Two public Design Review Board meetings on Monday evening

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on August 25th, 2014

By Joe Veyera

The City of Seattle Department of Planning and Development’s (DPD) Northwest Design Review Board will host a pair of public Northwest Design Review Board meetings at the Ballard Community Center (6020 28th Ave NW) on Monday night.

Starting at 6:30 p.m., the five-member review board will discuss a proposal for a four-story structure with 40 residential units and no parking at 1506 NW 61st St (along with the demolition of the current two-story structure on the property).


According to the design proposal submitted to the DPD, the proposal addresses a need for affordable housing within the Seattle’s urban neighborhoods, and the objective is to provide an opportunity for safe, simple, efficient living within urban centers.

At 8 p.m., the board will discuss a proposal at 2003 NW 57th St for a six-story building with 126 residential units and 12 live/work units on the ground floor, and parking for 100 vehicles provided below grade.


According to that design proposal, the development objectives of the applicant is to construct a “mixed-use building that provides quality housing and flexible live/work commercial space at the ground floor level in the developing ‘downtown’ Ballard neighborhood.”

Both meetings will be held at the Community Center’s Sunset Captain Ballard Room.

According to the DPD, the process of an Early Design Guidance meeting is as follows:

  1. The applicants will present information about the site and vicinity as well as early massing design concepts.
  2. The public may offer comments regarding the design of a development on the subject site. (Note: Public comment at the EDG meeting is limited to design considerations. If environmental review is triggered, comments related to environmental impacts (such as traffic, parking, noise, etc.) may be sent to DPD following notice of that review.)
  3. The Design Review Board will provide guidance and identify those Design Guidelines of highest priority for the design as it moves forward towards Master Use Permit (MUP) application.
  4. Following the meeting, DPD will issue a written Early Design Guidance report summarizing the meeting. This report will be sent to those who signed in at the meeting or otherwise requested a copy.

    Interesting that the designers of 2003 NW 57th St consider the proposed Urban Rest Stop for homeless across the street to be a “future incompatible use” if directly across from their building lobby.

    Any updates after the reviews? Are we getting brown or beige awnings?

    The drawings for the 57th & 20th building show the existing trees on 57th but the fine print indicates that one (“diseased”) will be removed. Not replaced? Why not? If this is a “gateway” to the Ballard Commons why not retain the existing tree canopy? I don’t see any additional landscaping other than “mid block option” which requires an easement anyway
