Everett Riverfront Development

Everett, Washington

The City of Everett, in a joint development agreement with a private developer, selected MacLeod Reckord to develop the master plan for the public amenities portion of a planned mixed-use commercial and residential development on a 200-acre brownfield site along the Snohomish River. The project is a model for effective stormwater management and wetland enhancement of a highly disturbed landscape. With an extension of the regional Snohomish Riverfront Trail, street improvements to link with a new transit facility, and creation of a signature park that serves as a destination and focal point for the new community, these public amenities complement and integrate with adjacent commercial and residential development. The long-term vision for this new lifestyle community incorporates multi-modal transportation and recreation into the fabric of the residential and commercial development. The master plan and phased development strategy has provided the City with valuable guidance in the restoration of trail, wetlands, shoreline, and park.
