Design Review scheduled for new 6-story Uptown mixed-use building
Posted on February 11th, 2013 by Editor
Another mixed-use building is proposed for Lower Queen Anne/Uptown, this time across from Key Arena at 315 1st Ave N. The proposed building will be six stories tall and have 212 residential units along with just over 12,000 square feet of retail space. As with other recent developments, it’ll have underground parking – although it’ll have more ample parking with spots for 238 vehicles.
Runberg Architecture Group is listed as the applicant for the project; the firm also designed the Expo Apartments at 100 Republican St. At this point in the process, the firm has provided early design drawings that indicate the mass of the building, not the final design details:
The Design Review Board Recommendation meeting is slated for 6:30pm on Wednesday, February 27th at the Queen Anne Community Center (room #1). At this meeting, the applicant will present information about the proposed design and how it responds to Design Guideline priorities. Public comments are welcome, but they must be limited to design considerations. If an environmental review is triggered, comments related to environmental impacts (e.g. traffic, parking, noise, etc.) may be sent to DPD following notice of that review.
And, in related news, construction on the 5-story apartment complex designed by Studio Meng Strazza at 3rd Ave W & Republican will begin next month. As reported in December, this project will house 71 apartments, 5 live/work units, and 82 underground parking stalls.
