Harbor Square on Agenda Again Tuesday at City Council Meeting

Tuesday's 7 p.m. City Council meeting will be your chance to sound off once again, as a public hearing will be held on the Planning Board's recommendation to approve the Port of Edmonds request to incorporate the Port’s Harbor Square Master Plan into the City’s Comprehensive Plan.

Both the City of Edmonds and the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce support the redevelopment of Harbor Square.

The Harbor Square Master Plan envisions a mixed-use, transit-oriented development. The mixed-use nature of the Master Plan will allow for retail, commercial, office and public uses, as well as residential housing.

The Master Plan could provide 340 to 358 residential units, 50,400 square feet of retail, 9,784 square feet of office,123,410 square feet of recreational health club uses (including tennis courts), 3.8 acres of public open space and 1,091 off-street parking spaces.

The Master Plan envisions buildings of varying heights, up to a maximum of 55 feet. Buildings up to 35 feet are proposed for the SR-104/Dayton Street intersection while buildings of 45  feet are proposed along Dayton Street (with step-back provisions for portions above 35 feet).

Five story  buildings (up to 55 feet in height) could be located toward the far southern edge of the site.
