Tukwila residents can give their opinion to the City Council about a proposal to build a pair of attached, 17-story buildings featuring a hotel and either condos or apartments in the Southcenter District.
People can voice their approval, disapproval or other opinions at 7 p.m. Monday, March 11 in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 6200 Southcenter Blvd.
The council is considering whether to approve an ordinance to approve and authorize a development agreement with South Center Wa., LLC that would allow the buildings to exceed the current zoning height limits of 115 feet and contain residential units, which are not allowed under existing zoning.
The buildings would be the highest in the city at about 180 feet tall and comprise approximately 170 hotel rooms and 280 residential units, according to city documents. The developer wants to build the towers at 223 Andover Park E., the former Circuit City site.
