Tonight Community Meeting On Proposed Development Next To Laurelhurst Condos On Sand Point Way

4529 Sand Point Way N, Seattle, WA 98105

Tonight at 6pm, there will be a Community meeting about the proposed project at 4529 Sand Point Way NE.  

One neighbor told the Laurelhurst Blog "The development will have a large impact on the entire neighborhood."

This vacant parcel is where the Bike Shop used to be until it was demolished in 2016.  Currently, the El Camion food truck sits on part of the property and in previous years a Christmas tree farm was on the south end of the property.

The applicant, listed as Shilshole Development, has a permit on file with the City to construct a 5-story mixed use building with 9,000 square feet of commercial space, 30 residential units and parking for about 40 vehicles.  

In 2007, another developer requested a construction permit, proposing  4-story mixed use building with 30 residential units, but was cancelled in 2011.

At tonight's meeting, which will be held at the Mountaineers Club at Magnuson Park, there will be an opportunity to give input to the project team and architects regarding the "vision and approach."

King County lists the property as sold on November 6, 2019 for $3,500,000. The lot size is listed as 16,391 square feet and .38 of acre.

The property was last sold in 2008 for $1,600,000.

Very close to this proposed development, Aegis Living, will begin construction of their assisted living and memory care facility, which would be built at "Five Corners, where the former Baskin Robbins site, which closed September 2015 was located (3200 NE 45th Street).

Aegis Living is planning on a building a 135 unit, six story building (55-70 feet) with 53 parking stalls on a lot currently zoned for 40 feet. Permit # 3025056 will require City approval of a "contract re-zone" to build as requested.
