Commentary: CID residents express concern about 14-story project at ISRD design meeting

With 50 projects in the pipeline and Mandatory Housing Affordability (MHA) legislation under review for the CID, the Seattle City Council may consider amendments to increase the authority of the ISRD board for future projects. The developer of the project on 8th and Lane hopes to begin the project this summer, with the hotel likely to be a Springhill Suites Marriott. The CID Coalition is asking for the project to be denied, an impact study to be completed, a moratorium on market rate development, and a public hearing before the ISRD makes its final recommendations.
