Updated: The Port of Seattle has approved $12 million in funding to upgrade the restrooms and re-pave the parking lot at Shilshole Bay Marina.
The project includes creating three new sustainable buildings: two large facilities with restrooms, shower and laundry will be located at the south and central areas of the marina, and a smaller restroom and shower building will be located at the north end. Two of the existing structures will be repurposed into storage, and the other two will be torn down.
Here’s the map showing the new locations:
The building’s sustainable features include radiant heated floors, water saving fixtures, stormwater management and rooftop photovoltaic panel arrays on the two larger buildings. The solar panels will save an estimated 70% of the restrooms’ electrical use.
Construction is slated to begin next summer.
Steve reminds us in comments that Duke’s Chowder House is coming to Shilshole Marina in 2019, just 30 feet away from the water.
Here’s an early sketch. “It’s a dreamy spot,” founder Duke Moscrip told Eater back in May. “There aren’t many like it in the world. We hit a home run.”
