Thursday 5/2 at 7pm at Shoreline City Hall
17500 Midvale Avenue North
On Agenda: Shoreline Place
Planning Commission working session on Development Agreement
ROIC, partial owner of adjacent properties to Shoreline Place (formerly Aurora Square) which includes the Central Market property, will be speaking at City of Shoreline Planning Commission at City Hall on Thursday, 5/2 at 7pm regarding several concerns about the Shoreline Place development: (as emailed to HTNA on Monday April 29, 2019 ).  
  • The Sears building is likely to sit as it is for the foreseeable future 
  • Plan calls for 35% more apartments and far less retail than originally envisioned, effectively turning a mall into residential development
  • The promised public open space is only available if the City Council allows taller apartment buildings... and several more comments.
Response from Shoreline Place regarding ROIC concerns and comments. 
Planning Commission May 2 agenda includes a link to the Shoreline Place Development Agreement.
