The full design packet can be found here from 2018 but the project has undergone significant changes since then.
It was at one point going to be fity six apartments, then a storage facility and finally now a mixed use facility with 71 apartments and retail.
The end of the public comment period isÂ 09/30/2020.
Scheme 3 is a zoning compliant scheme that acknowledges the buildings position as anchor to two separate and different corners. The mass of the building has been split into two volumes, each sized respectively to the zone it abuts, and split by a recess in the building faĂ§ade which aligns with a circulation corridor within. The residential lobby is accessed from the smaller volume, located on the residential frontage, and the commercial space is accessed from the larger volume, facing the commercial frontage.
NO OF RESIDENTIAL UNITS: 71
NO OF COMMERCIAL STOREFRONTS: 2
PARKING: 0 (NONE REQUIRED)
Provides strong street faĂ§ade to anchor the street frontage
Provides ample space for a developed space and public realm to compliment the adjacent community greenspace
Provides commercial frontage along Delridge Way for additional â€śeyes on the streetâ€ť at ground floor
The public area at the front faĂ§ade will need to be carefully planned so that it can transition with the neighborhood and does not provide opportunity for aggravating safety issues in park
COMMUNITY OUTREACH INTEGRATION:
Increased setback at the ground floor along SW Barton St creates generous area for landscaped spaces, permeable surfaces, drainage elements, and other potential sustainable features.
Additional plantings will be integrated into the roof deck amenity space. Solar panels will be installed on the roof
Consistent setback from SW Barton St allows for view and solar corridors
Project team will work with construction team to address parking concerns
