The new $187.3 million Mukilteo multimodal ferry terminal, at 910 First St, is Washington State Ferries’ first new terminal in 40 years.
The terminal has many green features and a tribal-influenced design. It has more space for vehicle holding and separates pedestrian and vehicle boarding with an overhead walkway.
The centerpiece is its two-story passenger building with elements of a longhouse in a 30-by-100-foot footprint, done in collaboration with seven Coast Salish tribes. It is clad in cedar siding and has large glass windows facing Puget Sound. Elevators at the east and west ends lead to a linear promenade at the upper level, from which entries to the ticketing and waiting area are plainly visible.
The project was designed to LEED gold standards, with solar panels, rainwater harvesting, natural ventilation, radiant floor heat, stormwater treatment, pervious concrete and rain gardens. The roof has 84 cross-laminated timber panels supported by glulam beams.
Tribal cultural motifs created by local Native American artists are displayed throughout the building.
