The West Design Review Board is conducting an administrative review of redevelopment plans for The Thai Kitchen site in Queen Anne.

Shilshole Development is proposing to construct a six-story apartment building with 42 units and 1,400 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Four parking spaces would be provided off the alley at 2220 Queen Anne Ave. N.

A central courtyard would be sited in the middle of the development, off the street, under Shilshole's preferred design alternative.

The development team consists of Shilshole Development, Ironstone Real Estate, Public 47 Architects and Karen Keist Landscape Architects.

Queen Anne community members shared their thoughts about the project during an outreach session at the site on July 2.

Parking had been a concern for some residents, but developers said code didn’t require adding any, which would be expensive.

The project is within the Upper Queen Anne Residential Urban Village, and is the furthest mixed-use development to the north on Queen Anne Avenue planned for construction.

Certain office, apartment, commercial and multifamily developments can opt for an administrative review, which means there will not be a public meeting.

Anyone wishing to comment on the project can do so through Dec. 9 by sending written comments to or by mail: City of Seattle—SDCI—PRC, 700 5th Ave., Suite 2000, PO Box 34019, Seattle, WA 98124-4019. The project number is 3034994-EG.
