8403 Greenwood Avenue is getting a much needed face-lift. Taken from Seattle DCI activity locator:
“Construct 91,400 sq. ft. residential buildings with 75 units and 70 parking spaces. REVISED FROM: Demolition of remaining structures, surface parking, and on site debris. New mixed use construction consisting of 5 floors above grade including ground floor retail and approximately 75 residential units; two floors of below grade parking.”
After reading the land use pre-submittal notes, it was confirmed the development will have 6 stories of above grade parking and 2 stories of below grade parking. It was also recommended that the developer, Slattery Properties, do proper community outreach on the controversial site (where the Greenwood gas explosion in March occurred). I heard Mr. Slattery himself speak at the Greenwood Community Council meeting the night the ruling of the gas explosion came to light. He mentioned the new development would welcome all the old tenants back for first right of refusal on the ground floor retail, but he did not mentioned how much of a premium the new building would be.
Clark Design Group will be spearheading the effort and will be preparing for the full blown design guidance review by the community, giving everyone a chance to comment.
