An indoor marijuana producer has been approved in the Richards Valley area, pending some building upgrades.

The Avalon Project’s application for a state-licensed recreational marijuana growing and processing operation at an existing warehouse at 13312 SE 30th Street passed Bellevue’s permitting process given the company will construct more parking spaces and odor control measures.

The 1.19-acre site is well over 1,000 feet away from schools, playgrounds, parks and other public places where children gather. All of Southeast 30th Street is zoned as “light industrial.” The warehouse’s previous tenant was a car service business. The building is 29,260-square feet and will reduce daily traffic to the location, according to projections.

The proposed facility will have 14 “bloom rooms,” two horticulture rooms and a nursery. It will not have customer retails sales, instead selling to retails stores.

The Avalon Project is the second marijuana-related business approved in as many weeks in bellevue, even after a council mandate limiting the growth of the cannabis industry in the city for six months.
