SEATTLE | Spring Street North Block (1101 8th Ave) | 330 Feet X2

"The proposed project includes seven levels of below grade parking spanning under the existing alley. Two 330’ residential towers are located above grade on the SW and SE corners of the site. Approximately 550 units are planned including four (4) townhomes, which will be located at street level along 8th Avenue. A small café is planned at grade fronting the park. There have been discussions of considering a small scale grocer, but no other ground floor commercial is proposed at this time."

This will start to make a real canyon around the I5 corridor, hopefully it spurs real thought on capping the damn thing with a park. Good development.

7 levels of parking though...wow.

Two 32-story towers eyed for First Hill site

By JOURNAL STAFF



A proposal to build a pair of 32-story residential towers next to Town Hall Seattle is scheduled to get its first look by a Seattle design review board this fall.



Plans call for a total of 550 residential units, including four street-level townhouse units, and 410 shared parking spaces on seven levels underground. Retail could include a cafe and small grocer.



Lennar Multifamily Communities is listed in permit documents as the project applicant. The DJC reported in 2014 that British Columbia Investment Management Corp. owns the sites.

This projects, and the oft talked about redevelopment of the Presbyterian Chirch property will do a lot to integrate First Hill with downtown Seattle. The other missing piece is that ghastly parking lot/garage for he Polyclinic (healthy parrots!).

I didn't know the church owned these lots. I haven't gone over these documents, is this expected to be a phased development?

I meant are these two towers phase I & II, or are they being built concurrently.

They will be built concurrently. Aside from that just generally being the plan, huge economies of scale and efficiencies are gained by building both at the same time.

This article covers the re-design of the block in a bit more detail - trying to make the connection with Freeway Park. It looks like the re-development is targeted to begin August 2017.

Ruling moves church site closer to redevelopment

By BRIAN MILLER
Journal staff reporter

A splinter group at First Presbyterian Church of Seattle received an adverse ruling from the Washington State Supreme Court, which removes another roadblock to developing two large parcels along both sides of Spring Street on First Hill, just above Interstate 5.

On the north side of Spring Street is Town Hall, which plans its own separate renovation, as well as an L-shaped parcel where Lennar is planning two 32-story residential towers on parking lots that First Presbyterian sold in 2014 for $9 million.
