Property Development Centers (PDC) was planning on breaking ground today on approximately 13 acres in the Canyon Park area of Bothell where it will develop a 150,000-square-foot shopping center that will be anchored by a new Safeway supermarket. Then new center will be located at the southwest corner of 240th Street and Bothell Everett Highway.
Construction is scheduled to begin next week with an estimated completion of September 2011. The new center will be called Lakeside at Canyon Park, an upscale community of more than 4,000 existing single-family homes and apartment units.
"We are excited to begin this project and bring to the people of Bothell and the Canyon Park area the superior shopping experience, convenience and retail variety that they need and deserve," said David Zylstra, chief operating officer of PDC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Safeway Inc., in a press release.
The Safeway at Canyon Park will be more than 50,000 square feet and will feature full-service seafood, meat and deli departments, as well as a full-service bakery and a Starbucks. The store will also have expanded organic and conventional produce departments, expanded beer and wine selection and a full-service pharmacy.
"This is going to be a special store with a broad range of products and services tailored to tastes and needs of the Canyon Park community," said Safeway President Greg Sparks in a press release. "We have been serving the Bothell market continuously for nearly 60 years, and we look forward to extending that record through this important project."
In addition to the Safeway, the project will include six shop buildings with approximately 40,000 square feet of retail space.
