The tiny apartment boom has gained popularity in areas like Capitol Hill, and now the Eastlake neighborhood might be getting a new Micro Apartment complex as well. Johnson Carr LLC development team has submitted a proposal to build a room-share style apartment complex. Similar projects have gained popularity due to affordability, and are set up a little different than your typical apartment; with rooms organized around centrally located common spaces on one floor. Residents share common kitchen and laundry facilities, but individual units have their own bathrooms and kitchenettes.
Johnson Car LLC is proposing a 5 story project, with 115 units at 2820 Eastlake Avenue E, on a site that currently has a house and a small apartment building that will have to be demolished. The developer has teamed up with Janette Architecture | Planning | Design, and a Seattle design review board meeting was scheduled last night to discuss the proposal.
