VANCOUVER, Wash. – The Port of Vancouver USA’s Terminal 1 project has hit a new milestone with the launch of www.discoverterminal1.com.
Terminal 1 is the port’s original marine terminal and signature waterfront redevelopment project. The location, right on the Columbia River immediately west of the I-5 bridge, welcomes visitors to the community and represents the area’s rich history and culture. Full build out of the site will include the AC Hotel by Marriott, office and retail space, public art, outdoor gathering areas, walking trails, and a public marketplace featuring local artisans, fresh foods and restaurants
The website’s initial focus is to provide background information and status updates on the development’s progress. Features include Terminal 1’s history, overall timeline and funding partners, commitment to sustainable development, key partners, and upcoming events.
“We’ve made a lot of headway on Terminal 1 in the past year,” said Jonathan Eder, Executive Project Sponsor. “The AC Hotel by Marriott broke ground, the Vancouver Landing amphitheater planning is complete, and the design has been released for the northern portion of the site. We’re excited to have the website available for the public and our partners to track the project’s ongoing progress.”
As the gateway into both Vancouver and Washington State, Terminal 1 will provide a seamless connection along the Vancouver waterfront, and offer a unique experience for the community and visitors alike. The port’s goal with the project is to enhance economic development in our region, increase public access to the waterfront and complement other developments by the City of Vancouver and Columbia Waterfront LLC.
