114 apartments eyed for Greenwood clinic site

Real Estate Editor

Ballard Community Hospital merged with Swedish Medical Center in 1992, effectively ending the history of the small neighborhood medical provider, which was established in 1928. With the merger, Swedish inherited various properties, including a clinic at 415 N. 85th St., which now appears to be for sale.

A prospective buyer, Build Urban, has filed an early apartment redevelopment plan for the midblock site, which totals about 18,500 square feet.

The six-story building could have 114 small efficiency dwelling units, with a total project size of around 46,000 square feet.

Jackson Main Architects prepared the early plan. No parking is indicated.

The apartments would occupy only the north portion of the L-shaped lot, which extends south through the block to North 84th Street. The site has split zoning: 55 feet on the north side, and single-family on the south.

Build Urban, led by Ed Gallaudet, does both single-family and multifamily projects, both to rent and sell.

The site is walkable to the main Greenwood commercial strip, in a recently upzoned area where several properties have recently traded. The biggest project in that neighborhood is Washington Holdings' redevelopment of the now-closed Safeway property, with 280 units and a possible new boutique grocer.

The old one-story clinic building, which dates to 1950, would be removed if the plan proceeds.
