The public is invited to comment about site planning and design at the second Early Design Guidance Meeting for a proposed 100-unit building at 1008 N. 109th St. The developer’s preferred option out of three has 93 “small efficiency dwelling units” and seven live/work units.
The meeting is at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 2, at the Ballard Community Center, 6020 28th Ave. NW, in the Sunset Capt. Ballard Room.
The four-story building will have surface parking for either 9 or 12 vehicles (the design proposal uses the numbers inconsistently, and the Land Use Bulletin says 15), basement storage for 100 bicycles, a rooftop deck and solar panels. Each SEDU will have 225 square feet of space. Each live/work unit will be about 320 square feet. Three commercial spaces would be on the ground floor. The proposal requires a lot boundary adjustment.
You can see the full design proposal here (PDF).
The property is on the corner of Aurora Avenue North and North 109th Street, adjacent to the Rose Corner Flower Shop. It currently has a giant pile of dirt and is surrounded by trucks from the nearby Handy Andy Rent-A-Tool.
If you are unable to attend the meeting, you can send written comments about site planning and design issues by Feb. 2 by email to PRC@seattle.gov or mail to: City of Seattle – DPD – PRC, 700 5th Ave., Suite 2000, PO Box 34019, Seattle, WA 98124-4019. Reference project number 3017565.
If an environmental review is later triggered, the public will have the opportunity to comment on environmental impacts such as traffic, parking, noise, etc.
