Daniels Real Estate and LMN Architects will bring their 800 Columbia plans back before the design review board tonight for what they hope is recommendation to move forward.
A long time ago (three years), a different developer was approved to build a 30-story tower on this First Hill spot but it never happened. Daniels swooped in and purchased the site. Originally envisioned as a 284-unit building, the 30-story tower has settled on approximately 287 units with four levels of below grade parking, one level of lobby/ building services, and one level of roof deck amenities. 72 bike stalls are also included in the plans.
In addition, this current proposal retains the originally-approved Open Space Park as a feature of the grounds. The nearly 9,000 square-foot park is a two-tiered open space that will be “a significant public benefit.”
