Marathon Ventures is ready to expand its manufacturing operations into the old No Frills building directly to its north.
Bret Beller, acting for Marathon Equity, LLC, submitted an application to the Bellevue Planning Commission asking the area occupied by the former No Frills building be rezoned from Heavy General Business to Light Manufacturing.
Marathon Ventures, 909 Fort Crook Road N., processes and packages nuts, popcorn and coffee in the building adjacent to the former No Frills building. The rezoning will permit expansion of their processing and packaging functions.
Marathon Ventures employs 75 full-time employees. The expansion is expects to add about 25 new full-time jobs. The property valuation of the two-building complex is estimated to increase by $1 million to a total of $2.3 million.
About $1 million of the redevelopment costs will be through tax-increment financing.
A public hearing on the proposal will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday in the City Council chamber at Bellevue City Hall, 210 W. Mission Ave.
The Bellevue Planning Department has recommended approval.
