Shoreline Place

In a newsletter blast, Merlone Geier responded to the concerns voiced by their minority partner in Shoreline Place (Sears), ROIC.

They begin with an explanation of what will happen at Thursday's Planning Commission meeting.

This Thursday, the Shoreline Place team will present to the Shoreline Planning Commission at a workshop on the project Development Agreement.
The DA between Merlone Geier Partners and the City of Shoreline sets the framework for the phased site plan implementation, solidifying a framework for certain amenities important to the City and community. It doesn’t get into the detail of specific building design or construction plans – those pieces come later when we get approval for each phase of the project. Learn more and view renderings and the latest site plan video at

Then they respond to the ROIC memo (previously published)

We’ve been working with them (ROIC) since 2017 and look forward to continuing to work with all adjacent property owners in the shopping center and interested members of the community as we continue planning for Shoreline Place. 
In the meantime, rest assured we have no intention of negatively impacting the adjacent property owners or businesses – especially Central Market – including providing adequate parking and preserving the ability for loading and deliveries. As we work towards commencing construction we will continue those coordination efforts with adjacent property owners and will keep you all in the loop before we submit for any construction permits. If you have any questions about our process you can always reach us at

They list the community outreach they have done, including a survey, two videos, and social media, then list future outreach and meetings.

We’ll be at the Shoreline Arts Festival in June and at the Shoreline Farmer’s Market a couple of times through the summer. We also encourage you to attend several City meetings and hearings regarding Shoreline Place this spring and summer: 
  • May 2 – Planning Commission working session on Development Agreement
  • May 16 – Planning Commission public hearing on Development Agreement
  • June 17 - City Council working session on Development Agreement
  • July 22 – City Council public hearing on Development Agreement
*All meetings are held at 7pm at Shoreline City Hall; meeting dates, time, and location are subject to change – visit to view agendas in advance and confirm meeting logistics.
