Puget Sound Energy is selling an undeveloped property off Mile Hill Drive where a substation was planned.
Realty Marketing/Northwest listed the 7.5-acre property in a fall auction catalog released last week, with sealed bids due by Nov. 15.
The sale includes portions of two long parcels stretching north off Mile Hill Drive and a smaller parcel connecting to Baby Doll Road (see inset image). The land is zoned commercial and could be developed as apartments or “entry level housing,” according to Realty Marketing/Northwest.
PSE spokesman Ray Lane said a substation was planned on the property 25 years ago.
“However, our electric load in that area is static,” Lane said. “We have no plans to construct a substation in the near future, and when we do, we don’t need that much land.”
PSE will hang onto 2 acres along Mile Hill Drive in case a substation is needed in the future.
