLM have been dwindling significantly because of the continuing increasingly production cost in USA. With what’s best for long-term development of the group in mind and the pulp line in Chongqing plant has started production, we decided it is the right time to dispose of the business. The move has freed resources for us to concentrate on growing our containerboard and pulp businesses in China with lower production costs.”  (Oct 17, 2008 | post #13)

Global meltdown hits home

The Harbor District has written into its Management Plan to do everything it can to keep bayside property zoned marine dependent. All those acres around the bay can only be used for industrial purposes dependent on the bay.  (Oct 17, 2008 | post #48)
