The Port of Fri­day Har­bor wraps up con­struc­tion on the new water­front build­ing locat­ed at 10 Front Street Fri­day har­bor, WA. The Port will cel­e­brate with a rib­bon-cut­ting and Grand Open­ing cer­e­mo­ny Fri­day, Octo­ber 28 at 2:00 p.m.

The build­ing replaces 1960’s con­struc­tion that was destroyed by a fire in August of 2013.

The state-of-the art build­ing required recon­struc­tion of the dete­ri­o­rat­ing sea­wall and removal of con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed soils from a for­mer fuel oper­a­tion.  The Port’s con­trac­tor Well­man & Zuck com­plet­ed the bulk of its respon­si­bil­i­ties as of mid-October.

The new build­ing hous­es San Juan Excur­sions and San Juan Safaris offer­ing whale watch tours, kayak trips and local­ly inspired appar­el. Rip­tide Cafe, fea­tur­ing Stump­town cof­fee, offers tra­di­tion­al espres­so bar eats and treats. The much antic­i­pat­ed re-open­ing of Down­rig­gers Restau­rant will take place the first part of Novem­ber.  Recent­ly, two suites with­in the water­front low­er lev­el have become avail­able to lease.

Bar­bara Mar­rett, Port Com­mis­sion Pres­i­dent, explains “We’re grate­ful that the new Spring Street Land­ing build­ing has helped trans­form our water­front. On the street lev­el, a new­ly cre­at­ed plaza invites us to linger and look out on the har­bor or pause to dine alfres­co. Below, what was for­mer­ly a park­ing lot with chain-link fenc­ing is now a love­ly water­front walk­way. New store­front spaces and restau­rant facil­i­ty with amaz­ing views add warmth and a touch of sophis­ti­ca­tion to the down­town expe­ri­ence. We are also grate­ful to our con­trac­tors, archi­tects, busi­ness­es and staff for help­ing us cre­ate some­thing beau­ti­ful from the ash­es. We are excit­ed to cut the rib­bon and share these new spaces with you!”
