Ballard development wants to spark ‘eco-district’

The two-building development that’s planned for 2034 NW 56th Street, just behind the Neighborhood Service Center/library “will emphasize ‘social’ and ‘sensible’ sustainability” according to the Daily Journal of Commerce.

The Greenfire Campus is being designed by Johnston Architects and hopes to spark a new ‘eco district’ in Ballard. According to the Land Use Application, there will be a four-story office building with 18,505 square feet of space and a five-story, 18-unit residential building. A total of 32 parking spaces will be provided. The building on the site now will be demolished.

Ray Johnston told the DJC that food will be grown on the property for restaurants and passersby and there will be a P-Patch for residents. “Sometimes we need to let nature have a little piece of the land we are developing,” said Johnston.
