BSRE, the owners of Point Wells, are holding a public meeting on January 27 in Shoreline prior to submitting their application for permits to Snohomish County, which has jurisdiction over the site.

Snohomish County- BSRE Point Wells, LP, developer of the proposed urban center at Point Wells, will hold a Pre-Application Neighborhood Meeting on Thursday, January 27, 2011 in the Shoreline Conference Center's Auditorium. BSRE Point Wells will share information about the proposed mixed use project and is seeking additional public comment in preparation of its project application in accordance with the Snohomish County Urban Center Development Code.

The Shoreline Conference Center is located at 18560 1st Avenue NE in the City of Shoreline.

A moderator will facilitate question and answer session to follow, with written questions submitted by the public at the event or in advance at their website.

Point Wells is located on Puget Sound in the Southwest corner of unincorporated Snohomish County. BSRE Point Wells owns the 61-acre site, which currently hosts the Richmond Beach Asphalt Plant and Marine Fuel Terminal operated by Paramount Petroleum Corporation. The developer is proposing a transformation of the property into the Point Wells Urban Center--a showcase of mixed-use residential development with restored natural habitats, public open space and beach, LEED-certified sustainable architecture and transit-friendly features.

Development of the project, following an EIS process and site remediation, is expected to take place in phases over 15-20 years. BSRE Point Wells is working with the internationally-recognized architecture firm of Perkins+Will to develop initial design concepts for the site. Perkins+Will principal Peter Busby will share new information and visuals on the conceptual design process at the neighborhood meeting. He'll be joined by Peter Walker, principal of awarding-winning PWP Landscape Architecture, Victor Salemann of DEA Traffic Engineering and other key project team members.

Presentations will include preliminary conceptual layout and design; the proposed mix of land uses; proposed building heights and floor area ratio; and public open space and access considerations.

Presentations will also include conceptual landscape and habitat restoration plans; planned remediation of the site; conceptual sustainability features; public use features and amenities planned; traffic analyses planning to date and proposed transit features.

BSRE Point Wells has initiated prior community gatherings and briefings, including an open house held July 27 at the Edmonds Conference Center and another September 23 at the Shoreline Conference Center.

BSRE Point Wells is affiliated with Blue Square Real Estate Ltd., a major developer of real estate. It is a holding of the Alon Group, a company operating in the real estate, energy and retail sectors.
