Conditional approval of design and environmental impacts for apartment building coming to former substation site at 949 N. 80th St.

The Department of Construction and Inspections has approved with conditions the apartment building proposed for the former Seattle City Light substation site at 949 N. 80th St.

The empty lot was covered with fake flowers when the development was first proposed two years ago.

The project is a four-story apartment building with 24 small efficiency dwelling units (studios) and grade-level parking for six vehicles.

The project underwent Administrative Design Review, meaning no public meetings, but public comments were received. You can see the Design Proposal here.
You can read DCI’s full decision here. Anyone wishing to appeal the decision must contact the Hearing Examiner by Tuesday, Jan. 9 (sorry for the late notice; the decision was published just after Christmas).
