368 Kirkland units marching through design review

The large building would have two main courtyards.

Next Monday will mark another design review for Modera Bridle Trails in Kirkland. The five-story, 368-unit apartment project will eventually replace TechCity Bowl, formerly Totem Bowl, at 13033 N.E. 70th Place . Weber Thompson is the architect for Mill Creek Residential, which hasn't yet acquired the nearly 3-acre site. The DJC first reported the plan about a year ago.

The large building would wrap around the Pagliacci building on the corner of 130th Avenue Northeast. Its irregular footprint features multiple courtyards and wings. The building would also step back in height at various levels, presenting three and four stories to certain aspects.

Three levels of mostly underground parking are to have 444 stalls. Tenants would have 31 bike stalls. The garage entry would be on 130th, the building's west side.

Units mostly appear to be large, with one and two bedrooms. About 36 would be affordable, per city requirements.

About 7,000 square feet of retail/commercial space would face 70th, on the building's north side. Interestingly, the architect says that some future commercial space could be added to the building's southeast corner. That's now programmed as residential amenity space — facing the Chase Bank east of the shared private driveway.

A roof deck would have 951 square feet. That, the parking and amenities contribute to a listed total project size of 580,897 square feet.

Mill Creek typically builds its own projects. The team also includes Bush Roed & Hitchings, surveyor. Weber Thompson is also the landscape architect.
