For the first time in nearly 100 years, two special pieces of property on Mercer Island are for sale. On 6610 East Mercer Way sits a 4 bedroom, mid-century modern rambler on more than an acre of flat land with 173’ of low bank waterfront. The adjoining parcel behind, 6614 East Mercer Way, is a largely untouched nearly 3 acres of land with natural woodlands rising behind a storybook cottage and level clearing.
This is the 1st installment of a 4-part Spotlight series covering the Mercer Island School District (MISD). This installment explores one of the projects the district undertook to accommodate student population growth – the building of the 4th elementary school, Northwood Elementary. I was afforded the opportunity to sit down with Mercer Island School District superintendent, Dr. Gary Plano, to talk about the state of the district. One of the topics we discussed was this exciting progress to alleviate growing pains and best serve MISD students.
