So just a reminder that we will be having a meeting next week, Tuesday, September 29th. I am pleased to announce that Point32 will be presenting to of their upcoming projects at this meeting: the BelRoy Addition and the Bullitt Foundation Project. The majority of the meeting will be given to this topic (30min for each project, 30 min for questions) and with the extra time we will probably debrief on the TOD Design Charrette and talk about any other upcoing opportunities. Below is a bit of info on each of the projects that Point32 will be sharing with us.
The BelRoy is a historic apartment complex at 711 Bellevue Ave E. constructed in the 1920's. Point32 is proposing to to add two additional buildings with 60+ new units next to the Historic Belroy, maintaining the architectural integrity and enhancing the pedestrian-scape. There is also talk of adding a P-Patch on the Western slope of the property. Their presentation to us will come a week before the present to the Design Review board on October 7th. For more info on the building and project, see my article in CHS.
The Bullitt Foundation recently announced that they plan to construct a new HQ at Madison and 14th Ave (current site of C.C. Attles). The Bullitt Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to protecting the natural environment, says they are dedicated to not only reaching the highest certification of LEED, but also creating a Living Building that will set a new standard for Pacific Northwest Green Architecture. Point32 will be the developer and they will share how the plan to accomplish these ambitious goals.
Location and Time TBD but I hope everyone can make this meeting, it should be really exciting!
