Redevelopment of the current Chelan PUD Headquarters campus at Fifth Street & North Wenatchee Avenue is part of the conversation about the PUD’s new Service Center in Olds Station. Work is underway with the City of Wenatchee, the Port of Chelan and community members to come up with recommendations for what might go onto the 7.5 acres of prime real estate at the gateway to downtown Wenatchee.
On June 21, thirty community members got together for a full-day workshop with members of the CollinsWoerman redevelopment team to talk about local values, a vision for the property and even what a repurposed facility might be called. These ideas will be developed into a portfolio of sustainable, market-driven opportunities for the City, Port and PUD to consider.
In the fall, the three governmental bodies will hold an Open House to give the whole community an opportunity to consider the possibilities and recommendations for this gateway site.
It’s an exciting time to think about the potential that a developer or a team of developers, with input from community members, could create on this prime real estate. Follow the progress and give us your thoughts using the comment button on this page. Visit this page for regular updates.
