On Tuesday, August 11, the Port of Everett Commission authorized a lease with South Fork Baking Company, LLC for its new South Fork Bakery, securing the first of six new retail spaces to be built next year within the Fisherman’s Harbor district of the Port’s 65-acre, mixed-use Waterfront Place development.

 The lease supports a 10-year base term commitment with one, 5-year extension option, and includes 1,200 square feet of new waterfront retail frontage and use of shared indoor/outdoor patio space at one of up to three new retail/restaurant concept buildings currently in design. The Port intends to move into construction on the building pads in 2021.

“As a person who grew up in the Everett area and has deep roots in recreation and fishing there, I am so excited to watch the development at the Port and for the chance to become a part of the community there,” said Katherine Hillmann, Owner-Operator of South Fork Baking Company. “My top priority is to make South Fork Baking Company a space where everyone feels welcome to stay a while. I hope that the bakery will become a life-long staple for those who visit the Port!”

South Fork Baking Company will serve a variety of baked goods and light bites made fresh daily from quality ingredients. Product mix will include light fare featuring locally produced foods, pastry, cookies, and decorated cakes. Cake decorating and pastry skills classes will also be offered at this space.

The bakery is to be located at the south end of the approximately 5,200 square foot retail building slated for development site A8 in Fisherman’s Harbor, adjacent to the new 142-room Hotel Indigo and coming 266-unit Waterfront Place Apartments. The Port is currently at 30-percent conceptual design for the three-suite structure anticipated to break ground in 2021 with opening as early as 2022.

Building design by architect firm Cushing Terrell creates an open-air, timber-theme concept that pays tribute to the site’s historic mill town roots and features cascading windows, patio seating overlooking the surrounding Fisherman’s Harbor promenade and an outdoor fireplace at the north end.

 “We are excited to welcome the new flavor and culinary talent South Fork Bakery brings to the Waterfront Place neighborhood,” said Terrie Battuello, Port of Everett’s Chief of Business and Economic Development. “Given the market right now, it’s extremely encouraging to have such a high level of interest from quality companies like the bakery and others, who are looking two to three years into the future, because they see value and business opportunity in this development.”

The Port continues to pursue a variety of quality restaurants and retailers for the available retail pads at Waterfront Place, including the new retail spaces coming to Fisherman’s Harbor. The project envisions up to 60,000 square feet of retail opportunities.
