Port of Everett breaks ground on a coffee cafe and brew pub

Construction timetable calls for opening of Woods Coffee and Sound 2 Summit Brewery in March 2023

EVERETT —The crew of an Everett construction company took a break Thursday and let Port of Everett and city of Everett officials do the heavy lifting at a groundbreaking ceremony.

The Port of Everett event marked the start of construction of a new retail development at Port Gardner Landing, just north of Naval Station Everett at 1710 West Marine View Drive.

When the two single-story buildings are completed, they will house a new coffee cafe and a new brew pub – Woods Coffee and Sound 2 Summit Craft Brewing.

If the schedule and the weather hold, construction is expected to wrap up this winter.

Sound 2 Summit owners’ Doug and Christine Milnor hope to get the keys to the building in December.

Doug Milnor’s target date to open the brewery is March 25, 2023 the day he turns 60, he said. The couple operate a brewery and restaurant of the same name in Snohomish.

Woods Coffee’s chief operating officer Kelly Spiker said the Bellingham-based chain hopes to open around the same time.

The Schuster Group is developing the Port Gardner site and other retail projects at Waterfront Place near West Marine View Drive between 13th and 10th streets.

Kirtley-Cole General Contractor, Cushing Terrell Architects, PND Engineers and Landscape Architecture are project participants.

Fisherman’s Harbor, near the new Waterfront Place Apartments and Hotel Indigo, has four new buildings under construction or in the planning stage.

The tenant line-up includes Rustic Cork Wine Bar, Fisherman Jack’s restaurant, South Fork Bakery and Lazy Boy Brewing. The district also includes a new spa, Anisoptera Spa, which announced its residency last month. Those venues are expected to open next year.

Covington Cellars | Two Vintners will occupy one of three new buildings to be built between Port Gardner Landing and Marina Village. It will become part of the port’s “wine walk” expected to feature a mix of wineries, breweries and distilleries between Fisherman’s Harbor and Marina Village. The wine walk is anticipated to get underway in 2024, port officials said.
