Historic Downtown Everett YMCA May Avoid The Wrecking Ball

Drawings show plans to develop the historic five-story YMCA.

A pre-application was filed this week by a Seattle developer to put more than 200 units of housing at the site of the downtown YMCA properties in Everett, Washington. We told you in August of last year that the YMCA properties were up for sale as the “Y” prepares to move to a new facility in the 4700 block of Colby in central Everett.

According to preliminary plans (which are very much subject to change) Trent Development, Inc. plans to build a five story building with 54 units just north of the historic 1920’s YMCA building at 1717 California Street.

That would mean tearing down the current YMCA facility and putting up a new building. The historic five story building would not be torn down but would be converted to 51 housing units.


The preliminary drawing for what is now a parking lot at Everett and Rockefeller.

At the parking lot across the street at the corner of Everett Avenue and Rockefeller a ten-story, 169 unit building would be constructed with 202 parking stalls.

Trent Development, Inc is owned by Trent Mummery who is developing projects in Shoreline and Seattle.

Prior to forming Trent Development, Inc. Mummery was a partner of The Metropolitan Companies, established in 2007 and developer of several mixed use buildings in Seattle.

Again this is just a pre-application with nothing set in stone but it looks like the historic YMCA building will be saved and put to good use for many years to come.
