Vancouver waterfront developer slams oil terminal plan

Barry Cain is no friend of the proposal to build the Northwest’s largest oil-handling facility at the Port of Vancouver.Port of Vancouver director defends oil planNow the real estate developer charged with remaking Vancouver’s waterfront has expanded on his earlier public misgivings about the project’s environmental risks and its impacts on downtown development, raising a multitude of new worries. Those new concerns include what he calls “information gaps” in the permit-application submitted by Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies and in the lease the port approved with the companies.Cain spells out his concerns in a 54-page letter to the Washington State Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council in which he asks for the most extensive environmental-impact review available. Cain’s letter is among more than 31,000 public comments EFSEC received as it mulls what should and should not be included in an environmental examination of the proposed oil-by-rail operation.Tesoro and Savage want to build a $110 million facility capable of handling as much as 380,000 barrels of crude oil per day for eventual conversion into transportation fuels. Cain’s waterfront project, which will take advantage of infrastructure investments by the city and the Port of Vancouver, is less than two miles east of the oil terminal and next to rail lines that would carry oil trains headed for the port.Cain, president of Gramor Development — a member, along with local investors, of Columbia Waterfront LLC — seeks to construct a $1.3 billion mixed-use redevelopment of the former Boise Cascade mill site.The situation pits two megaprojects, each with sharply contrasting visions of Vancouver’s future, against each other as questions fly about the sustainability of the Tesoro-Savage plan and about the viability of the waterfront enterprise.last_img read more
