Rainier Court Associates and Johnson Braund bring their plans for both sides of Rainier Court IV back before the design review board tonight for what they hope is a recommendation to move forward on the affordable housing development.
The development is actually a two-parter. The West side is a four-story mixed-use structure containing 78 apartment units and 5,725 sq. ft. of commercial at street level at 3616 34th Avenue S. The East side consists of three, 2-story townhouse buildings containing a total of 20 residential units at 3603 35th Avenue S. The apartments appear to be mostly one-bedrooms with a handful of two-bedroom units included while the townhouses are all two-bedroom units.
The whole Rainier Court IV project is part of a larger urban mixed-use development, Rainier Court, which also Rainier Court I (senior housing building), Rainier Court II (affordable family housing) and Rainier Court III (apartments & townhouses).
A pedestrian promenade will run through the middle of both sections and the space will also be filled with community amenity areas and landscaping.
