Developer of property with the Viking invites public to design meeting Dec. 19

Local developer Bill Parks is inviting the public to attend a development review meeting at Sunset Hill Community Clubhouse at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 19 to learn about plans for the Ballard Lofts project on southeast corner of NW 65th St and 24th Ave NW.

The scope of the project has changed since Design Review meetings held earlier, with the addition of the properties south of the existing auto body shop, which includes The Viking, the barber and a residence.

In order to address community questions Parks is inviting interested citizens to hear a presentation of the revised project, an overview of the parking and traffic study and identify additional concerns in a question/comment period. Per Mr. Parks public input has already led to changes in the number of parking spaces and a reduction in units from 95 to 72. He knows this project is also of interest to those tracking on another development proposed for NW 64th St and 32nd Ave NW because he proposes to relocate the Sunset Hill Green Market which resides there to the 24th Ave NW location during its later construction.

If you want to know more or just remind yourself on what has been happening, we covered the design here and a previous meeting here. You can find the latest update here.
