Seattle Parks and Recreation invites you to come learn about and comment on the coming improvements to the Magnuson Community Center. This project will build out the south wing of the community center to allow greater programming capacity. Seattle Parks and Recreation staff and the design team from Buffalo Design will be present to talk about the designs and answer questions.
You are invited to review the park and street improvement ideas submitted by the public for Your Voice, Your Choice: Parks & Streets. Participation is open to all who live, work, go to school, receive services, volunteer, or have a connection to the City of Seattle. If you cannot attend a meeting, but would like to evaluate projects, there will be an opportunity to do so online.
The NE 70th St Crossing Improvement design has been updated to remove the parking option between Roosevelt Way NE and 12th Ave NE, to compensate for the narrowness of the street. Parking still will be available on the south side of NE 70th St between Roosevelt Way NE and 8th Ave NE as shown on the previous design. Updates and information about the revisions are available online at Seattle.gov: http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/projects-and-programs/programs/neighborhood-street-fund-program/projects/ne-70th-st
A development project at 8044 35th Ave NE recently received preliminary guidance from the Seattle Department of Construction & Inspections (SDCI), and appears to be moving ahead.
Anyone who has passed by 8038-8040 35th Ave NE recently has probably noticed that construction is well underway. After last September’s demolition of a long-vacant one-story building on the site, the new development has taken shape rather quickly. The site plans include three row houses along 35th Ave NE, with two townhouses and one single-family residence behind.
Last night the SDCI’s Northeast Design Review Board unanimously approved the proposed design for the townhome development at 2101 NE 88th Street, on the present site of University Trailer Park.
Ahead of tonight’s design review meeting of the proposed townhome development at 2101 NE 88th Street, the Wedgwood Community Council submitted the following letter to the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections.
Between NE 85th to 95th Streets the western border of the Wedgwood neighborhood is along Lake City Way NE. Because this is in a commercial zone, the adjacent housing is becoming more and more dense with multifamily housing projects. The latest to break ground is at the corner NE 85th Street directly across 20th Ave NE from Growler Guys.
This year a commercial developer will acquire the University Trailer Park at 2101 NE 88th Street from the long-time owner, Mr. Franklin Evans. The trailer park’s residents have to move out by June 2017, when construction is scheduled to begin on a cluster of townhouses. Recently, residents publicized their plight with a series of signs along Lake City Way NE.
More than six years ago Fire Station 39 in Lake City got a new building, located next door to the old one. Since that time, the future use of the old building has been in dispute. Now the City of Seattle is on the verge of completing an agreement for low-income housing to be built on the site.
