City Hall and City Center
The City Center project is designed to demonstrate the mixed-use market in Bothell, and includes a variety of uses appropriate for its location in the heart of the City. As such, the City Hall building serves as a community gathering place anchoring the municipal campus which also includes the Police Department and Municipal Court building.
The entire block comprises City Center, and the City Hall building will be the first to emerge on the site in 2013, with completion anticipated after 18 months. The site is undergoing pre-construction preparations through demolition and utilities activities in 2012.
The block is designed to create visual and pedestrian connections between key activity centers in downtown through civic and retail plazas activated with landscape and hardscape features and special festival-oriented uses.
The site is adjacent to the future transit-friendly 185th Street Connector, which connects downtown to the region through major METRO, Sound Transit and Community Transit routes. City Hall is 70 percent designed and will be a LEED Gold structure of approximately 50,000 square feet.
