The Wiggen & Sons Funeral Home has called 2003 N.W. 57th Street home since 1946. That should come to an end soon when Mill Creek Residential gets approval to build a six-story complex with 118 residential units and 14 live/work units called Modera Ballard on the spot. The developer, along with architect Tiscareno Associates, brings their plans before the design review board for recommendation this evening. Mill Creek is looking to demolish the standing building, designed by noted architects Elizabeth Ayer and Rolland Lamping, but must wait until the Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board determines whether or not it's a city landmark. The project may be scrapped if so. However, if it does move forward, the plan is to begin construction in September. Plans call for units ranging from 530 sf studios to 1,200 sf 3-BRs, which is bigger than most apartment projects going up in the area.
