Seattle Heights: What Could be Coming to Your Backyard

rsz_2625_prelim_designSEATTLE HEIGHTS RESIDENTS, TAKE NOTE!  We came across a news item about the 2625 Third Avenue project which should be of great interest to you. 

Originally, the current site of the American Lung Association was slated to make way for a 18-story building with 204 residential units above 4,000 sq ft of retail space.  Now, however, the developers are petitioning to increase the height to 26 stories, with 310 residential units instead.  Retail size would stay the same, with parking for 160 vehicles in five below-grade levels.

To the left is the Preliminary Design, and we have also attached the current zone map and zoning context maps at the bottom of this article.

If you would like to make your voice heard on the changes in this project, especially those Seattle Heights residents whose views may be impacted, you can attend a Seattle design review board meeting on Tuesday, February 22nd at Seattle City Hall, 601 Fifth Ave, Room L-280 at 5:30 p.m.  

Check out the February 22nd section of this meeting link for more information. Click on the Design Proposal area to download the 33-page presentation to be made on Tuesday evening.  The contact for this project is Sean Sullivan at (206) 624-8154, and the planner is Michael Dorcy at (206) 615-1393.

    Seattle Heights values will PLUMMET! already the street is horrible. the apt building construction on 3rd is going to take 1.5 years while they erect a 17 story building there (eastern view). and to the south the mcquire demolition will be starting shortly which will take at least 17 months. so lots of noise in the neighborhood and blocking of the views…..and sunlight.
