Design Review Part Two: the Trailer Park to Townhouses Project

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.

What is HALA?

For more than fifteen years now we have been hearing about urban villages and planning for more housing in Seattle, with Wedgwood never included in any “zoning maps” for greater density of buildings.  Now the Mayor of Seattle and the City Council are proposing to bring the Housing Affordability and Livability plans into practice in the year 2017.  This plan could include zoning regulations which would bring benefit to controlling what types of new buildings will come in along Wedgwood’s commercial district of 35th Ave NE.
