A waterfront opportunity for Gig Harbor
As part of the One Harbor Point Development agreement, the Cheney Foundation seeks to dedicate the boat barn (also known as the ag or egg building), its large waterfront deck, and the associated marina to the City of Gig Harbor for use as a community asset and to increase public access to the waterfront. The boat barn property is located at 2907 Harborview Drive.
Built in 1925 as the Washington Egg & Poultry Co-op, the building and associated assets could become a significant amenity to the community, provide waterfront access and preserve a part of Gig Harbor’s heritage.
The boat barn is currently rented as commercial office space. Rental fees from that space and the marina could provide an ongoing revenue stream for the City.
