Old Ballard Library being torn down to make way for new apartments

We’ve had several tips from readers about the old Ballard Library demolition today (5711 24th Ave NW). The former site of the Ballard Library has stood mostly empty since Abraxus Books moved out in 2009. According to the Department of Planning and Development, it will be turned into “Ballard West,” a 6-story building with ground-level retail space, three live-work units, 107 residential units above and enough parking for 80 vehicles.
