In January, Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections issued its recommendation that the City Council conditionally approve a rezone of the 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. However, the developer has filed a revised application, so that rezone approval has been rescinded (that’s why last week’s scheduled public hearing on the project was canceled).
The new application asks for a rezone to Neighborhood Commercial 2 with a 55-foot height limit and a mandatory housing affordability suffix of “M” (NC2-55(M)).
The building is still planned to be five stories tall, with 35 apartments, ground level retail and below-grade parking for 26 vehicles.
Comments on this new application will be accepted through March 5.
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.
