If you live in the Snoqualmie Ridge neighborhood of Deer Park, or if you frequently drive by its entrance on the corner of Snoqualmie Parkway and Swenson Drive, you might be wondering what construction is commencing on this property.
This corner land parcel has been surveyed and taped off over the past couple of weeks. Today, August 17th, a small bobcat-type bulldozer entered the roped off area in what appears to be the beginning the construction prep/land clearing part of the project. But don’t worry, signs on the property state some of the land is designated wetlands, so most likely not all trees will be cleared for construction.
A city information request turned up that a 5,000 square foot commercial building for the Morning Star Montessori School is slated for this parcel of land. According to the owners, the deal closed just last Friday and construction will begin on August 20th. The school currently operates in the Snoqualmie Ridge Heights neighborhood. They hope to be operating out of their new building by January.
This story will be updated as new information is gathered.
