The deadline is approaching for applicants interested in possibly leasing and developing the site on which the former Star-Kist Processing Plant sits in the fish harbor area at Terminal Island in San Pedro Bay.

Applicants have until 3 p.m. on April 20 to submit their interest to the Port of Los Angeles’ Harbor Department on the 1050 Ways Street site.

The roughly 8.63-acre site includes a big warehouse with a 267,720-square-foot ground-floor building footprint and a 38,165-square-foot parking area.

Submissions from the port’s Requests for Expressions of Interest will be “an important factor in determining whether the Harbor Department will proceed with a competitive process designed to lead to an agreement,” said the port.

The Los Angeles Conservancy views the old plant as “one of the last remaining facilities connected to Los Angeles’s once prolific canning industry” and is against demolishing the plant.
