Developer Evergreen Lodging and architect Johnson Braund will present their plans for a seven-story building at 4510 11th Avenue NE in the University District to the design review board tonight for potential recommendation.
The proposal calls for a mixed-use complex tentatively called MOD Studios. The building features private and shared rooftop terraces, three levels of below grade parking, 201 studio units, outdoor public space, and a commercial arcade/connection to the adjacent Marriott Residence Inn Hotel across the alley.
The proposed has established goals to create apartments, and commercial spaces that encourage a community to gather socially. Inspired by the old charm and growing character of "The Ave" it is intended to provide opportunities character of a place, that evokes a desire to make this spot a part of their normal routine....
The parking space includes 175 stalls and there's 3,900 square-feet of commercial space on the ground floor. Plans appear to note that a cafe/bakery and fitness center are already planned to take over that commercial space.
