Shilshole Bay Marina redevelopment
Shilshole Bay Marina provides monthly moorage for 1,500 sailboats and powerboats, guest moorage for more than 100 boats and dry moorage for 80 vessels. It is also home to a large commercial charter/tour and fishing fleet.
The Port of Seattle is replacing 22 docks and piers at the marina, along with replacing and expanding the sailing center at the north end, expanding its dry boat moorage on land, and replacing six service buildings for restrooms, showers, laundry and storage. The port is also replacing the administration building with marina-related office space and providing an area for private development of a restaurant. New public areas, landscaping and enhanced parking are included.
A key challenge of the work is removing more than 1,000 creosote-treated wood piles from the marine environment, replacing them with steel piles, and extending floating docks farther west within the main marina.
