Topgolf has officially marked a location in Renton and offered an application to city planners.

A land-use notice has gone up at 745 Park Ave. N., indicating the spot for a new 14-acre Topgolf, a high-tech golf driving range facility. The land-use notice states construction is expected to be complete in 2021.

The location will be a full-size range, which includes climate-controlled hitting bays, a physical range and technology that shows the flight path of golf shots. Preliminary site plans show 102 hitting bays in the driving range and 464 parking stalls.

Preliminary site plans show a mixed-use parcel to be incorporated in the development, which is in an empty parcel, across the from LA Fitness at the Landing and Boeing facilities. The Boeing facility on that block will remain, from the look of the site plan.

Topgolf applied for a location in Tacoma in 2018, and recently announced a Topgolf lounge in Kirkland. The company currently has 52 locations, according to its website, and receives over 13 million guests annually.

City officials plan to accept the project this week.
