Snoqualmie Height Limit for Downtown Amended to 35 Feet

The Snoqualmie City Council has approved an amendment to building height limits in downtown Snoqualmie. The current height limit ordinance in the Snoqualmie Municipal Code is inconsistent in limits allowed. In some cases, it states 30 feet and in others 35 feet. The ordinance has been amended to have a consistent height limit of 35 feet.

Currently, the tallest building in downtown Snoqualmie is the Woodman Lodge, which is 33 feet in height.

Sigillo Cellars, a local Snoqualmie business, plans to construct and relocate to a new building at the corner of Railroad Ave SE and SE King Street with a total height not to exceed 35 feet from street level to the roof. The development would include wine-making operations, a wine-tasting room, dining, and a boutique hotel.

The City Council recently extended the closing date for the option agreement with Sigillo Cellars to September 30, 2018. Following closing, Sigillo Cellars will need to complete detailed architectural plans and apply for permits, including Historical Design Review Board approval. Construction would follow approval of permits.
