A Woodinville-based general contractor recently acquired five parcels of undeveloped land in Mountlake Terrace.
Last week, on Tuesday, January 30th, five parcels of vacant land in Mountlake Terrace totaling roughly 15 acres sold for $13 million, Snohomish County records show. The parcels were acquired by Woodinville, Washington-based Sierra Construction Company Inc., a general contractor that provides a variety of construction services. The seller of the parcels was Triad Development Inc., a Seattle-based real estate developer.
Neither the buyer nor the seller responded to calls for comment in time for the publishing of this story.
The five parcels comprise 15.22 acres of vacant land; public records designate the property category as “land and improvements.” The largest of the parcels, a 9.75-acre piece of land, is located at 6004 237th St. SW in Mountlake Terrace.
The five-parcel property is less than a mile from Mountlake Terrace, roughly three-and-a-half to the south of Lynnwood and four miles to the north of Kenmore. Additionally, the property is approximately one mile from access to Interstate-5 and about three miles from Washington State Route 99.
It is not clear what plans Sierra Construction has for the property, although no project lans have yet been filed with the city.
