206 apartments proposed near Arlington industrial center

The first land-use applications have been submitted. The plan shows units with up to three bedrooms.

ARLINGTON — Developers planning a large apartment and retail complex near the Arlington Airport have taken another big step toward pursuing the project.

Last week they submitted land-use applications to build 206 apartment units and about 6,300 square feet of retail space at a well-traveled intersection leading into the city.

The apartments could someday be built on the border of Arlington’s growing industrial center.

The city has found that the proposed development would not have an adverse effect on the environment, with mitigation. Because of that, an environmental impact statement is not required, according to a notice of application.

The city is accepting public comment on the project until July 26.

The complex would sprout up on nearly 9 acres at the northeast corner of 172nd Street and 67th Avenue.

As planned, the building would be three stories with 128 one-bedroom units, 44 two-bedroom units and 34 three-bedroom units. It would include a gym, pool and community room. The project also includes trails, a garden, a playground and a dog walking area.

Rent is estimated to cost between $1,700 and $2,200 per month, city spokeswoman Kristin Banfield has said previously.

If the apartments are built as proposed, a portion of Centennial Trail along 67th Avenue would need to be altered.

The project has been called Centennial Park, not to be confused with an actual downtown park with the same name.

The possible location is in a now-empty field. It’s near the former small town of Edgecomb, where there used to be a general store and a house made from a giant tree stump. Shops, homes and railroad tracks are nearby.

Those who would like to send comment to the city or learn more can do so by calling 360-403-3551, or visiting 18204 59th Avenue NE.
