Department of Construction and Inspections rescinds conditional approval of rezone for 7009 Greenwood Ave. N. as developer withdraws application and refiles for shorter height rezone

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 However, the developer has filed a revised application, so that rezone approval has been rescinded (that’s why last week’s scheduled public hearing on the project was canceled).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.
