SEATTLE | 1613 Second Ave | 122m+ | 400ft+ | ? fl | Pro

The proposed structure would be a 400’ residential tower over 1613 2nd Ave with 5 below grade and 4 levels of parking above level 1. The proposal would seek a maximum height through affordable housing incentives. The proposal is seeking development rights over the adjacent structure at 1601 2nd Ave. “Broadacres Building.” The development rights would allow for a 24’ cantilever of the proposed structure over the adjacent existing structure at approx. a height of 145’ above grade.
Owner to investigate two options to determine the development site and air rights over 1601 2nd Ave. – 1) Full development rights starting at grade for both lots of 1601 & 1613 2nd Ave. (“Option 1”) or 2) Investigate an air space condo unit above 1601 2nd Ave. (“Option 2”). This in effect would create an L-shaped lot vertically from grade at 1613 2nd Ave and extend over 1601 2nd to its south property line at Pine Street.
DPD considers Option 1 to be a more straight forward option to establish a development site for the proposal. Under Option 1, the 1601 and 1613 parcels would effectively be consolidated into one “lot” for zoning purposes. Option 2 could not be confirmed at this time. BW directed the project team to submit a proposal to DPD for an interpretation. The time for DPD to process an interpretation letter may take up to 8 weeks. It may run parallel with the MUP review and is subject to an appeal.
HEWITT explained possible land use code considerations such as determining the street frontage measurement which is used to determine “Maximum Tower Width” and “Parking Location within Structures.”

Another max height residential tower for Seattle!

Wood Partners Plan Residential Tower at 1613 Second Avenue

The area around Pike Place Market just keeps getting taller and taller. Earlier this week we heard that plans for a hotel/apartment tower at at 1st & Stewart was moving forward. Now comes word via DJC that Wood Partners have unveiled plans for a 400-foot residential tower at 1613 Second Ave. The proposal includes two options, one of which would have the tower cantilever over the Broadacres Building next door at 1601 Second Ave. The structure currently on the lot, the Ames/MJA Building, has been nominated for city landmark status. The outcome of that decision will determine if it ends up getting demolished or becomes part of future plans.
We are floating in space...
