Everett Waterfront Housing Construction Starts

Construction has begun on Everett Waterfront Place Apartments, the latest project in the Port of Everett’s new 65-acre Waterfront Place Central Redevelopment, according to Calgary development firm Gracorp and local builder SeaLevel Properties.

When completed, a pair of four-story buildings, located at 1300 and 1400 W. Marine View Drive, will offer 266 homes ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments.

“Gracorp is aligned with our parent company Graham Construction to not only build a multifamily site, but truly transform it and take advantage of the rich history and beauty of this area,” said Gracorp Director Giuseppe Augello. “We are excited to work with the Port of Everett on the Waterfront Place Central Redevelopment. Given Everett’s and the region’s growth, 2,000 marina boat slips next to our project, and until now lack of housing along the waterfront, the interest in the project is very strong.”

The project totals more than 247,000 square feet. The North Building featuring 135 units should be completed by spring 2021, while the 131-unit South Building should be ready for the summer.

“This historic project will bring housing to the Everett waterfront for the first time in its history, and provide an early signal to the community and follow on developers that the Port is committed to implementing its vision of a vibrant destination waterfront,” said the Port of Everett.
