Design Update for NE 70th and I-5 Crossing Improvement Impacts Some Parking

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

Development at 8038-8040 35th Ave NE

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.

Densification in Western Wedgwood

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.

University Trailer Park Residents Speak Out

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.
