Favoring change for Downtown Kirkland - The McLeod Project

By
Mortgage and Lending with HOPE Lending LLC

I realize the initial reaction for most when they hear about change coming is to resist and oppose.  But let's consider all the facts and benefits The McLeod Project will bring downtown Kirkland.  Stuart McLeod owns the property that is to be redeveloped which includes Hector's south to Mixtura (Tully's to Ben & Jerry's would remain) and the parking and businesses behind there (Calabria, Sasi's Cafe).  The plan is for a 4 story mixed use building to include: retail/restaurants, office space, and an underground 500 car parking deck.  The architectural design is according to current zoning, in line with other downtown construction projects, and for the benefit of the community.

Having underground parking serving 500 vehicles that the city doesn't have to pay for or manage is a great idea. Additionally, The McLeod Project is an appealing design that also promotes a mixed use that our city needs.This will encourage a balanced growth by including the office space and attracting more retail spending. It iszoned appropriately and in line with the recent Heathman Hotel addition and senior building under construction.

Jon Regala is the City Planner on the McLeod project.  Please email him at jregala@ci.kirkland.wa.us with your support in favor of this development.

Imants - Glad you are in favor and willing to email.  Last I heard the city is trying to make him scale it back.
