Commission to consider Issaquah Highlands retail plan
April 10, 2012
Residents can offer input soon on the latest plan to build a retail complex in the Issaquah Highlands.
The plan for the proposed Grand Ridge Plaza, a highlands retail center, is scheduled to go before the Urban Village Development Commission April 17 and May 1. (The commission oversees large-scale development in the highlands and Talus.)
The proposal is the latest in a long-running effort to add more retail offerings to the hillside neighborhood.
The commission is due to consider the Grand Ridge Plaza site development permit April 17. Then, commissioners plan to hold a public hearing on the permit May 1.
The commission meets in the Council Chambers at City Hall South, 135 E. Sunset Way, at 7 p.m.
The developer, Florida-based Regency Centers, intends to transform 14 acres into shops, restaurants and parking areas. The proposal also includes a cinema and a grocery store, although the city approved both projects in separate actions.
