Sherwin-Williams building could become new condos

The large Sherwin-Williams warehouse on the corner of 14th Ave NW and NW Market St will likely become a 60-unit apartment building.

The Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce reports that the owner and DDG Architects of Redmond have filed a proposal to turn the 20,400 square-foot lot into a mixed-use residential development.

The longtime owner had been trying to lease out the vacant building for quite some time.

The lot is directly east of the AVA Ballard apartments, and very close to the busy 15th and Market intersection.

Greedy developers are killing Seattle neighborhoods. Getting around Ballard has become a pain, roads constantly closed with construction, more housing in smaller footprints and none with parking. My question is how many of the buildings are actually getting filled? This place is turning into NYC – we left that area due to overcrowding only to get to Seattle and find that it’s rapidly happening here.

These “greedy developers” are merely getting away with what the elected theoreticians allow them to. Your anger needs to be directed to city hall pal. Much like many other large coastal tribal regions, we here also have 1 party rule, with no alternative opinions/ideas, and little to none pushback. So you’re from NYC. BFD. Welcome home!

You do realize that the city council is non-partisan, right?
If there are no conservatives on the council it is because no worthy conservatives have run.

As much as I hate the way developers are changing the face of Ballard with these ugly boxes full of overpriced, cheaply made apartments the land owner has a right to not lose money.

“The longtime owner had been trying to lease out the vacant building for quite
some time.”

An empty building sitting around isn’t doing anyone any favors.

At least these are condos that will allow people to build some equity. The expensive apartments are the true villains.
