There is quite a lot of development activity in Phinney Ridge and this will be the main topic of the October meeting.
We will hear from Homestead Land Trust with update on their two condo projects (5819 Phinney and 6109 Phinney.)
Early engagement for development of the 6010 Phinney site (current location of Chef Lao & Phinney Ridge Cleaners). Architect described the project as a "new mixed use structure, containing 1 below grade parking level and 5 above grade levels. There will be 2 commercial spaces at the ground floor, and 40 residential units above. The owner would like to propose a mix of studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom units." Cone Architecture is doing public outreach per Dept. of Neighborhoods requirements. More info and survey at www.cone-outreach.com/phinneymixeduse
Methodist Church at 302 N. 78th will be demolished and replaced with about 75 workforce, family-sized apartments, and new space for the church. The residential units distributed over 6 floors; a couple of retail spaces and a religious institution at street level; served by 18 parking spaces and some amenities in the basement. The parking lot on east side will be sold and developed separately per the presubmittal document. SDCI Record Number: 3039854-EG
