SEATTLE – Immunex Corp. has agreed to buy a portion of the property commonly known as Pier 89, immediately west of the 29-acre site where the Seattle biotechnology company plans to break ground next year on its $450 million waterfront campus. An Immunex spokeswoman declined to identify the specific parcel, but others familiar with the deal said it involves a two-acre site occupied by PhotoWorks Inc. toward the middle of the pier. That property and another are sandwiched between two pieces of land at opposite ends of the pier, each of which was acquired within the past year by partnerships assembled by Denver investor Charles Wathen. Wathen acknowledged that he had sought for "the past several years" to buy the Pier 89 parcel Immunex has agreed to acquire. David Alexander of Alexander Commercial Real Estate is representing Immunex in the pending deal.
