Update on apartments planned for 15th Ave next to Ballard High School

Two apartment buildings are in the works for the El Camion restaurant and Corry’s dry cleaning block across the street from Ballard High School, but plans are still evolving in terms of what those developments will look like.

The two properties were purchased by Pryde + Johnson, which according to the DJC  paid $1.36 million for the El Camion site in 2016, and $2 million for the Corry’s site last year. The architects of the two projects, Clark | Barnes, also designed the two Valdok apartments on 17th Ave NW.

For the El Camion lot, a 5-story, 60-unit apartment building is proposed, with 30 parking stalls.

The lot directly south, home to Corry’s Dry Cleaning/Fuzzy Wuzzy Rug Cleaning and Platine Salon, is slated for a 5-story, 35-unit apartment building with retail on the ground floor, and parking for 29 vehicles. The Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections (SDCI) is currently reviewing the Master Use Permit application for that site, available here.

The most recent sketches for the Corry’s lot development are available on Seattle in Progress.

It’s ridiculous how boxy the buildings are. Also the orange and blue are weird color options.

And translucent. No privacy.

I think that is just the rendering.

Probably a safe assumption.

I hope the building turns out as good as the sketch. Looks nice.

Why is it people want to live in fishbowls so GD close together? Is hearing your neighbor argue or have sex that cute? Big government loves it though, as controlling is much easier to do. Blocks and blocks of group-thinkers created weekly. And besides, we really don’t need the sun anyways. I was born in a nice small city. Today Manhattan has thrown itself at us all.

If you don’t like it, don’t live there. Why do you care how others want to live?

Nice conspiracy theory rant though.

“Why is it people want to live in fishbowls so GD close together?”

I think it’s a legitimate question. At no point did anyone say they couldn’t live there.

Don’t you have another website you can go troll?

I love liberals.
Remember when Bush was Hitler and the “surveillance state” paranoia was raging after 9-11?
Haha now they’re like Truth and anybody suspicious of ACTUAL BIG DATA SURVEILLANCE and social media/corporate creepers is a “crazy conspiracy theorist”.

“If you don’t like it, don’t live there. Why do you care how others want to live?”

That’s funny. You can’t seem to leave my guns, razors, and 500 years of European literature alone without REEEEEEING to mommy for bans and laws.

You heard it here folks!

But seriously, there’s plenty of other housing options in the City that you are free to purchase or rent. Your whining is unnecessary.
