The City of Mill Creek is evaluating a new East Gateway Urban Village development proposal which was received on March 23, 2018.
The proposed mixed-use development is comprised of ten buildings on a 17-acre site. The buildings will house retail businesses, medical offices, and multi-family apartments.
According to the City of Mill Creek, “Access to the site will be a new public road connection to 132nd Street SE (SR 96) at the signalized intersection at 39th Avenue SE.”
The developer submitted the following project summary:
“The proposed project will combine the two existing parcels with the intent of creating a mixed-use site in the East Gateway Urban Village.
The site will include 356 apartment units, and 26 live/work units totaling approximately 344,720 square feet.
Additionally, there will be approximately 68,600 square feet of retail space and 16,600 square feet of medical offices.
This development proposes a total of 1,119 parking stalls (472 surface spaces and 647 spaces in parking garages).”
After a preliminary review, Mill Creek planners determined the development proposal was complete and on April 20th they told the developer a decision on the application would be made on or before August 18th.
Preliminary public comments on the development application must be submitted to the city by April 30th.
According to the Mill Creek City Council’s planning calendar, they will discuss this development proposal at their regular May 1st meeting.
