Closing Date Extended for Potential Sale of King Street Lot
Snoqualmie, WA – At a special meeting of the Snoqualmie City Council on September 27, 2018, Council Members voted 5-1 to authorize the Mayor to extend the closing date from September 30 to November 30 for the sale of what is commonly known as the King Street lot to King Street Properties LLC. Council Member Peggy Shepard voted no.
If the sale closes, Sigillo Cellars, a locally-owned Snoqualmie business, may construct and relocate to a new building on the King Street lot located at the northeast corner of the intersection of SE King St and Railroad Ave SE. The development would include wine-making operations, a wine-tasting room, dining, and a boutique hotel.
To move forward with the potential development, Sigillo Cellars will research the viability of adjusting the height and interior layout of the building to fit within the current 35-foot height requirements for Historic District of downtown Snoqualmie.
Following closing on the property, Sigillo Cellars would need to complete and submit detailed architectural plans and apply for permits, including Historical Design Review Board approval and a building permit.
The development plans align with the City's desire for a development that will include high-quality and appropriate design complementary to the site's relationship with the downtown Historic District, Northwest Railway Museum, Snoqualmie Depot, Railroad Park, the Snoqualmie River, and Sandy Cove Park on the banks of the river.
More information about the King Street Lot development is on the City of Snoqualmie website.
