Rezoning could bump planned Uptown 6 story building up to 8 stories
Back in June, we posted on three new planned multi-story projects planned for Uptown/Lower Queen Anne. Today, a Land Use Bulletin was released for the proposed 6-story building at 513 1st Ave N. An application has been submitted to rezone the lot to allow an 8-story building.
In June, the application was for a 6-story, 92 unit apartment building with parking for 45 vehicles. With the latest application, the number of apartments goes up to 105, and the parking goes down to 33 vehicles. Two more floors, thirteen more apartments, twelve less parking spaces.
The Uptown Urban Framework includes height increases for much of Lower Queen Anne/Uptown – see the map below. The Uptown Alliance meetings have covered the plan in many past meetings – if you are interested or concerned about the height zoning changes, look for the next Uptown Alliance meeting (info will be posted here) or contact the City of Seattle Senior Planner or Urban Designer, both listed on the main Uptown Urban Framework website.
