UPDATE | June 5th: The Seattle Times released a story today on the new ice arena. You can read that story HERE.
ORIGNIAL ARTICLE, April 5th
According to the City of Snoqualmie Community Development Department, former Technical Glass owner, Jeff Razwick, is partnering with Sno-King to build a two-rink, indoor ice facility on lot 5 (which he owns) in the Snoqualmie Ridge Business Park. Sno-King also has ice rinks in Kirkland and Renton.
The lot is on Douglas Street and adjacent Snoqualmie Ridge Storage and the new Church on the Ridge site where construction began last fall for COTR’s new facility.
Snoqualmie Community Development Director Mark Hofman said no formal design plans have been submitted yet for the facility, but are expected soon. His department has mapped out a timeline for project review that would lead to a July 1st groundbreaking, which is the applicant’s goal.
Hofman said via email that the architect is “furiously working on a building design and rendering.” The project requires issuance of a clear and grade permit (which would be the first submittal), civil review, stormwater review, landscape plan, mixed use consistency review I and II (design review) and building permits.
According to a department council report, the project is anticipated to obtain an occupancy certificate and the facility would open by September, 2020.
Across the street on lot 7, a clear and grade permit was issued in early March and land/site preparation work began on April 1st for a new office/warehouse building. Permit applications for the building were submitted and are currently being reviewed by the city’s Community Development Department. The building will be designed by the same architect.
Once these two buildings are complete, the Snoqualmie Ridge Business Park will be built out – roughly two decades after the first commercial building was constructed in the development.
