Ready Bros Negotiating Maine State Pier Space

According to an article in today’s Press Herald Ready Lobster Co is in the process of inking a deal with the city to lease part of the Maine State Pier for their wholesale lobster business.

The council will decide Monday whether to lease a portion of the large shed at the end of the city-owned pier to Ready Seafood Co. for $100,000 a year.

Although the 3,000-square-foot tank might be the closest thing to an aquarium that Portland ever sees, the operation would be strictly industrial.

The company, now located behind Becky’s Diner on Hobson’s Wharf, would move to the Maine State Pier and use the new facility for wholesaling, packaging, shipping and processing.

  1. That property should be leased for more than $100,000. The city needs to rethink the development. It has more potential for tax revenue and jobs. Seriously? What a fricken’ joke, just like the way our city spends our tax money! Bull Feeney’s pays more in lease money annually to Joe Soley for there property!
