Fred Meyer applies for redevelopment permit, project now up for environmental review

Fred Meyer’s plans to demolish the existing store on NW 85th Street and replace it with a mixed-use development are moving forward. The company has submitted its Land Use Application to the city’s Department of Planning and Development.

Land Use Application to allow a 4-story structure containing 170,000 sq. ft. of multi-purpose convenience store (Fred Meyer), 26,300 sq. ft. of ground level retail with 250 residential units above and a three level parking garage structure in an environmentally critical area. Parking for 682 vehicles to be provided. Project includes 85,000 cu. yds. of grading. Existing structures to be demolished.

The next step is a SEPA (State Environmental Policy Act) Environmental Determination. The public can comment on the application through Jan. 20.

This comment period may be the only opportunity to comment on the environmental impacts of this proposal.

PhinneyWood has covered this project extensively in the last year. The city’s Design Review Board approved the overall design in September.
