The following photos are of three different large project sites being developed in the North Lynnwood Census-Designated Place, an area north of Lynnwood and inside Lynnwood’s urban growth area. All photos were taken on June 17, 2013.
Avalon Alderwood Urban Center – Phase I
Avalon Alderwood is an apartment project located on the southeast corner of Alderwood Mall Parkway and 164th Street Southwest, being developed by AvalonBay Communities. The project description from Snohomish County states:
“The project consists of 491 multifamily units in 10 buildings, ranging from three to six stories tall, to be constructed in two phases (367 units in phase 1 and 124 units in phase 2). A fitness center with swimming pool for residents, club house/leasing offices and detached parking garage buildings are also proposed. The site is comprised of 18.7 acres and is zoned UC (Urban Center). The project will be constructed in two phases.
Phase 1 of the project will be accessed from two driveways off of 164th Street SW (one in the middle of the property and one at the east side where an existing traffic signal is located). Phase 2 will provide an additional driveway from Alderwood Mall Parkway (at the existing traffic signal used for the Fred Meyer store across the street). An internal driveway system for vehicles is proposed within the project and pedestrian walkways are provided throughout the site. A nature trail, with access points at both Alderwood Mall Parkway and 164th Street SW, is also proposed adjacent to a Native Growth Protection Area.”
Urban Center Apartments
This apartment project is located on 16001 Ash Way, directly north of Ash Way Park & Ride. 395 one-, two-, and three-bedroom units are included. The development is designated as affordable housing, with apartments reserved for households with up to 60% of the median income. The given website on the project site sign (urbancenter.com) does not work.
