The Aegis Five Corners facility proposed for 3200 N.E. 45th St. is getting taller.

Aegis Living will show plans on Monday, July 17 for what is now a six-story structure, which would exceed the current 40-foot zoning by using the HALA incentives and a contract rezone.

The first design review meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. July 17 at Good Shepherd Center, 4649 Sunnyside Ave. N. That meeting has moved up a week from its previously announced date.

Aegis hasn't yet bought the 31,812-square-foot-site at the Five Corners intersection near Laurelhurst, now occupied by a vacant former Baskin-Robbins store and other small businesses. Three parcels are separately owned.

The preferred design by Ankrom Moisan Architects is for a 55-foot-tall building with 137 units (both assisted-living and memory-care), 65 parking spaces on one level below grade and a 1,300-square-foot cafe that would be open to the public.

The parking entrance and a circular drop-off area would be accessed from the north side of the site. Pedestrian entrances would face south, and the Queen Bee Cafe would occupy the sharp west corner of the site.

Total project size, including the parking, is about 148,300 square feet.

Aegis says that, “The average age of our residents is 82 years, [and] 80 percent come from a three- to five-mile radius around the community. Most residents at Five Corners will ‘move over' from their nearby residences where they have friends and family and roots.” This makes the location particularly attractive given its proximity to University Village and Laurelhurst.

Fazio Associates is the landscape architect for Aegis Five Corners.
