Crews continue the build the foundation of Marquee on Meeker, a 24-building, 20-acre, mixed-use project offering nearly 500 apartments,

Auburn-based Landmark Development Group and HAL Real Estate are constructing the project on the former Riverbend par 3 golf course property along the Green River they bought from the city of Kent for $10.5 million. The City Council voted to sell the property to eliminate the Riverbend Golf Complex fund’s debt of about $4 million and spend about $6 million to improve the 18-hole course across the street from the former par 3 course.

Twenty-one three-story residential buildings and two six-story mixed-use buildings with 12,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor will be constructed in two phases and serve as a new western gateway to the city at 2030 W. Meeker St.
