The second Design Review Board meeting for the new project on Union Bay Place is tonight (February 22) at 6:30 at University Heights. This project is across from Tully’s at “Five Corners” and buttresses the Burke Gilman Trail; however, due to slope issues, the project will not be connected to the Burke.
Just East on the Burke Gilman Trail, the new restaurants in the former Bill the Butcher site have opened. This site was considered as a bike hotel, but people in Laurelhurst were concerned about the lack of parking for such a project. The Laurelhurst Community Association Blog has written a post about the new restaurants and now appear to be content with having more options for eating out near their neighborhood.
With the opening of the new Light Rail station at Husky Stadium opening on March 19th, this portion of Ravenna-Bryant will surely see a lot of new development.
