Developer to present plans for 150 apartments on Northwest Ave. at Bellingham meeting

The developer of a proposed 150-unit apartment building at Northwest Avenue and Sterling Drive will give a public presentation on the project at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 5.

The public is invited to give comments and ask questions at the meeting, at Windermere Real Estate, 515 W. Bakerview Road.

The apartments would be built on a mostly open five-acre lot at 3928 Northwest Ave. Amenities will include courtyard gardens and a nearly 3,000-square-foot fitness center.

“This particular project is going to have covered parking — over 150 parking spaces — and a parking garage, which is really upscale,” said developer Ken Kester of Puget Sound Shelter Resources, Inc.

“I’ve been in business since 1976,” said Kester, who lives in Bellingham. “I’ve done a lot of developments. The projects I normally do are upscale.”
