The sound of construction can be heard throughout Mountlake Terrace as a number business and residential projects are taking shape in the city.
All 14 townhomes at Brook Glen, a new development nearing completion at 23811 Cedar Way, have been sold according to seller Landsverk Homes.
While developers give a range of responses when asked about their experiences with the City of Mountlake Terrace for building permit applications and meeting code requirements, officials from Landsverk give the City high marks.
“Our experience in building this development in Mountlake Terrace was wonderful,” said Duane Landsverk, owner of Landsverk Quality Homes. “The city staff were easy to work with and timely in their response. We’re seeking projects in Mountlake Terrace because of the great working relationships with city staff, as well as the community.”
The Cedar Cottage development, 24226-52nd Ave. W., is ready to begin construction on the housing units. Final permits were issued for nine cottage houses, one carriage house and two community garages.
RYCO, 6810-220th St. S.W., has contacted the city about beginning a renovation to enlarge and rearrange its warehouse building. RYCO specializes in manufacturing seafood-processing machinery, and its machines are used throughout North America, Canada, Russia, Chile and Norway. This will be the second expansion for RYCO in Mountlake Terrace.
The new Ambulatory Surgery Center at Urology Northwest, 6005-244th St. S.W. next to Office Depot and Cinebarre, was recently issued a certificate of occupancy by city officials.
Construction continues on 12 townhomes located at 23408 and 23410-54th Ave. W.; no completion date has been announced for the project.
