River Run Apartments Scheduled to Begin Construction Next Week

Construction of the proposed River Run Apartments is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, September 17th. The 5.90-acre site is located at the northeast corner of the 436th Avenue SE and SE 136th Street intersection near I-90 Exit 32. 

Following clearing, grading, and construction of utility infrastructure, the project consists of 11 apartment buildings and 1 clubhouse / office building resulting in a total of 128 apartment units. Additionally, a roundabout at the 436th / 136th intersection and site frontage sidewalks will be constructed to connect to recently a constructed sidewalk in front of the Chinook Lumber site. Construction of the apartment project is scheduled to be completed in 2021.  This project includes affordable housing units.

The project is meeting City of North Bend’s Tree Ordinance and North Bend Municipal Code.  Trees that will be removed will either be replaced at a 3 to1 ratio or be mitigated via a fee-in-lieu tree program that uses funds to plant trees elsewhere around the City. The City’s and applicant’s arborists have visited the site many times and delineated multiple areas where existing tree groves will remain. 

The arborists are working closely with the contractor to ensure construction activities do not damage existing trees proposed to be retained. In addition to receiving building permits from the City, the project also obtained a Forest Practices Permit with Washington State Department of Natural Resources and a Construction Stormwater Pollution Prevention Permit from Washington State Department of Ecology.

If you have any questions about the project, please contact Michael Sippo, Public Works Project Manager at 425-888-7664 or email msippo@northbendwa.gov.
