City to Hold Public Hearing to Discuss Developer Requests for River Run Apartments

River Run Apartment Site Plan

The City will hold a public hearing at the Planning Commission meeting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, December 13th to discuss the developer’s request to increase the maximum number of units allowed within a stand-alone building on River Run Apartments located at the NW corner of 436th Avenue SE and SE 136th Street. 

According to the City staff report, the developer submitted a development agreement to allow the relief from NBMC 18.10.040 (11) Multifamily Maximum Building Size, which limits each multi-family building to a maximum of 10 units. The applicant proposed increasing the maximum number of stacked flat apartment units allowed per building to 12 units. None of the building sizes will change from the current allowed size and height.  

This would result in three fewer townhouse buildings, making the project more economical.  The proposed developer agreement also increases the number of affordable housing units from 25 to 28 and increases the length of time those units will remain affordable from 12 years to 24 years. It would also reduce the total number of apartment units to 128 from 129.

The City’s Public Notice about the hearing states: “The reduction in number of buildings reduces the visual impact and tree retention impact and doesn’t affect the rest of the environmental review which was previously completed.”
