More medical offices will open in Issaquah in the future thanks to a new agreement with Swedish Medical Center.
In a unanimous decision Nov. 18, 2013, the Issaquah City Council approved a development agreement to give Swedish predictability as it expands it campus in the years ahead, and allow the City to create a more up-to-date development framework for Issaquah Highlands.
The agreement encompasses 28.26 acres north of the existing Swedish/Issaquah campus between Northeast Blakely Drive and Northeast Discovery Drive. Swedish has signed a preliminary agreement to purchase the blocks north of the existing hospital — about 10 acres — for medical offices.
The latest milestone comes as Port Blakely Communities, master developer of Issaquah Highlands, winds down its active involvement in the urban village. Port Blakely is negotiating with landowners to complete sales of remaining property.
