4-story apartment planned for NW Market St and 11th Ave NW

Another apartment building, albeit a smaller one, is in the works for the east end of NW Market St in Ballard.

The project site is 1103 NW Market St. According to the land use application, the plans include a 4-story, 45-unit apartment (42 small efficiency dwelling units and three live-work units) with no parking.

There will be an informational meeting about the plans on Saturday, Oct. 15 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Ballard Public Library. The developer (Chair6 Development) and architect (Sar Merr Design) will share early design concepts and encourage community input.

The earliest potential construction start date is fall 2024, with an estimated build time of 16 months.

Several other apartment projects are in the works along that stretch of NW Market St.

The new apartment would be built just down the street from a 6-story, 161-unit complex at 904 NW Market St, and across the street from a 5-story, 229-unit apartment building at 907 NW Market St

Further west on Market, a 7-story apartment building is set to replace the Firestone at 1145 NW Market St. The plans include 122 units with ground-level retail. Parking for 70 vehicles is proposed. Just west of 904 NW Market St is the future site of yet another 5-story apartment complex at the current KFC location. The plans include 86 small efficiency dwelling units with no parking proposed.

The meeting on Oct. 15 is open to the public, and coffee and cookies will be served. No RSVP is needed. Any questions or comments can also be submitted to projectwillard@sarmerr.com
