The Terrace Station development along northbound I-5, just north of Shoreline, broke ground at the beginning of June.

Sierra Construction Company is constructing the first phase of the transit-oriented, mixed-use residential and commercial development.

They are providing utilities to future building sites, as well as constructing Gateway Boulevard, the main thoroughfare that will connect Gateway Place on the south to 236th Street on the north. Gateway Place currently has only one road in, from 244th SW.

The Terrace Station site was previously home to Evergreen Elementary and has been vacant since the school was demolished in 2010.

Terrace Station, Building 1, is a six-story 470,000 square foot mixed-use building.

Comprised of 258 residential units, Building 1 has two levels of underground parking and 58,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor.

This building is the first of three planned buildings in the Terrace Station development.

The completed development will bring 600 residential units and 80,000 square feet of commercial space to the city, all in close proximity to I-5, the Mountlake Terrace Transit Station, as well as the light rail service coming in 2024. Building 1 is due for completion in 2020.

Lake Forest Park Montessori has notified its parents that it plans to relocate the school to the Mountlake Terrace development. Their current building on 19th NE in Shoreline has very limited parking.

"Our school will be moving to a new and very convenient location which has recently broken ground in the planned community of Terrace Station on Gateway Boulevard near I-5 and 236th Street SW in Mountlake Terrace. 
"This community is being planned to take advantage of the transit center and new light rail station projected to open there in about five years. 
"The school will be on the ground floor of the multi-use building currently under construction. The new school will provide the perfect environment for our Montessori learning experience, while being very convenient for parents and staff. (Of course, there will be plenty of parking!) 
"Since this is a brand-new development, construction will take time, and the exact date of completion has not yet been determined. We hope to be able to open early in the 2020-21 school year, and of course we will give you frequent updates when the time gets closer."
