Updated plans for 8-story apartment coming to 24th and Market

The project to redevelop the southwest corner of 24th Ave NW and NW Market St is rolling ahead with updated plans for the apartment building.

The new plans call for an 8-story apartment with 182 units and ground-floor retail. Parking for 114 vehicles is in the plans.

The Market Arms closed in 2020 during the pandemic, and almost turned into Bjorn’s Bar, with Scandinavian Specialties owner Bjorn Ruud behind the idea. But Ruud told My Ballard last year that the owner of the building chose instead to sell, which meant his pub plans were on hold.

The property owner Deal Investments filed a land use pre-application in November 2021 to develop a 190,570 square-foot mixed-use building with 4,525 sq. ft. of retail. The original plans called for 188 residential units, 6,300 sq. ft. of common amenity space, and parking for 119 vehicles.

The project area includes the space where 8oz Burger & Co. operates (2409 NW Market St) and Lunde Marine Electronics (5415 24th Ave NW).

No word yet on the construction timeline, but the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections (Seattle DCI) is currently reviewing the Master Use Permit application for the revised application.
