According to The Columbian, HP Inc. is negotiating to purchase 68 acres of industrial-use land in Vanouver, Washington.
On December 4th, the city of Vancouver announced that HP was planning to move out of its current leased facilities at the Columbia Tech Center and in Vancouver and build a new location from scratch at what was once the English Pit gravel mine.
According to The Columbian: “The first phase of the move would take up about 28 acres and involve initial development of two office buildings with 330,000 square feet of space. Subsequent phases would see the company’s campus grow to encompass an estimated 1.5 million square feet, including offices, research and development and manufacturing.”
HP currently employs around 1,100 people in Vancouver.
Specifics of the sale, including the land’s price, were worked out between the company and the English family, which still owns the property, Eiken said.
HP first opened its door in Vancouver in 2016, with the some of the center devoted to developing 3D printing.
“We are fortunate that HP, which has had a significant presence in Vancouver for almost 40 years, wants to stay and grow right here in our community,” said Vancouver Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle in a press release.
