Intracorp is planning to buy and redevelop the 1.17-acre Acme Poultry site at 1029 S. Jackson St. in the International District.
The proposed seven-story, 321-unit building will have its second and likely final design review next week. That meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 10 at Rainier Arts Center, 3515 S. Alaska St.
Tiscareno Associates has designed a C-shaped structure for the midblock property, with a landscaped courtyard facing west.
A “market passage” pedestrian connector will run along the east side, leading to South King Street. About 12,000 square feet of retail and commercial space, arranged in small bays, will face Jackson and the passageway. Tenants will enter on Jackson.
The unit mix and average size aren't specified. Most appear to be studios or smaller open one-bedrooms. Some units will have terraces. No roof deck is planned.
Parking for 177 vehicles will be on one level below grade, to be accessed from South King Street. A bike room will have 108 stalls.
The overall project size is estimated at 276,000 square feet, though it's unclear if that includes the parking.
The team also include Terracon Consultants, geotechnical engineer; GroundSupport, shoring engineer; Bush, Roed & Hitchings, surveyor and civil engineer; Nakano Associates, landscape architect; and YT Engineers, structural. No general contractor is listed.
In addition to design review, the project needs approval from the International Special Review District board. Intracorp says it hopes to have all permits and permissions in place by September, after which construction could begin.
Azose Commercial Properties will sell the property for the Polack family, which has owned it for over six decades.
Tiscareno calls the project Acme Farms, though that may not be its final name.
