NEWCASTLE, Wash. - A development with 900 apartments and townhomes and space for a restaurant, bank and shops could be built on property near Bellevue where coal was mined in the 1800s.
A developer, AvalonBay Communities, has submitted plans for a planned community in Newcastle.
The Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce reports the 53-acre site is strewn with rubble, mine tailings and the remains of a brick plant that operated on the site for 60 years until closing in 2011.
AvalonBay hopes to start work this summer and complete the development by 2018.
