Lakepointe Development

                                                            Aerial of Lakepointe and surrounding properties

The Lakepointe project is a proposal for a mixed-use development, which will be built in phases on approximately 50+ acres on Lake Washington where the Sammamish River enters the lake. The site is just east of the Kenmore Air Harbor Seaplane terminal.

Lakepointe is intended to integrate different land uses and activities in a complementary manner to minimize the conflicts and integrate the usage among residents, shoppers, vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. The mixed-use nature of this development will provide almost a mile of Lake Washington and Sammamish River channel shoreline public access.

Lakepointe is not a new proposal and has undergone significant public review since 1989. The proposed development was included in the Northshore Community Plan that was adopted in 1993 by the King County Council. A Lakepointe Citizen Task Force met for several years and worked with the developer to provide public support and extensive input into the design and implementation of the proposal.

Project Status:

The City is in discussions with the property owner regarding potential development options, including projects that may reduce the infrastructure costs.
