The City approved the Downtown Lake Stevens Subarea Plan in July 2018 to revitalize the central city core, establish a community-gathering place for residents and visitors and achieve economic vitality as a regional draw. It is requesting a letter of interest (LOI) from interested investors to purchase and develop a surplus city property, an approximate 18,450 square foot parcel that fronts Mill Spur and Main Street, at 1800 Main Street, in North Cove Park.
The City desires to see a mixed-use building with active first-floor tenants and residences above or a mix of office and residences.
Responses to the request for an LOI will be evaluated, based on the ability of the developer to meet the Lake Stevens’ desired outcome in a reasonable timeframe and ability to purchase the property. The City reserves the right to interview interested developers or investors. The selected developer will be asked to enter into a development agreement and execute a purchase and sale agreement. The development agreement will cover desired land uses, timelines and infrastructure costs. Final approval of an agreement will rest with the City Council.
