Kirkland Parkplace Redux: Will they get it right this time?
Kirkland Parkplace has a new developer with a new plan. As you may recall, the previous developer, Touchstone, fought for and eventually won concessions from the city for 1.7 million square feet of office space plus retail, a new QFC, gymnasium and hotel. Many in our community approved of the plans but a vocal minority opposed the development. Among the many complaints were parking utilization, traffic impacts and a design which called for eight story office buildings.
