Developers grab building opportunities when the “time” is ripe. Plans from the DPD website reveal the historic boundary line between Parcel A and B, where the two proposals are divided.

Boundaries have no 'time' when it comes to density development

Neighbors demand to have a voice in 7,777 square foot project proposal

Some neighbors in Seattle think it’s just a “matter of time” before their neighborhoods change from the widespread density development. That’s just the case for a group of neighbors in Ballard. They never thought that a housing application on their block would literally be determined by an element of time, or rather a historic boundary line.

The Department of Planning and Development is in the process of reviewing a housing proposal at 819 NW 70th St. that hinges on parcel boundaries made before the 1950’s.

A boundary line adjustment is required for the project. With the DPD’s approval, a developer with Blueprint – a company that provides funding for builders in Seattle and financed 32 percent of the new homes in Seattle priced between $400,000 and $1 million in 2011 – will build a six unit work/live structure on two different lots.
