Received this update today from the Port of Everett as they continue to develop the north end of the Marina for residential, commercial and recreational uses.

Last month, the Port Commission authorized a nearly $3.7 million contract with Granite Construction to build the new SE Millwright Loop and open spaces – the final phase of upland public infrastructure within the Fisherman’s Harbor district of Waterfront Place.

The project creates additional roadway access from Fisherman’s Harbor to the Port’s Central Docks, and eventually, to future phases of the Waterfront Place project. Plans also include utility work, creation of a new marina parking lot, connection of the new Fisherman’s Harbor esplanade to the existing esplanade along the north side of the Central Docks and construction of a new public space between the coming Hotel Indigo and the Port’s new Pacific Rim Plaza and splash fountain.

Work is expected to begin late-July and conclude with the opening of Fisherman’s Harbor in mid-2019.

“This is an exciting time for our community,” Port Commissioner Bruce Fingarson said. “By this time next year, the highly anticipated Fisherman’s Harbor will officially open for all to enjoy, providing access to the waterfront’s newest central gathering space at Pacific Rim Plaza, new lodging and dining at Hotel Indigo, and shortly thereafter, new housing and restaurant opportunities.”

After two years of construction, in March 2018, the Port wrapped up its initial $12 million infrastructure investment at Fisherman’s Harbor – the first phase of the Port’s 65-acre mixed-use Waterfront Place development. Work included roadways, utilities and marine elements, including a new bulkhead and the new Seiner Wharf, and public access amenities, including the new Pacific Rim Plaza and splash fountain.

Completing this work paved the way for private development to being in March 2018 with the groundbreaking of the site’s 142-room Hotel Indigo. Other private projects in the pipeline include 266 waterfront apartment units by SeaLevel Properties and future restaurants, both anticipated to begin construction in the late-2018/early-2019 timeframe.

Later this month, the Port will also bid its multi-million in-water Central Marina Improvements Project – Phase 3, dovetailing with upland public and private development. This work includes marina dredging and construction of a new Central guest dock/public walking dock that connects with Fisherman’s Harbor and moorage dock upgrades adjacent to the development.
