Planning for an 8-story development at 14 W Roy Street has reached the phase for Early Design Guidance and Review. The meeting to review this particular development has been scheduled for Wednesday, August 3rd, at 6:30 p.m. at the Queen Anne Community Center.
The development is planned for a lot at the intersection of West Roy Street and Queen Anne Avenue North. The proposal for this 8-story building includes 15,700 square feet of commercial, office and/or retail space on the lower levels, with 101 apartments and 8 live-work units above. Underground, there will be parking for 129 vehicles. View the full proposal here.
This development is planned to exceed the current zoning limits for 40-foot building heights, because it is located in the section of Uptown/Lower Queen Anne included in the anticipated evaluation to increase that limit to 85-feet. This rezone evaluation is included in Uptown’s Urban Design Framework for revitalizing the Uptown neighborhood, which is “a multi-year effort by the Uptown Community to define a clear vision for an active and dynamic Uptown and to identify those actions necessary to implement that vision … Uptown UDF sets out guidelines for the physical development of the neighborhood, makes specific recommendations for subareas within the neighborhood, and identifies actions necessary to advance these recommendations.”
Prior to the meeting on August 3rd, members of the community are welcome to submit comments and requests about the planning and design issues for the site. Email them, or mail them to:
