People familiar with talks between the Pike Pine Urban Neighborhood Council and Alliance Realty say the developer is ready to unveil a new plan for its 1020 E Union project that will include preservation of the 1915-built Davis Hoffman building at 10th and Union.
The new plan will be unveiled to the public next week at a community meeting held at PPUNC member and Capitol Hill developer Liz Dunn’s 12th and Pike coworking space, Agnes Underground on Tuesday, September 25th from 5 to 7p.
Alliance had been struggling to move a plan forward through the city’s design review process that called for demolition of the building currently home to Capitol Hill Housing and the Pravda Studios event space even as it planned to benefit from the neighborhood’s preservation incentive program. In August, we reported on PPUNC’s opposition to the plan and efforts to stop Alliance from tearing down the old auto row-era structure to make way for its new seven-story, mixed-use apartment project.
We’ve asked Alliance for an update on the situation and will add more if we hear back.
in this breakout provided during design review by Alliance, the developer described the four structures that are currently part of the parcels set for development. Initial planning called for only the Madison Park Greetings office and garage structures at 11th and Union to be preserved.
