PORT OF VANCOUVER
Location: Vancouver, Washington
Type: Commercial, Public
Graham Baba Architects is at work on the Phase 1 Study, Conceptual Design and Planning for the Port of Vancouver USA’s Terminal 1 Market building, the Port’s original marine terminal on the Columbia River near downtown Vancouver. An approximately 30,000-square-foot public market is envisioned and will provide market stalls for locally-sourced produce and gifts, as well as space for restaurants, craft breweries and regional wineries, and day table and booth opportunities. A visual history of the Port and Vancouver waterfront is also expected to be included. Terminal 1 was originally developed in the 1920s as a partnership project between the Port of Vancouver USA and the City of Vancouver to provide waterfront warehouse facilities. The redevelopment of Terminal 1 is part of a larger, ten-acre multi-phased, multi-building development that is slated to include green space for public activities, an amphitheater, bike and walking trails, parking, a public dock for pleasure boats, and a 160-room lifestyle hotel that will feature a rooftop bar. The five-mile-long Waterfront Renaissance Trail, which is adjacent to the market site, connects Esther Short Park in downtown Vancouver with Wintler Community Park.
