City seeks development proposals for Aloha Motel site and Army Street property

The City of Bellingham is asking developers to make proposals for two city-owned properties: the site of the recently condemned Aloha Motel and a site across the street from the Old Town Cafe known as the Army Street Site.

The city wants proposals from experienced developers who want to either buy or lease the properties by Dec. 18.

Both properties present opportunity for large-scale mixed-use development within the city limits.

The Army Street Site is at the corner of 315 W. Holly St. and the undeveloped Army Street. It’s a 24,000-square-foot property on a hillside between the Downtown Arts District and the future Waterfront District.

The Aloha Motel Site is a 1.51-acre parcel located at 301 and 315 N. Samish Way, next to the Sehome neighborhood and beneath the 180-acre Sehome Arboretum.

The request for proposals and more information is on the city’s website.
