Two commercially-zoned buildings occupying a half-acre lot are close to completion next to the New Brookside Restaurant near the intersection of State Route 302 and 118th. The larger two-story, 3,000-square-foot structure will potentially house a consortium of four health-care professionals. They have already signed a letter of intent and made a deposit, subject to completion of the building and notice of the official zoning change from residential to Rural Neighborhood Center, a process now taking place through the county and expected to be complete by year-end.
The smaller, one-story, 2,000-square-foot building has no prospective tenants at this time; the owner hopes to attract other members of the health-care community. Across the street between the Serenity Salon building and Charboneau Excavating, a recently purchased 8-acre commercially zoned parcel is being readied for septic system installations. The owner has not indicated a specific use for the site.
Renovation of the old Wauna fire station is also nearly complete. This old building will see new life as a Seabeck Pizza establishment.
A commercial property at the intersection of SR-302 and Creviston remains unsold and unleased; plans for two potential fast-food drive-through restaurants and a coffee kiosk are still being negotiated, with no satisfactory resolution expected soon.
A 7-acre property on the corner of SR-302 and Wright-Bliss recently changed hands. The new owner has no immediate plans to begin construction and has not made a determination regarding its intended use, although potential for a gas station and convenience food store has been mentioned as one possibility.
A McDonald’s drive-through restaurant is looking at an undisclosed site on the Key Peninsula. The owner of the unnamed property specifically requested that the corporation be contacted regarding a potential purchase. After a wait of several months, McDonald’s representatives responded, and are now conducting their own research on the viability of locating a franchise here. How close or far it would be from the existing Burger King is unknown at this time.
