The Design Review Board will meet with planners on Monday for a new development at 5343 Tallman Ave NW for an Early Design Guidance meeting.
Plans call for a seven-story structure with 240 residential units and 7,500 square feet of commercial space at ground level and parking for 288 vehicles. According to the presentation (.pdf), “One of the great attributes of Ballard is its “walkabililty”. Our project sits near the center of a long block on a diagonal to the traditional city grid. It is flanked on two sides by large developments that create extended walls, blocking east/ west walkways. By creating a mid-block connection and interesting pedestrian facades, the project looks to enhance the walkabilty of this section of Ballard.”
The public meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Ballard High School library (1418 NW 65th St.)
