It’s been a long time coming, We’ve known since 2015 that a new building was being planned for the NE corner of 5th Ave NW and NW 65th Street.
The original design, see https://goo.gl/NJCet9, lacked a large retail space, which meant the loss of any future pub or restaurant at this location. Working with S+H Works, we were able to influence the design and as a result our neighborhood will have space for a restaurant, or other small/medium sized business, in the same location as the current building.
The owners/ developer are open to feedback, and have provided us with three plans that they are seeking feedback on. This is a great opportunity for neighbors to influence the look and feel of a building that most of us will see every day.
