UPDATED: EvergreenHealth public hospital signs a 15-year, $14,421,457 lease for commercial space in Kenmore

At an October 16, 2015 groundbreaking ceremony the MainStreet Property Group LLC revealed their vision for a new mixed-use project across from City Hall in Kenmore. The LINQ at Spencer Square will feature 94 modern residential flats and lofts, along with approximately 20,000 square feet of commercial space leased to Kirkland-based EvergreenHealth.  

EvergreenHealth public hospital will pay cash on a 15-year, $14,421,457 lease for the commercial space.  

EvergreenHealth’s plan for the space will serve as gateway for patients to gain access to an integrated network of primary, specialty, urgent, and emergency care services. When the building opens, EvergreenHealth will move its Kenmore primary care practice from its current location to the LINQ, increasing the practice’s footprint and adding more capacity for specialty care.

EvergreenHealth taxes residents $.2681 per assessed value.  The hospital collects over $15,822,629 annual levy taxes from over 400,000 residents and 155,000 taxpayers.
