Update 11am: We just received new renderings for the apartment building from Hybrid Architects; here are the mock-ups.
Original: A new design plan has been submitted for the 5-story apartment building that will replace Mac’s Upholstery at 5011 15th Ave NW.
The current land use application now proposes a 7-unit congregate residence with 122 sleeping rooms, seven small efficiency dwelling units and five live-work units. There is no parking proposed for the building.
Previous plans were slightly different, with fewer sleeping rooms in the congregate residence and more small efficiency dwelling units. We’ve reached out to Hybrid Architecture for updated design plans — we’ll share those details when they become available.
In the meantime, there will be a public design review board recommendation meeting to discuss the application on Monday, December 2nd at 6:30pm at the Ballard Community Center (6020 28th Avenue NW) in the Sunset Room.
The Seattle Department of Construction & Inspections will accept written comments on the design to prepare for the design review meeting through November 27th — submit all comments and requests to PRC@seattle.gov, or City of Seattle – SDCI – PRC, 700 5th Avenue, Suite 2000, PO Box 34019, Seattle, WA 98124-4019.
