Now that it's not pouring rain, excavation has begun on the new Shoreline Apartments at the corner of 15th NE and NE 175th in North City.

In this view from the south, you can see the extent of the excavation so far. They're about two weeks behind their original schedule, but preliminary stages are always weather dependent. They may be able to make up time later.

  • Full scale excavation will begin on/around 2/20
  • Structural concrete pours will begin around the middle of April and are scheduled to be complete by middle/end of August
  • Framing starts middle of August
  • Completion middle of December, 2019

The building will have 243 apartments.

The site was the former location of the North City Post Office.

The loss of the trees on the corner of 15th and 175th is a great loss for our neighborhood.

drive by it every day, to and from work. Still not happy about this. Not at all.

243 apartments, but not 243 parking spaces. This will have a huge impact on the neighborhood.

Margaret is right. It will be sad to see those dozen or so trees go but fear not as there will be no less than 53 beautiful new trees planted in their place. A gain for the neighborhood!

ABinLFP is also correct. There are not 243 parking spaces. There are, in fact, 267 parking spaces, all on 2 levels under the buildings.

The way I see it, instead of a post office building and a parking lot with barbed wire fencing that was an eyesore at the main entry point to North City, we are getting a beautiful, new residential development to house our future neighbors and possibly ourselves. It will make me happy when I drive by knowing that my community is a vibrant one and one that welcomes change for the better!
