Spring auction includes Clark County properties

Realty Marketing/Northwest will offer 65 Washington and Oregon properties in its upcoming auction. Six sites are located in Clark County, including a 2.1-acre, general commercial-zoned property in Fisher’s Landing and a 10-acre, residential-zoned property in Felida.

The Fisher’s Landing lot is located on Southeast 165th Avenue and was identified by the city of Vancouver as one of the few opportunities to develop a mid-high rise residential tower not impacted by height limitations within the Portland International Airport flight path, according to RM/NW.

The Felida neighborhood site was originally planned as the 33-lot Cougar Creek Woods Subdivision. Located at 11515 N.W. 16th Ave., just south of Northwest 119th Street, the net developable area is 8.69 acres. More information is available at www.rmnw-auctions.com.
