Plans for current Queen Anne Liquor & Wine site set for design review

Proposal calls for eight-story mixed-use development

A stretch of First Avenue North now home to Queen Anne Liquor & Wine, Chutneys, and the former Floyd’s Place is slated for one of the first post-upzone developments in Uptown.

An early design guidance meeting is set for Feb. 7 at the Queen Anne Community Center (1901 1st Ave. W.) with the West Design Review Board on plans for an eight-story mixed-use development with 132 residential units and just over 5,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

That meeting starts at 8 p.m., after the board reviews a proposal for another eight-story complex at 631 Queen Anne Ave. N. backed by the same real estate development company — Vibrant Cities — and design firm Jackson | Main Architecture.

Meanwhile, the preferred option for the development at 513 1st Ave. N. calls for 78 studios, 14 open-one bedroom, 16 classic one-bedroom, and 24 two-bedroom units. Parking for 31 vehicles would be provided.

As part of the Uptown rezone, the site was included in an area where maximum building heights more than doubled, from 40 to 85 feet.
