Town Center now with MGP property

Merlone Geier Partners (MGP) hosted a town hall last week in Lake Forest Park to discuss conceptual plans for a potential Town Center redevelopment.

MGP owns the commercial buildings at Town Center, including the bank and office building. They do not own the land or building with City Hall, Starbucks, or Windermere.

Sound Transit is planning a major bus rapid transit hub there and would like to build a multi-story parking garage.

MGP said that they "hope they can take a more active role in shaping the future of our property as we strike a balance with various stakeholder demands."

More than 100 people joined the town hall.

For those who couldn’t attend, MGP is putting the materials online on their website

Part 1 of 2  has been posted here. It recaps the conceptual plans from the town hall PowerPoint presentation. Part 2 will include a video to be posted in the coming weeks. 

The public is being involved very early in the process. In the conceptual plans, nothing is off the table. Retail, residential, parking, with some designs using all the land, and others fitting themselves around City Hall. Combinations of all the above abound.
