Center for Wooden Boats to open North Lake Union facility next week

April 23rd, 2012 · No Comments

Next weekend, the Center for Wooden Boats (CWB) is opening their second location at North Lake Union near Gas Works Park (1475 N Northlake Place). The plan to open a new facility on a former Metro Transit property has been in the works for quite some time, and they’ve announced they’re ready to open next weekend, on Saturday, May 5.

The CWB says the new facility is a workshop and warehouse, where historic boats will be housed for restoration.  At present, the facility is land-based. However, they say they hope to build public access to the water to “complete our vision for the Northlake Community Wharf.” There will be a public showing and tour of the new facility on Saturday, May 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
