Ferry Terminals To Expand!

The Water Emergency Transportation Authority’s (WETA) has broken ground on the expansion of the ferry terminals, and we here at the Ferry Building Marketplace are thrilled! The project has been underway for a while and there is still some to go, but we are looking forward to seeing a robust ferry system return to the area.

The current expansion project area includes the lagoon, which will be filled up and turned into a fun public square!
