Condo project at 502 First St. moving forward
SNOHOMISH — A mixed-use condominium development at 502 First St. is moving forward unchallenged.
Real estate developer Bob Hart recently submitted building permits for a two-story 15,100-square-foot building on east First Street at the corner of Willow Street. 
The city’s design review board earlier this spring approved Hart’s plans.
Hart’s old plans faced challenges from some residents because those plans required changing the zoning density in historic downtown.
Hart’s revised plans do not require these changes because the project is under the threshold trigger. 
The new plans call for nine condominiums and three commercial spaces whereas before the plans called for 10 condominiums and two commercial spaces.
City planning director Owen Dennison clarified the status of Hart’s project last week.
“The city reviewed the application and sent him a comment/correction letter on May 13,” Dennison said. “He has not yet re-submitted materials in response to city comments.”
Dennison said Hart’s environmental impact application described the proposal as 10 residential units and two commercial spaces. Because the 10 residential spaces exceeds the allowed density of 18 units per acre in the historic business zone, the city sent back his application with comments and corrections.
The proposal has since been revised to nine residential units and three commercial units, Dennison said.

Other projects downtown
In other news, there are plans filed to build a mixed-use development at 108 Ave. A close to the corner of First Street and A. The 1896 building once housed the Veterans of Foreign Wars Gay Jones Post 921, which moved to Everett, and currently houses a defensive driving school.
The proposed 108 Ave. A project would demolish this to make way for a three-story building with street-level retail space and two levels of apartments above.
