The self-storage warehouse project approved for 9701 Aurora Ave. N. has been appealed, with a hearing set for 9 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 13, at the City of Seattle Hearing Examiner’s Office, Seattle Municipal Tower, 700 5th Ave., 40th Floor.
Hearings are open to the public, but generally only those who are parties to the appeal and persons called by the parties as witnesses will have the opportunity to testify. A person who has not appealed, but who has a substantial interest in the outcome of the appeal, may request to be allowed to participate in an appeal as an “intervenor”. An intervenor, like the parties, would have the option of appealing the Hearing Examiner’s decision in this matter. Intervenor status should be requested as soon as possible prior to hearing and in accordance with the Hearing Examiner Rules. For information regarding appeals and intervenor status, contact or visit the Hearing Examiner. The Hearing Examiner’s office provides barrier-free access.
The Department of Construction and Inspections conditionally granted approval for design review and determined there were no significant environmental issues.
The project calls for a six-story, 260,000 square foot self-storage facility with an office, caretaker unit, and parking for 22 vehicles. The current building (where Gold’s Gym was) and parking lot will be demolished.
