A new housing project in the Bel-Red corridor has entered the final stages of permitting, and looks to begin construction in the first quarter of 2016.
The Bel-Red Road Townhomes will have 12 units on the 1.69-acre lot, which is backed up against Kelsey Creek on the south side of Bel-Red Road. Between 24 and 48 residents are expected.
There is no current development on the property, 13605 Northeast Bel-Red Road, and it remains a copse of shady trees bordered by Northeast 14th Street on its southern edge and Kelsey Creek to the east.
Surrounding properties are commercial and multi-family residential.
GIS Development submitted the applications for design review approval and a critical areas land use permit.
Planned construction would go for about 10 months, ending some time in late 2016 or early 2017 according to the application.
No construction or grading is planned within Kelsey Creek’s floodplain.
A public meeting about the proposed project will be held 7 p.m. Oct. 28. at Bellevue City Hall.
