Street names in North Renton change

North Park Drive was changed to North Southport Drive, and Northeast Park Drive to Northeast Sunset Boulevard.

If you’re heading to North Renton, make sure you check where you’re turning. Few of the street names have changed.

North Park Drive was changed to North Southport Drive, and Northeast Park Drive to Northeast Sunset Boulevard.

The changes were initially proposed by SECO Development, the developers of Hyatt Regency Lake Washington and Southport office campus, last year.

“We’re expecting an influx of first-time visitors into the community with the opening of the Hyatt, and we’ll be completing the office towers late 2018,” said Rocale Timmons, director of planning and development at SECO, last year at a Committee of the Whole meeting.

Previously Northeast Sunset Boulevard transitioned into Northeast Park Drive going east from the Highlands, and Northeast Park Drive transitioned into Park Avenue North west of Interstate 405.

With the new changes, Northeast Sunset Boulevard on the east of I-405 transitions into Southport Drive North on the west of the interstate.

SECO Development had agreed to expense, design, fabricate and install all signs, including the ones in the city and along I-405.

The street name changes will not impact future addressing nor does it affect any current civic addresses.
