First Hill Projects up for Design Review 3/4 & 3/11

Upcoming Design Review Board meetings will feature major developments coming to First Hill. These meeting offer citizens an opportunity to hear about and review multiple aspects of a building and its site, including some of the following:

  • The overall appearance of the building
  • How the proposal relates to adjacent sites and the overall street frontage
  • How the proposal relates to unusual aspects of the site, like views or slopes
  • Pedestrian and vehicular access to the site
  • Quality of materials, open space, and landscaping

Both of these projects are in the Early Design Guidance stage.
