City approves rezone of 7009 Greenwood Ave. N. for added height for housing development, public hearing scheduled for Feb. 15

Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections has recommended rezoning a 12,185 square foot parcel of land at 7009 Greenwood Ave. N. from Neighborhood Commercial 2 with a 40-foot height limit to Neighborhood Commercial 2 with a 65-foot height limit. That will allow the “Shared Roof” housing development to be five stories tall, with 35 apartments, ground level retail and below-grade parking for 26 vehicles.

The existing single-family residence and detached garage at the southwest corner of the site will remain, and that portion of land will remain zoned as Single Family 5000.
DCI also has issued a Determination of Non-Significance for environmental impacts.

You can see the full recommendation here.

The decisions are appealable to the Seattle Hearing Examiner by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 30.

The city will hold a public hearing on the DCI recommendations at 9 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 15, at the Office of the Hearing Examiner, 700 5th Avenue, Suite 4000. You also can mail written comments to the same address until the close of the hearing. Any appeals filed on the project will be heard at the hearing.
