This development site is located at the approximate midpoint of the Harvard Avenue East block bounded by East Olive Way to the north and East Denny Way to the south. The site is currently used as a surface parking lot and has no existing structures nor significant natural features present.
An active urban connection to Broadway East is created by Dick’s Drive in Restaurant, located across the alley to the east. The west side of the site contrasts with a quiet, residential character. The development proposed for the site is comprised of 38 apartment units and two levels of underground parking with approximately 48 stalls. Upper floors of the proposed development will enjoy views to the east, south and west of Mt. Rainier, downtown and South Lake Union.
The development will implement incentives available for building height and floor area by using the Affordable Housing Incentive Program, per SMC 23.58A.013 and 23.45.516. This development will also seek a Built Green 4-star rating, a condition of gaining the Affordable Housing bonus.
