Tonight, AvalonBay Communities will present to the Design Review Board their updated version of the apartment building that will replace Sunset Bowl.
These are the updated designs of the 233-unit apartment building, courtesy of Ankrom Moisan Associated Architects. The above rendering is of the south side of the building, facing Market St.
This is the west side of the building. During the last meeting, the Design Review Board thought this side of the building looked plain (see old designs here). According to the updated proposal that will be presented tonight, architects pushed back the center part of the wall for plants and added “a visually interesting pattern of color” on either side. The meeting is at 6:30 tonight at the Ballard High School library, and it’s open to the public.
