The Seattle Department of Planning and Development (DPD) has approved the Master Use Permit (MUP) for the Aegis facility development in Queen Anne. There is a 14-day appeal period for the permit, which ends on Thursday, July 24. After the appeal period, the DPD will issue the MUP.

The building will be a 124-unit senior and memory-care facility next to the Queen Anne Bowl (2900 Third Ave. W.) The design features an outdoor porch area that overlooks the park, a decorative dome and a loading dock. The latter was highly contested during the design-review process.

The approval of the MUP had conditions that are typical of a MUP decision, said DPD spokesperson Bryan Stevens in an email.

The developers have already submitted their construction permits, which are under review. To begin construction, they will need to have approved MUP and construction permits.

During one of the Design Review Board meetings, Aegis vice president of development Michael Derr said he hoped to start construction over the summer, pending permit approval. Construction is expected to take 18 months.
