With the groundbreaking on June 19 of the new Woodinville civic campus, there is much anticipation about what will fill the space. Located at 17401 133rd Ave NE, the goal of the new campus is to serve as a central community gathering place that enhances the existing Woodinville character and charm. The project will include:
Schoolhouse: Restored schoolhouse as a historic landmark building and new retail opportunities on the first and second floors
Recreation: Renovation of 8,000 square feet of the existing YMCA, as well as the addition of 8,500 square feet of childcare space, accommodating up to 120 children
Retail: Addition of 20,000 square feet of proposed retail, restaurant and commercial space. This will include “Wine Walk Row”, which will feature up to eleven wine tasting spaces along a highly-designed pedestrian east-west cross project featuring grand entrance, outdoor seating areas, extensive lighting, landscaping and public art.
Residential: Creation of 260-275 multifamily residential units across two buildings, named The Class and The Chalk.
Open Space and Market Street: Addition of approximately 40,000 square feet of public open space including a Market street promenade that will be used for City events. This area will also include outdoor dining and seating, a chalkboard wall and game areas, public art and field-viewing spaces.
“When MainStreet was selected as development partner for this project, we knew we needed to design an iconic new place within the City with the old Schoolhouse as it’s heart-beat. The Schoolhouse District is a transformative project for Woodinville and we are excited to get moving with construction activities,” said MainStreet Property Group President Kelly Price.
Built in 1909, Woodinville’s historic Schoolhouse No. 23 has stood empty for more than a decade. Through its restoration and additional project elements, this project will provide a destination experience with modern architecture standing side-by-side with restored repurposed buildings.
