From the Early Design Guidance packet regarding the preferred “Scheme”

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 façade 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.





Provides strong street façade 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 “eyes on the street” at ground floor


The public area at the front façade 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




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
