There’s nothing like a waterfront master plan for generating competing demands: the public wants access, the port wants jobs, the developers want prime parcels. Everyone wants sustainability. And don’t forget about fostering a sense of place.
The key is balance of course, and achieving it is all about process: clear guiding principles, skillful communication, heroic community engagement, painstaking synthesis, and knowledge of the small moments that make big, mixed-use projects tick. Thus, the master plan of Everett’s North Marina Harbor Basin was brought into being.
The mixed-use master plan for the 47-acre site focuses on commercial/retail/office spaces, marine retail spaces, multi-family housing, and two hotels.
