mukilteo ferry terminal
This project relocates the existing Mukilteo ferry terminal to the site of a former tank farm site and includes a new passenger and maintenance building, a supervisor’s building, transit center and new toll booths. Removal of the tank farm pier eliminates thousands of tons of toxic creosote-treated debris from Puget Sound.
The design respects and honors the Native American tribes of Puget Sound who gave up their land to the U.S. government through The Treaty of Point Elliott which was signed on this site. The form of the terminal is based on the Coast Salish Longhouse. Solar panels, water retention basins, passive air ventilation and native vegetation speak to the native tribes respect for the land.
