Stone34 has been endorsed by FNC. Their community outreach liaison Linda Mitchell writes, “The Design Review Board approved the Stone34 project at the end of March, finding that the project meets design guidelines and the goals of the Living Building Pilot Program. Thanks again to all who came to the many review meetings to express your support for the project!”
In July the Seattle City Council will review changes to the City’s Living Building Pilot Program to “make it possible for more of these deep green buildings to be built (including Stone34). Once approved, Skanska will move forward with ground breaking on the new Brooks Corporate Headquarters and flagship store.”
If you agree, and want Stone34 built, let the City Council know that the proposed zoning changes to the LBPP are reasonable and necessary to encourage more deep green buildings like Stone34 in our city. Land Use Committee members are Richard Conlin, Chair (206-684-8805); Tim Burgess, Vice Chair (206-684-8806): and Mike O’Brien (206-684-8800).
Stone34 will update the community on Tuesday, June 26th at 6pm at the Fremont Abbey (4272 Fremont Ave. N.). “Supporters are invited to join us for appetizers and libations to learn more about Stone34, the Living Building Pilot Program, the upcoming Council meetings, and how you can help. On Thursday, June 28th at noon at GGLO Architects (1301 First Ave on the Harbor Steps in downtown Seattle) Great City will host a brown bag panel discussion on the unique challenges of green building development with Skanska EVP Lisa Picard, and Brooks Sports CEO Jim Weber. This event is free and open to the public.”
