Astoria Warehousing Inc., a salmon-canning company occupying several acres along the central waterfront near the Astoria Bridge, will close in the near future, according to multiple sources.

The company employs around 20 to 25 people and was formed in 1983 at the site of the former Elmore Cannery. Astoria Warehousing’s parent companies include Bellevue, Washington-based Peter Pan Seafoods and Seattle-based Icicle Seafoods, recently acquired by Canadian seafood giant Cooke Aquaculture.

Company officials declined comment.

Astoria Warehousing’s campus includes several acres of land zoned general commercial on the waterfront just east of the Astoria Bridge. The company also owns a large portion of two tax lots extending over the river in an aquatic development zone focused on redevelopment. The real market value of the land and improvements is more than $5 million, according to county records.

Astoria Warehousing is just west of the recently closed Stephanie’s Cabin and The Ship Inn restaurants. Both were purchased by hotel developer Mark Hollander from Bellingham, Washington. Hollander has been researching places to potentially site a Marriott Hotel franchise.
