MainStreet Property Group is proposing a new sit-down restaurant and office space on the parcel adjacent to and at the west end of the Kenmore Town Square.

MainStreet is also proposing a mixed-use building between the LINQ Lofts + Flats and the Hangar, with street-level commercial along 68th Avenue Northeast and residential units above. This proposed building will include a parking garage on the lower level (below 68th Avenue Northeast).

MainStreet will host an open house for the public from 6-7 p.m. on Monday at Kenmore City Hall, 18120 68th Ave. N.E.

The open house will feature drawings and schematics of the proposed restaurant/office building as well as the proposed mixed-use building. Representatives from both MainStreet and the City of Kenmore will be there to answer questions and take in comments.

At its 7 p.m. meeting on Monday, the Kenmore City Council will receive an update on MainStreet’s proposed new downtown buildings. To view the report for the meeting, click here. City council action is neither expected nor required because MainStreet’s proposal is expected to meet existing code requirements.

In order to obtain approval to construct these proposed new buildings, MainStreet will need to meet city code requirements, including parking regulations. A parking study will be required.

If MainStreet obtains permit approval, construction on the restaurant/office building is expected to begin late fall. If all goes well, the restaurant could be open for business as soon as late summer 2018.

The construction timeline for the proposed mixed-use building along 68th Avenue Northeast has not yet been established.

For more information, contact City of Kenmore development services director Bryan Hampson at (425) 398-8900 or bhampson@kenmorewa.gov or MainStreet senior vice president of development Kim Faust at (425) 298-0240 or kfaust@mspgroupll.com.

Kenmore’s downtown revitalization is well underway, with new private sector investment in what was formerly known as Kenmore Village, approaching $100 million since 2014. The LINQ building is nearing completion, with EvergreenHealth Primary Care, including seven-day-a-week urgent care, to open this fall.

The Kenmore Town Square is complete, and the new Hangar community building is expected to open in August after Diva Espresso completes their interior tenant improvements. A grand opening celebration for the Town Square and Hangar is scheduled from 5-9 p.m. on Aug. 26.
