There were maybe six neighbors who attended. This is the second of two public meetings, and they got their recommendation from the Board. Next DPD issues its decision.
I think it's generally a successful design. They focused a lot on the courtyard facing 37th Ave S. There's a residential lobby on the NE corner, and live-work units further to the west along Hudson.
I'd originally suggested the NE corner should be commercial, but that didn't get any traction with the Board. As the lobby, it's gotta be on the same level as the rest of the apartments. Given the site's topography, that means the units along 37th are at the same level as the sidewalk. And the architect felt that in order to make for an ample courtyard, they couldn't set those units back. It feels cramped to me, and I bet it'll result in drawn blinds. I would have preferred front stoops.
But that's past, and the project is largely OK. Not sure when Harbor aims to build it.
