This February 15, 2022 LURC meeting will consider a presentation for a project proposed for E. Cherry and 23rd Avenue (701 23rd Avenue — the current site of Flowers Just 4 U).  A contract rezone of the site is being sought to increase the development capacity — from the current NC1 zone with a 40 foot height limit.  The rezone, if granted, would allow a building higher than 40 feet.   

This project has been the subject of earlier LURC meetings but there is a new design proposal that differs from the previous design in significant respects.  The developer and architects are seeking input from the public on the proposed design changes.

The project, known as Acer House, proposes a mixed-use building with approximately 120 apartments, including affordable housing, and up to 8 retail spaces on the ground floor.  The developer describes the project as a “truly anti-racist private sector development.”  The aesthetic of the proposed design is described as “Afro-futurism”  For the City of Seattle Department of Construction and Inspection file documents, at the DCI Web page enter project 3037717
