Interested in the development of the Beacon Hill Station Block property at 17th Avenue South and South McClellan Street? Mark your calendar for Tuesday, November 13 at 6:30 p.m., when the Design Review Board will meet for the second phase of Design Review for this project, the recommendation meeting.

The proposed project is a six-story structure with 47 residential units and 2,046 square feet of retail space. There will be parking for 17 vehicles in a garage below grade.

Here’s what is on the schedule for the Design Review Board recommendation meeting, according to a notice posted by the Department of Planning and Development (DPD):

  • The applicant will present information about the proposed design and how it responds to the Design Guideline priorities established at the previous Early Design Guidance meeting(s).
  • The public may offer comments regarding the proposed design. Please note that public comment at the Recommendation meeting is limited to design considerations. If environmental review is triggered, comments related to environmental impacts (such as traffic, parking, noise, etc) may be sent to DPD following notice of that review.
  • The Design Review Board will offer their recommendations regarding the design to the Director of the DPD.

The meeting will be held at the Wellspring Services Community Room, 1900 Rainier Ave. S. For more information, see the DPD page, or our “station block development” archive of stories about the site.

  1. And what sort of housing it will be? Probably too much to hope that there’ll be some rent-controlled apartments for seniors, but it really would be wonderful to find my parents an affordable place to live on the Hill…
