Port of Everett hosting annual open house after pandemic hiatus

Also, Rustic Cork Wine Bar plans to open a second shop at Fisherman’s Harbor — the latest addition to the port’s “wine walk.”

Everett

EVERETT — The Port of Everett will hold an in-person open house from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday.

It’s the first time the event has been held in person since 2019. All are invited to attend.

The annual Waterfront Place Community Open House will be held at Pacific Rim Plaza, located on the south side of Hotel Indigo at 1028 13th Street in Everett.

Visitors can learn about the latest happenings at Waterfront Place, the port’s mixed-use development at the Everett waterfront.

Project developers will be on hand to chat about current and future projects.

Visitors can take a peek at the construction progress on the port’s new “restaurant row,” hear about new retail developments including a “wine walk” with regional tasting rooms, and learn about the re-development of the historic Weyerhaeuser Building.

The port recently announced Rustic Cork Wine Bar, based in Lake Stevens, is expanding to Waterfront Place. It will be located at Fisherman’s Harbor, next to the new Waterfront Place Apartments and Hotel Indigo. The wine bar will share the retail landscape with the new Fisherman Jack’s restaurant and South Fork Baking Co. Both are now under construction and expected to open in late 2022.

Rustic Cork’s owner Kelsey Olson opened the Lake Stevens wine bar in 2020, offering Washington wines by the glass or bottle. The new location will be part of the “wine walk,” expected to feature a mix of wineries, breweries and distilleries between Fisherman’s Harbor and Marina Village.
