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.
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
