Ballard Development: one new application, two decisions and two design reviews

In addition, permission for two subdivisions has been granted by the DPD.

Furthermore, two design review meetings have been scheduled: one for a four-story structure with 40 residential units and no parking; and another for a six-story building with 126 residential units, 12 live/work units on the ground floor and 100 parking units below ground.

PROCESS

An application for Design Review related to future development of this site has been submitted to the Department of Planning and Development (DPD). The first phase of Design Review includes the Early Design Guidance (EDG) meeting. At the Early Design Guidance meeting, the following occurs:

The applicants will present information about the site and vicinity as well as early massing design concepts.
The public may offer comments regarding the design of a development on the subject site.*
The Design Review Board will provide guidance and identify those Design Guidelines of highest priority for the design as it moves forward towards Master Use Permit (MUP) application.
Following the meeting, DPD will issue a written Early Design Guidance report summarizing the meeting. This report will be sent to those who signed in at the meeting or otherwise requested a copy.

*Please note that public comment at the EDG meeting is limited to design considerations. If environmental review is triggered, comments related to environmental impacts (such as traffic, parking, noise, etc.) may be sent to DPD following notice of that review.
