So I thought I would try to post pictures of Shoreline for the first time, starting with the only really significant project going on right now. This is the Malmo Apartments, slated to be open this summer. It's kitty corner to the future Aurora Square.
North Seattle's urban centers will scale up in intensity pretty quickly. It'll be interesting to see what Maple Leaf, Lake City, North City, Aurora Ave, Northgate, Shoreline, Crown Hill, Greenwood look like in 20 years.
The center of the block that is east of 1st, west of I-5, and north of 145th is going to be a 235-unit multifamily project with minimal retail space (less than 2,000 SF). It's a "through block" site that has access from both 145th and 147th, but lacks access from 1st to the west. Construction is planned to start June 2022 and complete around September 2024. There will be a Shoreline MFTE component.
This is definitely going to be a busy area. I guess with the pedestrian bridge and the 145th bridge re-do, there will actually be two bona fide pedestrian crossings across I-5 within three blocks here. That has to be a record for density of pedestrian crossings on I-5 in the suburban parts of the region.
Cool. I did a little digging on this project. Looks like it is this site (boundaries approximate):
This is a great location for bus lines, proximity to services (QFC, WaFd, Starbucks, Goodwill, vet clinic), and not too far from the Shoreline light rail. I'm not too familiar with what bus services go E-W on 145th but it looks like a fairly easy ride to get over to the station.
