A retail development project in Black Diamond entitled for up to 190,000 square feet of commercial space is moving forward while entertaining offers from investors. The property is currently advertised on the market with anchor space available, pads available for ground lease, build-to-suit and for-sale opportunities, according to a flier from First Western Properties—Tacoma, Inc. Tim Weber, Blake Weber and Don Whittles are the brokers on the property. Construction is scheduled to commence in 2024. Visconsi Companies is the project developer.
The property, called Ten Trails Retail, is a 14.5-acre site located within the larger Ten Trails development at 32607 Willow Ave. SE. As the retail core of the larger development, Ten Trails Retail is slated to feature a variety of retail uses throughout the site, according to the flier. The site will have walking trails that are designed to be intertwined with the retail space to provide seamless connections to the restaurants and retailers, which would be located just steps away from thousands of homes. Potential uses of the retail area include grocery, drugstore, daycare, restaurants, banking, coffee shops, medical, automotive, office and professional services. The flier also notes that lot sizes are flexible and drive-thru opportunities are available.
The larger development Ten Trails is a 2,200-acre, master planned community that is permitted for 6,500 homes, apartments and senior living facilities as well as new elementary, junior high and high schools. Ten Trails features miles of walking and biking trails, town center parks and other amenities. In total, so far the development has 842 homes occupied, which jumps up to 1,067 when rentals are included. According to the flier, 1,828 lots are currently committed to builders and 1,026 permits have been issued.
“Offering a slower pace of life but within minutes of major highways for fast and easy commutes, Ten Trails provides city amenities in a rural setting highlighted by a unique sense of community,” the flier states.
