Richland and ConAgra Foods have signed a $1.4 million agreement for the city to sell land at Columbia Point to the company to build an administrative campus.
ConAgra is buying 8.61 acres to the north and east of Bradley Boulevard near the intersection of Comstock Street. Closing for the land sale is expected in the next three to nine months.
The company plans to build a $28 million building at the site to house 300 employees of Lamb Weston, a ConAgra subsidiary focused on potato processing. Most of those employees would come from the Lamb Weston headquarters the company says it has outgrown on Gage Boulevard in Kennewick.
