There was supposed to be a 92-unit mixed-use building on the southwest corner of 23rd & Union by now. The long-gestating project, acquired in a $2.3M deal, has been biding its time for a while now. According to a statement by developer Lake Union Partners, that biding is over...
As you probably know we are moving forward with the development at the corner of 23rd and Union in the Central District. The site was formerly owned by Jim Mueller (we closed on the property in late December) and we are planning to start construction this August on the 92-unit mixed-use apartment building with approximately 4,000sf of retail and 74 underground parking stalls at the southwest corner of 23rd Ave E & E Union St. The project will cost $20M according to initial reports.
Also, expect to see movement on an affordable apartment project from Capitol Hill Housing across the street. This ain't your grandpa's 23rd & Union intersection anymore.
