Next Design Review meeting set for 4502 42nd SW


It’s been more than a year since the last Design Review meeting for 4502 42nd SW (map), a mixed-use project (7 stories, 81 residential units over almost 8,000 sf retail/office, 122 underground parking spaces) proposed on the site of the three little old houses you see above (and just up the block from the recent 4532 42nd SW demolition). The next one has just been posted on the city website today: It’ll return to the Southwest Design Review Board on December 18th. (The Morgan Community Association bulletin says The Kenney may be on the agenda that night too, but as of this writing, the city only lists 4502 42nd SW for that night.) No time/place listed for the meeting yet – we’ll post an update when that’s available. At the time of the first 4502 42nd SW design review last year, board members wanted the applicant to return for a second “early design guidance” meeting – but that didn’t happen — the city’s official meeting report says planners determined board members had given the applicant enough guidance for the project to proceed to the next stage.

    It’s not single-family zoned. NC-3 65, so as land is sold, the houses come down and the denser development goes in. Here’s its info page (scroll down to see the zoning map),,42ND,AVE,SW
