SEQUIM — Vacant acreage at the interchange of Sequim Avenue and U.S. Highway 101 could be site of a large shopping center, a real estate sales agent says.
The agent, who represents owners of other potential sites for large chain retailers is protesting to City Hall the proposed rezoning of 21 acres of the property.
Paul Burgess, an agent for Windermere Real Estate Sequim, says rezoning the land owned by Burrowes Properties LLC will lead to development of a regional shopping center on the north side of U.S. 101 near Sequim Avenue.
Mark Burrowes of Burrowes Properties LLC wants the property rezoned from CII to CIII. A CIII designation allows construction of larger scale retail stores, shopping centers to serve retail clientele and specialty stores.
Burrowes said the rezoning would give all of his property — including an adjacent 51 acres — the same zone, but added that he didn’t have specific plans for the property.
