Seattle’s Department of Planning and Development has approved Ken’s Market expansion with no changes, following a Jan. 9 appeal hearing.
Several nearby residents had appealed the decision not to require Ken’s Market to provide significant additional parking spaces or traffic calming measures. The city had determined that additional traffic would be minimal.
Ken’s is expanding the grocery store into the entire building at the corner of Greenwood Ave. N. and NW 73rd St., including the spots formerly occupied by the Greenwood Bakery, Allusia gift store, and Couth Buzzard book store. Ken’s is also adding a small amount to the back and a partial second story for offices. Click here for previous reports and a design drawing.
