Last October we published a story about the possibility of a 100-unit apartment complex being developed at the corner of Snoqualmie Parkway and Swenson Drive, at the entrance to the Deer Park neighborhood, on Snoqualmie Ridge land parcel S-11.
At the time, Snoqualmie Planning Department Director, Nancy Tucker, had only had a couple of pre-application meetings regarding the potential development and had not yet received any permit applications.
Four months later and Seattle-based Evergreen Housing Development Group is moving forward with the new apartment complex. Evergreen Housing’s website states they “specialize in housing; adding value and building quality at all budget levels.”
According to Nancy Tucker the development will consist of market-rate rental apartments, but the buildings will be designed as townhomes. There will be 11 buildings in total, with 6 to 12 units occupying each.
Site construction plans (including clearing, grading, roads, and utilities) for the new apartment community called, The Woodlands, are currently under review. Building permit plans are also being review by City of Snoqualmie Planning Department.
Tucker said she expects construction to begin late spring or summer 2013.
