The Port of Vancouver USA’s Terminal 1 redevelopment project took home the “2024 Environmental Stewardship Award” given by the Washington Public Ports Association last Friday.

Washington’s 75 public ports are represented by the Washington Public Ports Association, which each year awards an individual port for noteworthy environmental stewardship efforts. The port’s ongoing project to reimagine its original Terminal 1 location, formerly home to the Inn at the Quay, into a mixed-use development centered around a public market notched multiple environmental sustainability achievements in 2023.

“We’re so proud of this recognition that the Port of Vancouver USA has put environmental sustainability at the center of our Terminal 1 redevelopment,” said Eric LaBrant, port commission president. “The way this project is coming to life on the Vancouver waterfront shows that sustainability is smart business.”

“The Terminal 1 redevelopment embodies the Washington Public Ports Association’s core value of environmental stewardship, where old creosote pilings were removed to make way for a new public market that will allow people to gather and businesses to thrive,” said Eric ffitch, executive director of the Washington Public Ports Association. “The Port of Vancouver USA is very deserving of our 2024 award.”
