New development means Uptown Kidd Valley will be no more

Posted on June 24th, 2013 by Laura Fonda

Every week the Land Use bulletin from the Seattle Department of Planning and Development (DPD) comes out and I scan it for any developments of note on Queen Anne – but somehow, this one didn’t come through in our updates. Luckily, one of our readers clued us in to the future of the lot that now houses Kidd Valley (thanks, Greg!).

According to a filing with DPD, a representative from the Velmier Companies applied for the project review at 531 Queen Anne Ave N (where Kidd Valley is located). The application is for a one-story, 16,000 foot retail pharmacy with 33 underground parking spaces. No official word, but the Velmier Companies web site lists CVS as a client.

An early design review is set for July 17th at the Queen Anne Community Center, room #1, 6:30pm. No word on what will happen to Kidd Valley (relocation or otherwise).
