An apartment project has been proposed that would put 150 units on an underdeveloped site near the Mount Baker Link station.
Carl Haglund of Columbia City Condos wants to build the seven-story building at 3208 Claremont Ave. S., about one block south of the intersection of Rainier Avenue South and Martin Luther King Jr. Way South.
Four single-family houses would be demolished. The site is zoned for buildings up to 85 feet high.
It would have about 6,700 square feet of commercial space at street level, long-term parking for 48 bicycles, and 110 spaces for cars at and below grade.
Vehicle access would be from an alley on the east side of the building.
A street-level patio would be built at the north end of the site, facing MLK Way.
A mix of 22 studios, 26 one-bedroom units and 98 open one-bedroom units are planned, as well as four live-work units. A meeting room would be on the second floor, and exercise rooms are planned for each of the remaining residential floors.
The roof would have a 3,600-square-foot sun deck and a planted area.
Mark Travers Architect is the designer, and Glenn Takagi is the landscape architect.
Carl Haglund owns and manages apartment properties throughout Rainier Valley.
A Seattle design review board will hold a design guidance meeting for the project at 8 p.m. today at Rainier Arts Center, at 3515 S. Alaska St.
