Tonight, there will be a Design Review Board meeting for the Ballard Lofts project at the corner of NW 65th St. and 24th Ave NW. The development will be a 72-unit apartment complex, split between two buildings, with a green courtyard in between and retail space on the ground level. The project has gained attention for its plan to tear down the longstanding Viking tavern.
The meeting is scheduled for today (Monday, Jan. 28) at 6:30 p.m. at Ballard High School. At the meeting, the developer, Bill Parks, will present information about the proposed design and how it responds to the priorities highlighted at the previous design meeting. The public may offer comments about the design, and then the board will offer their recommendations about the design to the director of the Department of Planning and Development.
