Affordable Housing & Early Learning Center

In 2022, the Port sold property to Mercy Housing Northwest to develop Phase 1 of the Millworks project featuring 84 units of workforce and family rental housing along with a six-classroom early childhood education center sponsored by community partner the YMCA of Whatcom County which will support around 100 kids. 

The Whatcom Community Foundation is spearheading Phase II of the Millworks project to feature another 80+ units of housing at a variety of affordable rates, a two-story local food production campus, rooftop event space and a rooftop terrace.

These projects help meet the community's vision of a vibrant, mixed-use waterfront which includes affordable housing and high-quality early learning opportunities.
