This building replaced an old wood-frame, eight unit apartment building in industrial Ballard that had burned beyond repair. The multi-family residential use was grandfathered in by code, but the new building had to be bound to the original structure's footprint size and location, gross square footage and height. We were able to negotiate with the city to allow the footprint to ‘grow' eighteen inches to the west property line and to allow the vertical circulation to be placed outside the footprint, allowing us to maximize habitable space. We were also able, per code, to add dormers that were allowed to exceed the previous existing height that created space for lofts in the four upper units and a much more interesting look & feel.
