Plans for a seven-story apartment building with approximately 175 units in Uptown will come before the West Design Review Board later this month.

An early design guidance meeting is set for Aug. 15 at 8 p.m. at the Queen Anne Community Center (1901 1st Ave. W.) for the proposed development with ground-floor retail space at 100 Roy St. Parking for 125 vehicles would be provided. According to documents submitted to the city, the building would come in just shy of 200,000 square feet of space, with street-level commercial taking up about 6,500, parking a little over 40,000, and apartments the remaining 140,000. Seattle firm Johnson Braund is serving as project architect.

The plans also call for the demolition of the current apartment building on site, a 66-unit complex built in the late 1940s, and designed by architect Fred J. Rogers. The building was sold earlier this year to First and Roy LP.

As part of last fall’s rezone of the neighborhood, the site’s maximum building height was raised from 40 to 65 feet.

Comments on site planning and design issues may be submitted through Aug. 14 via email to, or to City of Seattle – SDCI – PRC, 700 5th Avenue, Suite 2000, PO Box 34019, Seattle, WA 98124-4019.
