Bothell is moving ahead with plans for a new City Hall, a project that sat on the shelf for years while the city worked on other improvements for downtown.
Bothell City Council approved the project earlier this month, and construction is expected to begin in late July.
Vulcan Real Estate is developing the project for the city. The Miller Hull Partnership is the architect, and GLY Construction is the general contractor.
The 55,000-square-foot City Hall will be at 101st Avenue Northeast and 183rd Street. Construction will take about 15 months, according to a press release from the city.
The city picked Vulcan in 2011, but officials decided to delay the project for a few years and focus on major infrastructure projects such as shifting state Route 522 and building a boulevard along Bothell Way Northeast. City officials said they always planned to build the new City Hall when that work was done.
There is space on the block where Vulcan can build private projects.
The city reduced the size of the new City Hall and that brought the cost down to $46.8 million.
City staff today are split between City Hall, the Dawson Building, and several portables and leased spaces.
The new building will put the city's 200 employees under one roof.
