Belltown Small Lot Development

What's Happening Now?

We are considering minor changes to development standards in the Downtown Mixed Residential (DMR) zones of Belltown to accommodate modular and panelized construction on smaller lots. Current zoning requires complicated massing which is very challenging for these types of construction. We are considering changes that would allow more consistent floor plates within the existing height limits for projects meeting certain standards. The goal is to accommodate more modular and panelized construction that can increase the supply of moderately-priced rental housing.

We are seeking feedback on the draft proposal by the end of October 2019. We anticipate forwarding legislation to Council for their consideration in early 2020.
