A Waterfront Reborn: Tiscareno Associates Designs Vibrant New Community

The Sawyer, the first of two four-story apartment buildings on the Everett waterfront, has officially opened.



Tiscareno Associates is the designer of the apartment buildings which are the centerpiece of the Port of Everett’s brand-new waterfront community. The new Waterfront Place, a sixty-five acre major redevelopment project, now welcomes residents and visitors alike to a recognizably Northwest experience. The buildings and esplanade will frame a waterfront living and lifestyle in an established location. Included in the overall project will be 15 public gathering places, a waterfront hotel, numerous restaurants, a fish and farmer’s market, and 662,000 sq. ft. of craft businesses, retail, and marine sales and services. All of this will be situated with gorgeous views of the water and mountains.


The residents of the Waterfront Place will occupy up to 270 apartments with the architectural design reflecting a blend of industrial maritime and Northwest contemporary influences.

Each building has its own character and offering, while both will emphasize the walkability of the area and to the water. One will feature a marine-inspired encounter, with views as a primary focus though the extensive use of large windows, decks, patios, and rooftop terraces with lounge seating. The other building blends two historical aspects of Everett’s history, timber and industry, through the use of weatherized, authentic materials and warm woods inside and out to emphasize a more loft-like experience, encouraging light into the units while emulating the shingle-mill and industrial waterfront past of Everett.


The project team includes Exxel Pacific, DCI Engineers, GeoEngineers, Rushing, Ecotope, CPH Consultants, and Brumbaugh & Associates.
