A developer, AvalonBay Communities, has submitted plans for a planned community in Newcastle.
The Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce reported that the 53-acre site is strewn with rubble, mine tailings and the remains of a brick plant that operated on the site for 60 years until closing in 2011.
AvalonBay hopes to start work this summer and complete the development by 2018.
