Woods Coffee Joins Growing Tenant Mix at Port of Everett's Waterfront Place
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – AUGUST 27, 2021
Everett, Wash. – The Port of Everett and Woods Coffee have brewed up a new lease to bring the popular Pacific Northwest coffeehouse to Waterfront Place.
This new long-term lease secures 2,000 interior square feet, expansive outdoor patio space and a highly desired drive-thru at a new 5,000 square foot building now in design for the corner of 18th Street and West Marine View Drive.
Waterfront Place marks the second Snohomish County location for the local coffee shop that has 19 locations throughout Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish, and King Counties.
"We are excited to be a part of this new waterfront project, by serving guests and providing a place for the community to connect," said Kelly Spiker, President of Woods Coffee.
The key corner location has sat vacant since relocation of the historic Weyerhaeuser Building to Boxcar Park back in 2016. Adding the coffee shop will activate that space with both indoor and outdoor dining just steps from Naval Station Everett and the new Grand Avenue Park Bridge.
The drive-thru is intended to add convenience for area residents, the working waterfront community and those who pass through West Marine View Drive for their daily commutes.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Woods Coffee to bring this new amenity to Waterfront Place,” Port of Everett Commissioner Glen Bachman said. “This company is a quintessential Pacific Northwest staple loved by many. They bring the type of character and overall experience we are looking to achieve as we build out this destination waterfront with distinction.”
Building design will honor the maritime and naval history at the waterfront, while the Woods Coffee name and brand will nod to the site’s mill town roots.
Construction is anticipated to begin in early-2022 with the building slated to open in fall 2022.
The Port is actively recruiting businesses for the additional 3,000 square feet in the new building. Interested in this space or any other retail, restaurant, office or commercial space? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
