Plans appear to be moving forward for a three-story, 43-unit apartment building at the corner of First Avenue North and Crockett Street in Queen Anne.

The Arbor Place Building, from developer Arbor Space LLC, would occupy the site that currently serves as the parking lot behind the American Cancer Society at 2120 First Ave. N. 

Design concepts were available to community members at a site walk on Friday, Sept. 28. The building is being designed by architect Skidmore Janette.

The developer’s preferred design plan for the 16,005-square-foot site features an entryway along First Avenue North, a facade facing Crockett Street, and underground parking with up to 16 spaces. Garage access would be made available off the existing 12-foot easement between the ACS building and the  Arbor Place site.

The building would stand the maximum height of 30 feet, with another 5 feet allowed for a pitched roof. Side setbacks would average 7 feet with a minimum of 5 feet, while the south setback would be 5 feet. The existing trees along the sidewalk area will remain on the property.

The American Cancer Society building will remain a neighbor to the new apartment building. Brian Regan, the developer and site owner, wrote the landmark nomination for the ACS building.

The Georgian-style building was built in 1923, and formerly served as the nurses’ quarters for the Children’s Orthopedic Hospital. It has been home to the American Cancer Society since the 1980s.

Master use applications for the project have been filed, and Regan plans to file building permit documents later this year.

Regan said the current plan calls for construction to begin at the end of 2019.
