Kimberly-Clark is selling its 66-acre property in Everett, Wash., after the company closed its pulp-paper mill last month.

The Herald (http://bit.ly/K8nIyf) reports the Port of Everett is considering buying the waterfront property.

Company spokesman Bob Brand says multiple potential buyers have expressed interest.

The property has access to a deep-water channel on Puget Sound, a wharf, a railroad, truck access and a huge, dedicated water supply pipeline. But there’s concern over years of industrial use, even though the state is requiring the company to clean it up.
