A new mixed-use development and renovation of a long-standing vacant building are on tap for a section of 56th Avenue West just south of 236th Street Southwest in Mountlake Terrace.
According to City of Mountlake Terrace officials, the city has granted approval for a 48-unit, three-story residential building with 4,424 square feet of ground floor commercial space at 23713-56th Ave. W. The development will take the place of a single-family residence that currently occupies the .83-acre lot just south of the Arbor Village Apartments at 236th Street SW and 56th Avenue West.
City officials are expecting building permits for the project, tentatively called Promenade Living at Town Center, to be applied for soon.
Just a couple blocks away, applications have been submitted to the city to approve a planned renovation of the Mallory Building at 24113-56th Ave. W. Landsverk Quality Homes, currently in Lynnwood, has purchased the site and wants to renovate the 6,677- square-foot warehouse into office space, city officials said.
The Mallory Building was formally home to Professional Service Industries, an engineering consultant firm, but would need to be brought up to current city codes to be occupied again.
