The Tukwila City Council will consider Monday night a proposed deal to sell a portion of the city's Tukwila Village property for $500,000 to the King County Library System to build a 10,000-square-foot library.
Staff and from the city and King County Library System reached a proposed deal that the council will consider at a Special Meeting following the Committee of the Whole Meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. Monday.
The property is at the northeast corner of the intersection of Tukwila International Boulevard and South 144th Street.
The overall project covers 6 acres of city-owned property. The city hopes to turn the area into a mixed use development that will include a library, apartments, a neighborhood police resource center, retail, restaurants, public meeting space and an outdoor plaza.
Tukwila Village Development Associates is the developer of the proposed Tukwila Village.
