Seattle developer Harbor Urban is planning a new mixed use/apartment building for 1321 N. 45th Street (corner of Interlake Avenue and N. 45th). Plans call for 150 apartments with ground level retail space and below grade parking for 100-140 vehicles, totaling 168,000 square feet. You can review the plans here, including design sketches.
According to the plans, the site comprises 8 tax parcels “located on the approximate eastern half of the block bounded by North 45th Street on the north, Interlake Ave North on the east and North Allen Place on the south.” This means that the two story building (formerly owned by Dr. Jenefer Huntoon) and seven single-family homes would be demolished.
Wallingford resident and Harbor Urban Development Manager, T.J. Lehman, will be at Chocolati Café (1716 N. 45th St.) tomorrow night (Wednesday, January 9), from 5:00pm – 8:00pm to discuss the project and answer questions from the community. If you’re unable to attend, he and his colleague, Emiko McKittrick, have offered to schedule future meetings in the neighborhood. You can reach them at [email protected] and [email protected].
The project’s first design review is scheduled for next Monday, January 14, at 8pm, at the University Heights Community Center (5031 University Way NE).
