Trailside Vacation

Review Status

On November 16, 2017, we reviewed the urban design merit for the trailside vacation proposal. We did not take an action at this meeting.  We provided the applicant with several recommendations that should be addressed prior to the next meeting.

Project Description

The applicant is petitioning to vacate NE 48th St between 24th Ave NE and the Burke-Gilman Trail.  The vacation proposal includes the development of two 7-story residential buildings with an estimated 268 residential units, ground floor retail, outdoor amenities space for residents, and below grade parking with 278 parking stalls.  The development also includes publicly accessible open space, pedestrian and cyclist connection to the Burke-Gilman Trail near NE 47th St, as well as an additional pedestrian connection to the Burke-Gilman Trail near NE 49th St.
