River’s Edge, a new 166-unit apartment community began construction this summer in Monroe, Washington. The development will be income restricted to families and individuals earning less than 60% of the area median income (AMI) for Snohomish County. River’s Edge will include 1,2, and 3-bedroom units, designed to be energy efficient, with generous amenities, such as: community room, fitness facility, and community garden, among others. Adjacent to Wood’s Creek and Al Borlin Park, River’s Edge will enjoy superior access to those coveted public recreation areas. The 7-acre River’s Edge property is located within the City of Monroe’s Downtown Master Plan, which envisions the redevelopment of historically light-industrial land into a mix of commercial, multi-family, and office, to create a vibrant, mixed-use downtown. The River’s Edge site was home to a former auto-wrecking yard, and development of the site includes cleanup of contaminated soil.
