Cold storage!

Portland Press Herald: “Some of the world’s biggest players in cold storage are vying to build a multimillion-dollar warehouse on Portland’s waterfront, a project seen as a critical for supporting the city’s port and Maine’s growing food production industry. “

“The warehouse would be built on 6.3 acres of state-owned land just west of the Casco Bay Bridge. The project calls for a private company to build the facility and pay the Maine Port Authority rent on a long-term lease. The state wants bidders to submit their own ideas about the size and type of cold-storage facility. The site could support a warehouse as large as 120,000 square feet and with 12 truck bays.”
