Rowley Properties’ eight-story hotel could be the first example of the Central Issaquah Plan in motion.
While the city pieced together the parts of its long-term vision of how central Issaquah should develop, approving the final plan late last year, it worked with the local real estate development company. Rowley Properties had an interest in redeveloping its holdings in the area and to specifically build a mixed use, extended-stay hotel near the existing Hilton Garden Inn west of SR 900.
“Rowley was gearing up and didn’t want to wait until the CIP was done,” Project Oversight Manager Christopher Wright said. It led to a great deal of cooperation between the city and Rowley Properties.
