Final Demolition Underway to Make Room for the Port of Kennewick's Wine Village

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, WA - Crews have started tearing down another building along Columbia Drive to make way for the Port of Kennewick's new Wine Village. 

C-1 Auto Painting is the last of the buildings along the waterfront to come down. 

"That building is coming down and that really is making the site ready. Kind of the last step that needs to take place before we can start building the new winery building. The new winery building will take its place as soon as Big D's gets the building cleared out. That site will be the first phase and the Port is going to begin construction on three new buildings in order to accommodate wineries there on the water front on Columbia Drive," says Tana Bader Inglima with the Port of Kennewick. 

The Port had planned to retrofit the existing structure into the design plan but the funds to do that exceeded the budget, so the port decided to build new. 

Construction will start as soon as the debris from the demolition is cleared. 

The Port of Kennewick says they hope to have the buildings ready for use by the end of the year.
