PROJECT

PUD Headquarters
Site Redevelopment
In 2019, we teamed with CollinsWoerman and THG, LLC to assist the Fifth Street Redevelopment Core Team (Chelan County PUD, City of Wenatchee, Port of Chelan County, the Wenatchee Downtown Association and the Wenatchee Valley Chamber of Commerce) along with an approximately 40-member Community Advisory Group to develop a new future for the “old” Chelan Public Utility District (PUD) headquarters that aligns with market realities.

The goal was to use the opportunity of the redevelopment as a catalyst for increasing value, increasing downtown business revenues, and increasing livability in Wenatchee. Through public participation, real estate savvy, and economic and financial analysis, we assisted the Core Team to manage expectations and identify critical and desired outcomes towards achieving those goals.

The reuse and redevelopment of the Fifth Street campus is an opportunity to create a well-thought- out plan for the property that can be done in phases. The plan reflects community values and offers clear and concise choices for the Core Team. The preferred options selected were those that complemented the existing downtown businesses and connect them both physically and operationally in a manner authentic to Wenatchee.

Location/Client:  Chelan County PUD, Wenatchee, Washington.
