A local man has filed early plans for a 111-unit all-studio apartment building at 216 Tenth Ave. near Yesler Terrace on First Hill in Seattle.
The six-story nearly 56,000-square-foot building would have an atrium or central courtyard, and no parking.
The project would replace three rental houses on the mid-block property between East Alder and Spruce streets, a little east of Harborview Medical Center and Yesler Terrace. The 14,400-square-foot site is zoned for mid-rise construction.
Owner Sammy Lee, who operates a family recycling business in Bellevue, acquired the three parcels between 2012 and 2016 for a total of just over $3 million.
Plans were filed on his behalf by a Palo Alto, California-based consultant, Vertical Product Development, and Pondera Architecture of Spokane. The project hasn't yet entered design review.
