The Port of Everett owns 3,000 acres of property. Learn more about our landholdings, including Riverside Business Park, the Mukilteo Tank Farm, Preston Point and acres of tidelands.
The Port of Everett purchased the 85-acre Riverside Business Park from Weyerhaeuser in 1998. The property, located off West Marine View Drive on the Snohomish River in Everett, was divided and zoned for heavy to light industrial use.
Over the years, the Port has improved the property by bringing it out of the flood plain, and constructing trails, roadways and utilities on the site. The Port Commission’s goals for the property are to support jobs and tax base growth for the Port District.
Since 2007, the Port has sold 5-acres of the Business Park to Motor Trucks International and another 16-acres to Snohomish County. Today, the entire master-planned site is proposed for development, including 16-acres that was sold to KW Projects for a cross dock transportation logistics company and 10 acres that is under development for light industrial use. At full development, between 600 and 800 jobs will be created, including the construction jobs generated as part of site development.
In 2013, the Port of Everett accepted the transfer of the Mukilteo Tank Farm, formerly owned by the U.S. Air Force since the 1930s. The approximately 20 acre parcel along the Mukilteo waterfront is slated for a multi-modal facility that includes a new ferry terminal, Sounder platform, Community Transit and waterfront access. The site is also used to access the Port of Everett’s Mount Baker Terminal aerospace facility.
The 13-acre Preston Point site was the former home of Washington Timber Products. Lumber and mill operations began on the site around 1936. In 1979, sawmill operations were removed, and the site was used for log handling and storage until 1994. Historic industrial timber activities left the industrial site with contaminated soils.
The Port of Everett and Department of Ecology have completed the first phase of clean up on the property, bringing it to unrestricted residential standards. Now the Port of Everett is working on a plan to cleanup the shoreline and evaluate option for future use of the site.
