The apartment tower planned for 4700 Brooklyn Ave. N.E. — likely to be the University District's first new high rise in over three decades — will have its second and probably final design review next month.
Now called The M, the 24-story tower is being designed by NBBJ for Fields Holdings of Los Angeles. It will replace a gas station on the 16,462-square-foot northeast corner of Brooklyn and Northeast 47th Street, south of the Safeway.
The M will have 227 units, 5,495 square feet of retail or commercial space and one level of underground parking for 25 vehicles, to be accessed from the alley to the east. A bike room will have 86 stalls.
The site is two blocks north of the light rail station expected to open in 2021.
Levels two and three will be “family friendly” townhouses with two and three bedrooms, and shared terraces. The units above will range from studios to five-bedroom apartments suitable for students to share.
