|Gerding Edlen Development filed a land-use application to build a seven-story apartment project next to the Plymouth Pillars off-leash dog park on Capitol Hill.
The project at 1519 Minor Ave. calls for 119 units, 950 square feet of retail at Minor and Pine and at- and below-grade parking for about 32 vehicles. The mix of unit types has not been finalized, Gerding Edlen President Kelly Saito said.
Perkins + Will is designing the project, and Howard S. Wright is the general contractor. Saito estimated the construction cost at $18 million. The company would like to start construction in early 2012.
Washington Real Estate Holdings owns the 14,400-square-foot site. Saito said his company plans to close on the property purchase in December.
Portland-based Gerding Edlen is building a 118-unit apartment project at 412 Broadway on First Hill. Saito said the two projects are the company’s only current Seattle developments, but that Gerding Edlen is looking for other opportunities here.
