Timeline of the waterfront development

The Port of Everett had high hopes for the Port Gardner Wharf project, a private-public partnership that would have built up to 660 condos, commercial space and office buildings near the waterfront. The plan soured along with the economy.
October 2000: The Port of Everett teams up with the Maritime Trust Co. for a multimillion-dollar redevelopment of the North Marina area.
August 2002: The Everett Planning Commission is besieged by neighbors concerned about the project's potential effect on views.
September 2006: The port approves a financial agreement with Maritime Trust, clearing the way to start on the first phase.
May 2007: The port and Maritime Trust break ground, promising "the finest development on Puget Sound." Maritime reports 135 reservations for condos.
June 2007: Construction is delayed after a major financial backer pulls out.
May 2009: Everett Maritime, a subsidiary of Maritime Trust, files for bankruptcy protection.
September 2010: Port terminates contract with Maritime Trust and scraps the project.
June 2011: Port auctions off furniture from a model condo and other remnants of the Port Gardner Wharf project, including a golden shovel used at groundbreaking.
October 2011: Boaters, residents and business people provide recommendations on a new plan for the land.
February 2012: The port asks the public for feedback to help a planning team determine how to improve the Marina District Master Plan, which includes the land for the failed Port Gardner Wharf project.
