This irregualr site was located on 32 acres near the intersection of Pacific Avenue and Smith Avenue. On the west, the campus site was bounded by MacDougall Avenue, on the east by Pine Street, on the north Pacific Avenue, and on the south by 35th Street.

From a total of four strong contenders, two sites emerged for the location of this new branch of the University of Washington System: one in the Everett-Stanwood area, the other in the Lake Stevens-Snohomish area. The Seattle firm, NBBJ Architects, served as the primary architectural consultant for the site selection. In 11/2007, the 32-acre transit station location in Everett was selected as the future site of a new University Washington campus to serve northern Puget Sound. Cost estimates for construction of the new campus ranged from $645-$803 million. State officials indicated that the size of the UW Bothell Campus might shrink with the construction of an Everett location. The Bothell and Everett campuses may, in fact, be consolidated to save costs, President Emmert stated on 11/15/2007. The economic collapse of 2008 and the subsequent shortfall in State of Washington revenues caused plans for the Everett Campus to be scuttled indefinitely.
