Early view of Safeway expansion shows parking below the new 50,000 sq ft store

Posted on July 8th, 2017 by Laura Fonda

Following up on our post on the planned Upper Queen Anne Safeway redevelopment, we have a view of the current site plan from the Seattle Department of Construction & Inspections. As previously reported, the plan has the current store footprint doubling from 25,000 square feet to 50,000 square feet. It also includes 4 stories of residential space above the storefront on the first floor.

Per the initial site plans, the new Safeway would extend to the sidewalks on both Crockett and Queen Anne Ave N, with underground parking replacing the current above-ground parking. The entrance would be across from the Trader Joe’s garage parking entrance on Crockett. Pedestrian entrances would be located on Queen Anne Ave N and at the corner of Queen Anne Ave N & Crockett St.

Please note, this site plan could change, but this is what has been publicly filed to date:

The current plan is to break ground in 2018. As more information becomes available, we’ll post it.

    I’m wondering how this will effect traffic flow, pedestrian safety and increased traffic must be addressed. 1st North is a 2-way one lane and has the two pre-schools across the street. Drivers will lweave through residential neighborhood streetsor suffer through end less stop lights on the QA Ave.
