Design review meeting tonight for Sunset Hill Green Market site

After two community input meetings regarding the Sunset Hill Greenmarket site on the corner of 32nd Avenue NW and NW 64th St, developer Bill Parks will now present his designs to the City at an upcoming design guidance meeting.

On Monday, March 12, Parks and his team will present his plans for a 3 or 4 story mixed-use project with apartments, retail, offices, and Greenmarket.

The site, home to Sunset Hill Green Market, an artist studio and holistic practitioner, was bought by Parks in 2007 but Parks waited to develop until the market stabilized.

Parks is revisiting this project and held two community meetings last month to hear people's concerns and allow the neighbors to give input before presenting his project to the City.

Parks is considers one of three schematics; a three-story remodel of the existing building, a brand new three-story development, or a four-story “Living Building” challenge. (View schematics, here)

At the previous meeting, Parks announced that Sunset Hill's beloved Sunset Hill Green Market will continue in the new development, and community challenged Parks to build a sustainable building that preserves the soul of Sunset Hill.

The meeting will take place from 6:30 until 9:30 at the Sunset Hill Community Association,  3003  NW 66th Street.
