RENTON, WA-Harvest Partners of Dallas this week announced plans for a 69-acre urban village here that it will develop in partnership with Dallas-based Transwestern Investment Co. To be called the Landing, the $390-million project will include about 800,000 sf of retail, 900 residential units, a 140-room hotel and 57,000 sf of office space.

Harvest principal Bob Baker tells the 1.4 million-sf first phase, which is slated for a fall 2007 delivery, will include all of the residential units, about 70% of the retail and the hotel. The office space will be built above a portion of the second-phase of retail, he says.

The residential development will be high-end rental product designed such that it can eventually be sold off as condominiums. Baker says the goal is to have the development be a place where people can live, work, shop, dine and be entertained. The site is fully zoned and entitled.

Harvest Partners hired Seattle-based Callison to design the project. Callison designed Kent Station in Kent, WA, the Northgate Mall expansion in North Seattle and was recently involved in the expansion and renovation of Alderwood Mall in Lynwood, WA. SD Deacon Corp. will act as general contractor. The civil engineer is W.H. Pacific. Madison Marquette Retail Services is providing leasing services.

The Landing is being developed on a surplused portion of The Boeing Co’s Renton plant. Boeing placed a 46-acre chunk of its 280-acre plant on the market in May 2004. Transwestern Harvest Lakeshore LLC purchased the property in late 2004, along with an option for another 22 acres that it has not yet exercised.

The 46-acre parcel is bordered by Garden Avenue N. to the east, Logan Avenue N. to the northwest and N. 8th Street to the south. The land was rezoned by the city in 2003 for a mix of uses including office and retail, urban density residential and biotech lab/office.

When the Renton City Council approved the zoning changes, it committed more than $33 million in funding for infrastructure improvements that will facilitate redevelopment. The city will use tax revenues generated from redevelopment to pay off bonds sold to fund the improvements.
