Attend Monday meeting to hear directly from – and speak to – the CVS and Toll Brothers developers

Posted on September 11th, 2013 by Laura Fonda

Two of the most popular (contentious) posts from the past month covered proposed developments on Queen Anne – a proposed CVS pharmacy and a proposed Toll Brothers townhouse development at the Seattle Children’s Home site.

If you’re interested, passionate, or just curious about these key developments that will certainly make a mark on our neighborhood, be sure to attend Monday’s Queen Anne Community Council committee meeting.

The QACC’s Land Use Review and Planning Committee (LURC) has two presentations on the agenda – and note that representatives from the developers will be on hand to pitch these. The meeting will be at the Queen Anne Manor, 100 Crockett St, at 7pm on Monday, September 16th.

The presenters have 20 minutes to present their project, then the LURC committee will comment and ask questions. Following the LURC discussion, the floor will be open for public comments and questions.

Here’s the agenda and relevant materials:

7pm-8pm: Velmeir Company, CVS Developer

CVS “Preferred” design

Velmeir will present their proposal for the construction of a 16,000 square foot, one-story CVS pharmacy in Uptown at corner of Mercer St and Queen Anne Ave N.  They presented their preliminary design to the Design Review Board during an EDG (Early Design Guidance) conference several months ago. Per the QACC: “Velmeir and their architects have advanced the design and now LURC will review the project.”

8-9pm: The Toll Brothers, 66 townhomes on the Seattle Children’s Home property

Toll Brothers Proposed Plan

Proposed Toll Brothers plan

The Toll Brothers developer has purchased the 2.25 acre property that has been the home for over 100 years to Seattle Children’s Home.  Toll Brothers has preliminary plans to demolish the existing buildings and replace them with 66 townhouses, including interior driveways. LURC held an introductory meeting with Toll Brothers about 3 months ago. In the meantime they have advanced their design to a point where LURC will review the project.

Whether you’re concerned or curious, the presentations and opportunity for public comment is not to be missed!
