Developer Rod McClaskey and architect Clark Design Group will bring their plans for a seven-story mixed-use building at 1818 Harvard Avenue in Capitol Hill before the design review board on November 9 for early design guidance.
Known as Sola on Harvard, the proposal calls for 69 hotel rooms on four floors and 42 small efficiency dwelling units (SEDUs) on the three floors above. There would be a lobby/amenity space on the first floor and 19 parking spaces underground.
Per the preferred scheme, the residential units would face the north in order to enhance privacy while a courtyard would be oriented south for sun exposure. Residential units are expected to average 375 square feet.
Next door to Seattle Central College and right around the corner from the Capitol Hill light rail station, the location is pretty prime. The existing 12-unit apartment building on the site will be demolished to make way.
