Here's the newly released construction proposal for the Bauhaus Block that would wrap a seven-story, 160-unit apartment building around the old Timken Building and Melrose Building. This is an important, controversial project that tests the city's ability to increase density while retaining the character structures that define Capitol Hill. (We've written about the project here and more recently here).

You can look at Hewitt architects' designs in this fat design packet, and here are a couple images of their preferred design:



Madison Development group will present this and other designs to the city's Design Review Board tonight.

If you care about getting this awesome block's development correct—integrating new construction with an active strip of retail, all while setting good precedent for a slew of new buildings slated for construction in Pike/Pine—you should go to the meeting. It's at 8:00 p.m. in Seattle University's Casey Building, room 500E (901 12th Ave), and you can make comments.
