Hunters Capital and Studio Meng Strazzara are proposing a five-story apartment building with retail and 27 underground parking spaces.

Following last December's property sale, there's a new redevelopment plan for Hilltop Service Station, at 523 15th Ave. E. on Capitol Hill.

Hunters Capital and architect Studio Meng Strazzara have filed an early plan for a five-story apartment building with 75 units, about 5,000 square feet of retail and 27 underground parking spaces.

The site is on the southwest corner of 15th and East Mercer Street. The station stopped selling gas in 2017, but the garage, which has been in operation since 1966, still appears to be open.

The property is on the Department of Ecology environmental cleanup list.

It totals 13,731 square feet, and appears bound for a city upzone from 40 to 55 feet.

Parking would be accessed from Mercer. There would also be 20 bike stalls. The proposed building has a nominal value of $16 million.

Through an LLC, Hunters Capital paid $2.75 million for the site.

Hunters also recently acquired the nearby QFC property for over $11 million. No new plans have been filed there.
