As part of their ongoing expansion plans, University Village is getting close to a recommendation on their latest pending arrival, a four-level, 47K square-foot retail building at the corner of NE University Village St. and 26th Avenue NE. Going before the design review board on December 1, plans call for three retail spots within the building as well as a small roof terrace. Original plans approved in 2008 focused more on a loading dock setup while revised plans, which include a pedestrian plaza along the north side and water feature along the south, make the entire area much more shopper-friendly. Check out renderings of the fancy new structure and start wondering which upscale retailers you can barely afford to shop at will call this place home.
