Tonight Alliance Realty Partners of Seattle will show its plans for a 337-unit apartment building at 1001 James St., near Harborview Hospital.

The 1.4-acre sloped site is bounded by Terry, Jefferson, James and Boren Avenue.

The 312,000-square-foot project called Broadstone First Hill will have six to seven floors of apartments above about 5,000 square feet of restaurant/pub space at the corner of Jefferson Street and Terry Avenue. A courtyard will be on the second level, with a breezeway facing Terry.

Residents will get a rooftop deck with outdoor kitchen, seating and a fireplace. There also will be green space on the roof and a dog area.

Parking for 280 cars will be on two below-grade levels. There also will be 100 bike storage spaces in the garage, and a “gear lounge” with space for cleaning and repairing bikes on the first floor.

Two pocket parks are planned.

Documents submitted to the city said the project will “activate” Terry Avenue, which is a green street, and help make the area more attractive for pedestrians.

Broadstone First Hill will be finished in brick to reflect other brick buildings in the neighborhood. There also will be CMU, Ceraclad siding, fiber cement siding and metal trim.

An apartment building and surface parking lot will be demolished.

Tonight's meeting starts at 8 p.m. in Pigott 304 classroom at Seattle University.

Encore Architects of Seattle is listed as the architect and Berger Partnership of Seattle as the landscape architect.
