On April 4, 2018, City Council continued its work on the CC2035 Plan with a vote on Block 33 (between NW Couch and Davis, and 4th and 5th Avenues) in New Chinatown/Japantown. Commissioners had a lengthy discussion about various potential amendments. Ultimately, they voted 4 to 1 to support a base height of 125 feet with the ability to earn bonus height up to 160 feet on the western half block. In order to access the bonus height, the applicant will be required to use the affordable housing bonus.
City Council also held a public hearing on a final list of potential minor amendments related to bird-safe glazing adjacent to ecoroofs, historic resource transfers and height limits in the North Pearl. They closed the oral hearing on these minor amendments but welcome written comments until April 11 at 4:30 p.m.
On Wednesday April 11 at 4:30 p.m. time certain, Council is expected to vote on the remaining amendments. Read the related memo.
