Martin Selig Real Estate made some changes to its design for a 12-story apartment building next to the Olympic Sculpture Park, saying it has “quieted” the “folded veil” concept for the facade that mimics the zig-zag path running through the park.
Design documents show the building at 3031 Western Ave. will step down from 12 stories to 10 on the west side. It will have 100 units and 71 parking spaces.
The exterior has been changed from perforated metal with eight folds, to glass with a metallic inner layer and only two folds.
A design review meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. Aug. 5 at City Hall, 600 Fifth Ave.
Perkins+Will is designing the project.
Martin Selig Real Estate has proposed several different projects for the site over the years. This one is set back farther from the street with an emphasis on enhancing the entrance with landscaping. The team wants to plant native trees and shrubs similar to plants in the sculpture park.
Finishes will be condo quality, and there will be a floor with indoor and outdoor spaces including a 5,500-square-foot rooftop terrace.
