Point Wells condo proposal still lacking, examiner says

The developer trying to build more than 3,000 waterfront condos can appeal.

WOODWAY — Snohomish County’s hearing examiner stood by his June decision to deny a proposed high-rise development at Point Wells, but did make some procedural changes after the developer asked him to reconsider. 

Examiner Peter Camp issued the amended decision Friday. It addresses a proposal to build more than 3,ooo condo units on a 60-acre industrial site next to Woodway in towers reaching up to 180 feet.

In one change, Camp said BSRE Point Wells could appeal his decision to the County Council, before taking the case to Superior Court. The deadline to do that is Aug. 17.

The examiner said the proposed project still falls short of meeting code requirements. A major obstacle is access to mass transit, which is necessary to build above 90 feet. The examiner said the plans would place buildings too close to marine waters, adjoining neighborhoods and potential landslide hazards.
