That’s the latest draft rendering for 1307 Harbor Avenue SW, the mixed-use project planned for what is currently about a half-block of shuttered, fenced off vacant buildings including the former Alki Tavern, across from Don Armeni Boat Ramp. The tavern already had been closed a year by the time the proposed mixed-use project had its first Southwest Design Review Board meeting in April of 2014 – and now, more than a year and a half later, the date is finally set for its next one. In our coverage of that first meeting, the project was described as including 21 residential units and 41 underground parking spaces; now it’s described as including 15 residential units and 27 parking spaces “within the structure.” It’s also still proposed for “retail, restaurant, office, and light manufacturing” space, the same non-residential uses as mentioned before. Here’s the draft of the packet for the meeting, with more details on the plan:
The project has
changed architects – the packet shows Rhodes Architecture & Light, a West Seattle-based firm, as “architect of record,” while Miller-Hull was the architect at the time of the 2014 review. The upcoming review meeting is scheduled for 6:30 pm Thursday, January 21st, at the Sisson Building in The Junction (California/Oregon).
