A representative from Goodman RE will attend our April 7th, 2015 board meeting (Ravenna Eckstein Community Center 7-9 p.m.) to give an update on their project to remodel the Theodora, just south of the NE District Library.
Just on the other side of 34th Ave NE from the Theodora, the City of Seattle issued the Master Use Permit for the townhome (LR 2) portion of the Bryant Heights Project. You can read more about this project on NE 65th between 32nd and 34th Ave NE here.
With this land use decision, the City can now begin the process to release or issue the pending and separate demolition permits for the older dormitory (cottage) buildings on the middle of the Bryant Heights property. Based on current permit issuance cycle, it is estimated that the demolition permits will be released to the team on or before March 23, 2015. They anticipate that the demolition of these older buildings will take approximately 30 days. As you may recall, these structures were also used by the Seattle Fire Department for training exercises, consequently, all of the environmental inspection of hazardous materials such as asbestos was previously completed.
As noted on the above plan, all construction personnel will be instructed to park within the confines of the Bryant Heights property.
According to Polygon Homes, the building permits for the actual construction of the townhome buildings are “currently under separate review with the various departments within City of Seattle Planning and Development Department. At this time, we do not have an update as to when those permits will be released, but will update you once we know more.”
