Covington has excellent potential for light industrial development. A large industrial workforce in south King County and transportation links to I-5 and I-90 make the area attractive. In addition, the northeast to southwest orientation of SR18 makes it more desirable for shipping and receiving materials and products outside the greater Seattle area. There are also a number of currently available properties in Covington.
Covington’s affordable land costs and desirable quality of life combine to offer significant benefits to companies looking to build information technology, life sciences, and clean technology facilities. Professional service firms and back-office function businesses will also find Covington attractive.
As south King County continues to grow, demand for medical services will also continue to grow. Health care related companies will find unique opportunities for locating in Covington.
