Waterfront Master Plan and Development Strategy
Port of Vancouver, Washington
To the surprise of most residents and visitors, the most active, family-friendly, and sunny waterfront in the Portland metropolitan region is in Vancouver, Washington.
LCG worked with the Port of Vancouver and NBBJ Architects to complete a Master Plan for the Columbia River waterfront, secure revised development entitlements from the City of Vancouver, and recruit multiple developers and tenants, including a 150-room AC Marriott hotel, Warehouse ’23 restaurant in the historic Terminal 1 building, and mixed-use developers. The hotel is under construction and the restaurant is open for business.
The build out of the Master Plan will enable the Vancouver community to capitalize on its longstanding desire to reconnect downtown to the river, and integrate the natural environment, pedestrian and bike trails, and mixed-use development.
