New apartments, assisted living and retail center proposed

Browsing the list of upcoming design review board meetings, we discovered some new proposals in Ballard and Crown Hill:

8-story apartment building, 2432 NW 56th St

This is a proposal to build 55 units (with parking for 48 vehicles below) on 56th, behind the Mark 24 apartment complex in central Ballard. Looks like one or more houses would be torn down. The early design meeting is scheduled for Dec. 4th at 8 p.m. at the Ballard Community Center.

5-story and 6-story assisted living and retail center, 10002 Holman Rd. NW

This maps to the location currently occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Wok and Childish Things at Holman Rd. and 4th Ave. NW. The proposal is for two structures with 95 assisted living units and retail at ground level with underground parking for 51 vehicles. The existing structures would be demolished. The early design meeting is scheduled for Dec. 4th at 6:30 p.m. at the Ballard Community Center.

We reported on these next two proposals earlier this summer, but there are design review board meetings coming up:

4-story “congregate residences”, 8311 15th Ave. NW

The map takes us to the home of Restaurante Michoacan, and the proposal is for “five congregate residences with 80 sleeping rooms” and retail on the ground floor. The next meeting is Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. at the Ballard Community Center.

4-story apartment and retail space, 8541 15th Ave NW

This address leads us to 85th and 15th and a building occupied by the Wild Orchid Thai and Taki’s Mad Greek restaurants. This proposal is for “four small efficiency dwelling units and 36 apartments above retail space” with no parking planned. Existing structure will be demolished. The meeting is Nov. 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Ballard Community Center.

Construction finished at ‘Leva on Market’

Construction at one of Ballard’s largest new developments, Leva on Market, located on Market St. between 15th and 17th Avenues, is now officially complete. Residents will be moving into the apartment complex this month. Trammell Crow Residential, which is managing the property, called it “Ballard’s first new apartment community in 20 years.”

Leva on Market features 22 studios, 162 one-bedroom homes, 67 two-bedroom homes and nine live-work lofts. Leasing rates start at $1,024. The Stranger reported last week that 95 percent of the units are still available. You can see more photos of Leva on Market right here.
