The city has approved the permit to build a 4-story office building in two lots at the corner of 14th Ave. NW and NW 51th St.
In its initial proposal, the developer said it was planning a restaurant on the first floor — now it’s marked “commercial” instead. The plans call for 15 parking spots.
The vacant industrial lot on the corner sold for $850,000 last summer. The building next door was a machine shop. Both lots will be combined together for the office project.
While residential buildings are exploding around Ballard, new office space is much less common.
