There couldn’t be a better name for MainStreet Property Group’s new apartment and loft complex than The Junction. Located in Bothell, the building will feature 130 homes and  25,000 square feet of commercial real estate for lease.

This will be MainStreet’s third structure under construction in the heart of downtown Bothell. The building will be adjacent to MainStreet’s previous Bothell project, Six Oaks, and just down the street from another MainStreet property, The (104).

“We believe in Bothell,” said Katie Cartwright, vice president of sales and marketing for MainStreet. Kelly Price, President of the company resounded that sentiment at the groundbreaking stating, “Bothell has an incredible community, pride, and a lot of support.”

MainStreet is one of the large catalysts behind rapid growth in Bothell. Previously, the city was ripe for taking advantage of the untapped potential for more residents to flock there.

The Junction, which just broke ground Wednesday morning, is a cross-section between the major surrounding areas, making Bothell the up-and-coming premier destination for not only population growth but increased business opportunities.

Conveniently close to Bellevue, Kirkland, Seattle, Redmond, and Woodinville, Bothell allows for easy access to the Eastside’s large number of employment opportunities.

Since the announcement of the new building site, Price mentioned that MainStreet receives multiple calls a week inquiring about leasing the commercial area that The Junction offers. With more businesses coming into Bothell, more productivity is sure to follow.

MainStreet is no stranger to developing in undervalued areas. The company’s portfolio clearly shows a trend of building where commercial and residential real estate are not as prevalent. It recently started simultaneously on  adjacent structures in centrally located Redmond, The Heron Lofts + Flats and The Carter. MainStreet also has developed in Kenmore and Kirkland, taking advantage of the growth opportunities in those areas.
