SEATTLE-Quality Food Centers Inc. is seeking a master use permit for development of a mixed-use project on the site of a former grocery store operation at 39th & Stone Way, between the Wallingford and Freemont neighborhoods.

David Van Skike, the city planner handling the application, tells GlobeSt.com that QFC is seeking approvals to develop a 35,000-sf store topped by 26 residential units. It is one of only a few mixed-use projects involving a grocery store in recent years, he says, and its proposed location is stirring controversy. “This is a fairly large mixed-use project in neighborhood that has not had a tremendous amount of mixed-use development,” says Van Skike.

The existing vacant building on the site, previously operated as a grocery store, is a one-story structure. QFC’s proposal is to raze the building and build a four-story structure. Van Skike says the main entrance would be off Stone Way, with another entrance off 40th and an additional driveway on 39th. The project’s designer is Portland, Ore.-based Sienna Architecture.

QFC officials declined comment. A public hearing is scheduled for Aug. 29.
