East Bay District Overview
Located on downtown Olympia’s waterfront, East Bay is a redeveloped and revitalized area that formerly served industrial uses. It is home to the Hands on Children’s Museum and the East Bay Public Plaza and the LOTT Clean Water Alliance and Water Education Center. The district is a result of a public partnership of the Port of Olympia, City of Olympia, LOTT Clean Water Alliance and Hands on Children’s Museum, as well as a close working relationship with the Washington Dept. of Ecology. The East Bay District consists of 9 parcels and totals 13.3 acres.
Market District Overview
In the heart of downtown Olympia, the Market District is 17 acres of vibrant development for commercial and retail uses. It is home to the second largest farmers market in Washington State, fine dining, a wholesale coffee roaster, premier office and retail space, and the Port Plaza.
The district was created to provide a transition from the Marine Terminal operations to the downtown corridor, and to offer public waterfront access. This signature district is an example of a highly successful investment that has created significant economic opportunity and public pride.
