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.
On Tuesday, December 13th, from 6 to 8 PM there will be a Northeast Seattle Neighborhoods Open House about land use, transportation issues, parks and housing policies.
A development application for a three-story, assisted living building has been made for 4020 NE 55th Street, across from the Metropolitan Market.
Part of the process of application to do a new commercial development is to submit plans to the City of Seattle’s Design Review Board. On Monday, November 21st, the latest update was given on a project to build a cluster of townhouses on the present site of University Trailer Park, 2101 NE 88th Street. Located at the western edge of Wedgwood at Lake City Way NE, there is a single entrance to the trailer park from NE 88th Street.
City Councilmember Rob Johnson invites everyone to see info about projects and details of upcoming land use changes at an Open House on Saturday, November 19th, 10 AM to noon.
