On the Block: Condo tower on Trinity Parish's First Hill property to have 27 stories with 203 units
There was understandable confusion back in July, when the DJC first reported on a condominium tower being planned for the Trinity Episcopal Church property, at 609 Eighth Ave. on First Hill.
In response to our queries, Trinity and Australian developer Caydon Property Group issued a press release saying Trinity would continue to own the half-block, and that the new tower would go next to the landmarked 1903 church building, which is on the corner of Eighth and James Street.
Solomon Cordwell Buenz, which has offices in San Francisco and Chicago, is designing the 27-story tower. SCB's preferred plan shows the tower going on the north side of the property, at Cherry Street. There would be 203 units in the tower, and 230 parking spaces on six levels below grade, with the garage entrance on Cherry.
The new tower by Australian developer Caydon Property Group would go next to the landmarked 1903 church, at the corner of Eighth and James.
Trinity would replace the space it loses by occupying four levels in the new podium.
