About the Riverside Business Park

The Port of Everett purchased the 85-acre Riverside Business Park from Weyerhaeuser in 1998. The property was sub-divided into nine (9) parcels, some of which have already been developed. Approximately 38 usable acres remain for development zoned for heavy to light industrial use. Over the years, the Port has improved the property with fill, roadways and utilities. The Port Commission’s goals for the property are to support jobs and tax base for the Port District. In 2007, the Port sold 5-acres of the business park to Motor Trucks International, and in 2012, the Port sold nearly 16-acres of the business park, which included a long-term lease with Allied Waste, to Snohomish County. There is currently a contract pending with Panattoni Development for approximately 10 acres and KW Projects for 16 acres. With the Latitude ground lease, the entire master plan site is under contract.
