Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections has issued its recommendation in favor of rezoning the parcel of land at 7009 Greenwood Ave. N. to allow additional height for a housing project. The land is currently zoned Neighborhood Commercial 2 with a 40-foot height limit, but the city would rezone that to Neighborhood Commercial 2 with a 55-foot height limit.
The “Shared Roof” project would be five stories tall with 35 apartments, ground level retail, and below-grade parking for 26 vehicles. (The single-family zoned portion of land at the southwest corner of the site would retain its zoning, and the existing house and detached garage would remain.)
The project has already gone through Design Review.
You can read the full DCI decision here. DCI also issued a Determination of Non-Significance on environmental impacts. Both of those decisions are appealable to the city Hearing Examiner by 5 p.m. April 23, with an $85 filing fee.
The Hearing Examiner will hold a public hearing on DCI’s recommendations at 9 a.m. Monday, April 30, at the Office of the Hearing Examiner, 700 5th Avenue, Suite 4000, Seattle, WA 98124-4729. Written comments also will be accepted until the close of that hearing.
