Two separate 8-story apartment buildings are in the works for the Fed-Ex building on Market St and a small lot on NW 56th St.
The property at 1740 NW Market St (.pdf) was bought by California company Wang Brothers Investments in 2018. Now, plans are in the works to turn it into a 76-unit apartment building with retail and office space on the ground floor. Parking is in the plans, but only for two vehicles.
The other 8-story apartment building would be built at 1741 NW 56th St (.pdf), and is set to have 84 units with retail and office space on the ground floor, and parking for 33 vehicles.
There is a public Early Design Guidance meeting for both proposals to be held August 5th at the Ballard Community Center (6020 28th Ave NW) in the Sunset/Captain Ballard Room.
