Port of Everett Awards Design Contract for New Buildings in Fisherman's Harbor

Date: Mar 13, 2023

Last month, the Port of Everett Commission awarded a $1.5 million contract to Seattle-based BCRA to complete the design of two new buildings, bringing more retail and restaurants to the Port’s mixed-use Waterfront Place development.

One building will be constructed next door to the soon-to-open Fisherman Jack’s and South Fork Baking Co. This building will house Anisoptera Spa, Rustic Cork Wine Bar and Menchie’s @ the Marina. The Port is actively recruiting a complementary restaurant such as a breakfast spot or pizza place to fill the balance of the building.

The other building, at the corner of Seiner and West Marine View drives, facing the Port's commercial fishing dock, will feature Lazy Boy Brewing Co. The Port is also targeting a year-round fish market here. Port development partner The Shuster Group will be breaking ground on the new buildings in "restaurant row" later this year. Businesses are expected to open in the 2024/2025 timeframe.

About Waterfront Place

The Port of Everett’s Waterfront Place is a new 1.5 million square foot mixed-use development located on 65 acres at the waterfront near the downtown core in Everett, Washington. The development boasts spectacular views, waterfront access, recreational amenities, and a world-class marina – the largest public Marina on the West Coast – with 2,300 slips and 5,000 linear feet of guest moorage. At full build-out, the Waterfront Place mixed-use development will include 63,000 square feet (sf) of retail/restaurant space, another 20,000 sf of marine retail, 447,500 sf of office, two waterfront hotels, and up to 660 waterfront housing units. Featured amenities include new trails and regional parks, public gathering spaces, a variety of fine and casual dining, local shops, and marine sales and services. The project’s expected $1 billion in public/private investment is estimated to support nearly 2,100 family-wage jobs and generate $8.6 million annually in state and local sales taxes. To date, the Port has facilitated more than $300 million in public/private investment here, with more to come.
