The plan for the preliminary design elements for the next massive preservation and development project in Pike/Pine have been released to the public for the first time this week. Next Wednesday, the Legacy Pine project will take its first steps in front of the East Design Review Board. We’ll have more on the review session soon but, given the quickly dwindling count of structures like the auto-row era buildings involved in the project that have been home most recently to the likes of REI, Value Village and The Stranger, CHS thought we’d get word out about this review early — and ask you what you think.
We reported on the longtime landowner’s office-focused plans for the project in October:
Legacy’s vision is to create a true mixed-use project with office, ground floor retail, as well as residential components.
We believe, if or when we proceed, that our approach and commitment to the architecture of the existing structures will be a tribute to the neighborhood and its history. The project has the ability to bring more day time workers/uses to support existing retail and restaurants, in addition to providing Capitol Hill’s growing businesses the opportunity to expand their footprint within the community. We also included this preliminary “glamour shot” rendering of the Ankrom Moison-designed building:
When we broke the news on the project in September, the developers told CHS planning was only in “the incubation stage.” Clearly, that status has changed.

Specifications and more renderings of the preferred basic structure of the building — its massing — are below.
