Three finalists for the job of setting a vision for redevelopment of Everett’s north marina waterfront and helping to carry it through will be interviewed today by members of the Port of Everett commission.
The special meeting is open to the public and begins at 9 a.m. in the commission meeting room at 2911 Bond St, Suite 109.
Interviews are expected to get under way at 9:20 a.m. when the three commissioners talk to members of a corporate team led by Heartland Corp. Talks with the Maritime Trust Co. team and the Trammell Crow Co. team begin at 11 a.m. and 1:15 p.m., respectively.
No dollar amount has been set for the redevelopment contract; that will be negotiated later. But it’s a major task. The commission wants to hire a developer-led team that can create a vision for the north marina, secure the necessary permits for changing it and get the work done.
As a starting point, port staff members envision an enhanced marina entrance on 13th Street, easier accessibility to pedestrians and bicyclists, more public access to the water and more commercial development.
The emphasis would be on businesses like restaurants, hotels and shops as opposed to the industrial development there now.
