Public hearing for Northline Village set for Monday night

Lynnwood City Council will hear from residents for second time, might vote on development agreement.

LYNNWOOD — Residents will again have the opportunity to give input on the proposed Northline Village development during Monday night’s city council meeting.

The project would bring 1,370 housing units, seven-story office buildings, 170,000 square feet of retail space and 4,700 parking spots — all just a block away from the Lynnwood Link light rail station.

Council members may vote Monday night to approve the 15-year development agreement after the public hearing.

Although the agreement is for 15 years, a timeline for construction hasn’t been set and could be done in phases.

An economic recession is one factor that could stall the project.

Merlone Geier Partners, the West Coast firm behind Northline Village, has briefed the council on the development three times since June. The last meeting was during the Dec. 2 council meeting.

During last week’s meeting, Councilman George Hurst questioned whether the council had enough time to review all of the project materials before a possible vote Monday.

Currently, the 18-acre plot known as Lynnwood Square houses a Grocery Outlet, some restaurants, a defunct furniture store and Best Buy.

Proximity to the transit station, coming in 2024, isn’t the only benefit to the area.

The city center is located in an opportunity zone, a designation granted by the federal government which gives tax breaks to business investors.

Monday’s public hearing will be the second for the project. The first was held Nov. 18.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at Lynnwood City Hall, located at 19100 44th Avenue W.
