Waterfront Place Central

About the development
The Port of Everett’s Waterfront Place Central redevelopment project is more than just a large scale real estate venture.  The intent of the project is to provide jobs and access to the waterfront. The strategy is to unify the marina and surrounding property as one economic unit to create a sustainable and unique commercial, recreation and residential community.  

This new community is pedestrian-oriented and takes full advantage of its attractive waterfront and recreational boating setting.  It also supports the final phases of the Port’s state-of-the-art regional boat sales and services center in the largest public marina on the West Coast. 

When fully realized, the Waterfront Place Development is expected to support 2,075 family-wage jobs. The project’s private development will generate $8.6 million annually in state and local sales taxes; in addition to the temporary construction jobs, sales tax and building permit revenues.
