Terrell Creek Landing project moving ahead

By Jack Kintner

After a year of planning and another year of construction, the first phase of the 12-unit Terrell Creek Landing condominiums in Birch Bay is completed and the second should be done by next month.

“It’s been a great experience,” said Gina Weigum, who developed the property immediately east of the well-known C Shop at the corner of Alderson and Birch Bay Drive.

“Our goal was to build something of quality that would last,” Weigum said, “so we put a little extra into it. We wanted everything to be top-notch.” The two halves of the project, phase one and two, each have two two-story town houses of just under 2,000 square feet and four 1,100 square foot condominiums. After getting their occupancy permit earlier this year one of the condominiums has already sold.

Working closely with her general contractor, Rosendahl-Honcoop, she picked out the colors for both the slate green and sand exterior, trimmed in white, and the beige interiors.

“I was there just about very day,” said Weigum, “working with their foreman and it went very well.” She said she added touches as they went along, a window here and an accent there. Everson artist Ed McDonald created two large frosted glass windows that can be see from the east side parking area, one of a heron a the other of a sunset.
The building includes space in between the two halves that offer eight retail spaces, some of which may be combined for up to 2,500 square feet. Two businesses are ready to move in, she said, and they’re expecting more, including a restaurant of some kind.

All the units have hardwood floors, granite countertops, gas fireplaces, stainless kitchen appliances and soaking tubs. 

The 3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath town houses have double balconies, walk-in pantries and floor to ceiling windows to take in the view and to also let in a lot of light, giving them a spacious feel.

The 2 bedroom, 2 bath single-story condominiums have see-through fireplaces connecting the breakfast nook and living room and large single balconies. Residents also have access to a large rooftop garden deck.

“I came here with my family a lot as a kid, every weekend we could and all summer.,” Weigum said.

Like many families now rooted in the area, they began renting, then staying at Birch Bay State Park, then eventually buying a small cabin on fir Tree Lane.

Weigumk said she’s been out of the area for ten years, working in Seattle and then in San Ramon, California, where she met her husband Marc, a native of Bismark, North Dakota.

They came back to the area and bought their own place near their building project which they started the month after they were married in December of 2004. Marc telecommutes from home, which expanded three months ago when son Lucas arrived. For more information, call Weigum at 360/303-2769, or go to their website at www.terrellcreeklanding.com.
