Ballard Development update: Funeral home to 6-story apartments; another northern subdivision

The previous MyBallard development update read of a design review that takes place in two weeks for a 6-story apartment structure on 56th. Today, we see an approved decision for another 6-story apartment complex on 57th, in the neighborhood of the Ballard Library. The decision below has been in review since last August.
