Latest development in Greenwood Town Center area will bring 7-story building with 145 apartments, retail, and parking for 100 vehicles

March 16th, 2017 by Doree

The empty grass lot on Palatine Avenue North just south of North 87th Street will be turned into a seven-story building with 145 apartments, retail at ground level, and parking for 100 vehicles. It’s the latest parcel owned by Greenwood Shopping Center to be developed in the Greenwood Town Center area, which includes Fred Meyer, the Sedges apartments (directly across the street from this parcel) and other surrounding lots.

An Early Design Guidance meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 3, at the Ballard Community Center, 6020 28th Ave. NW, in the Sunset/Captain Ballard Room.

You also can email written comments on site planning and design issues through April 3 to PRC@seattle.gov. Reference project# 3026306. (If environmental review is triggered, comments related to environmental impacts — such as traffic, parking, noise, etc. – can be submitted to Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections at that time.)

A design proposal is not yet online.
