Thank you for your interest in this project.  The Early Community Outreach began on October 9th and will continue until November 11, 2021.  Early Community Outreach is an opportunity for neighbors and the community at large to provide input on projects early in the design phase, through the Streamlined Design Review process.  Information from the public provides insights into the neighborhood characteristics that are important to the neighborhood.   Information gathered will be collected and available for SDCI staff as they review the project. 


Design Review: This project is subject to Streamlined Design Review.  Early Community Outreach is a required step in this process which tyupically includes an in-person community interaction component.  This project will satisfy the in-person component via the online survey (below) as recently allowed by city council (CB 119769).

Demolition:  The existing, partially burned, four-unit apartment building and select site improvements will be demolished. At this time, significant trees are not thought to be onsite and much of the existing vegetation will be removed.

Anticipated Development: The current program includes five three-story rowhouses facing Ninth Avenue NW.  Generally, the units are anticipated to be three bedroom units, each approximately 1800sf.  Parking and service areas are likely to be located behind the buildings, accessed off NW 52nd Street.  Mail and short term bicycle parking is likely to be located along Ninth Avenue NW.  Preliminary massing concepts include modulated street facades, upper level decks, and gabled roof forms. Materials are likely to be a combination of painted siding of various colors and textures.
