The Kalakala Finds A New Home in Port Angeles?
In a press release that we mistakenly thought came from 2000, we now see that the ever-twisting and often painful saga of the once grand Kalakala, “The Worlds First Streamlined Ferry,” continues …
Select Contracts (SC) have recently completed a draft conceptual master plan for the MV Kalakala & the home port, a conceptual presentation along with a new website to promote interest in MV Kalakala and the home port that will be located within the City of Port Angeles, Washington. The MV Kalakala homeport is a private waterfront site located in a prime location in Port Angeles, ideal for the site of the famous Kalakala.
The plan is for Select Contracts to fully restore the MV Kalakala and to develop the homeport site ready for a grand summer opening in July 2012. The homeport resort will offer an unprecedented consumer experience and will include floating piers for the MV Kalakala along with a small boat marina and associated facilities, two waterfront Art Deco themed apartment buildings, an open air amphitheater and pavilion, a number of boutique retail outlets, a family entertainment facility, food and beverage outlets and numerous recreational elements.
So the marvelous old boat that
litters graces the far side of our port is leaving? Who’s optimistic this will happen as described? Anybody?
