The roughly 10 acre site on North Wenatchee Avenue will be developed into a commercial site for shopping and dining establishments in 2023.  The city of Wenatchee will likely announce a major anchor tenant for the property this spring now that the McKittrick Street and Columbia Ave improvements projects that border the site have been finalized.

On a recent episode of KPQ's The Agenda, I  asked "What Restaurants Do You Want in Wenatchee?"  Perhaps the former WSDOT property would make an ideal location for these suggestions from listeners?
