The space where two vacant storefronts, many neighbors say, have for years maligned the curb appeal of the 2400 block of 32nd Avenue West, is poised for a new look.
The Daily Journal of Commerce reports that a 36,800-square-foot building at 2406 32nd Ave. W. is in the works. The brick building will feature up to 28 residences, 3,500-square-feet of street-level commercial space and 33 spaces of underground parking.
Plans call for 24 to 28 apartments over 3,500 square feet of street level commercial space. Underground parking accessed from an alley would hold 33 stalls.
The structure will replace two 1940s, single-story commercial buildings that?Terry Yoshikawa owns. Yoshikawa, who lives in Magnolia, recently filed plans with the city to build the new mixed-use space.
There will be a public meeting about the property at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 18, at the Queen Anne Community Center at 1901 First Ave. W.
