Last week held the ground breaking event for the first phase of the transit-oriented, mixed-use residential and commercial development Terrace Station in Mountlake Terrace, WA.
Attendees included the project’s management team from Sierra Construction, Mountlake Terrace elected officials and staff including Mayor Jerry Smith, MLT News and others.
The event marked the start of the development’s infrastructure. The main focus of this phase is providing utilities to future building sites, as well as constructing Gateway Boulevard, the main thoroughfare that will connect Gateway Place on the south to 236th Street on the north. The site was previously home to Evergreen Elementary and has been vacant since the school was demolished in 2010.
Breaking ground this summer, Building One is a six-story 470,000 square foot mixed-use building comprised of 258 residential units, two levels of underground parking, and 58,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor. This building is the first of three planned buildings in the Terrace Station development.
The completed development will bring 600 residential units and 80,000 square feet of commercial space to the city, all in close proximity to I-5, the Mountlake Terrace Transit Station, as well as the light rail service coming in 2024.
