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.
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.
Growler Guys at 8500 Lake City Way NE will open at 5 PM on Saturday, November 19th.
In March 2016 the longtime Yings Drive-In closed. They had been at 8500 Lake City Way NE for forty-five years. The building is now being remodelled for Growler Guys with the opening date not yet announced.
