The Alki Tavern closed its doors after 37 years back in 2013. It's fate was sealed when Korean developer YMSA purchased the lot, as well as five other adjoining ones. Thursday evening, they'll bring plans for the 66,250 square foot mixed-use structure filling in those lots before the design review board for a potential recommendation. The sleek, six-story complex at 1307 Harbor Avenue SW will include 15 apartments, 13,800 sf. of office space, 8,000 sf. of light manufacturing space, 2,500 sf. of ground-level retail, a 2,800 sf. restaurant and 41 below-grade parking spaces. A breezeway will separate the restaurant from the rest of the ground-level space while a bridge will connect the two buildings from above. The black, grey and white complex's big windows should make for a bright attraction from the water and the building seems likely to attract some intriguing tenants. Miller Hull Partnership and Rhodes Architecture & Light are working on the project.
