Insight Development Tinkers with Layout for “Lockwood” Apartment Complex Near SE Safeway
by Larry Janezich
The apartment complex in the 1300 block of E Street, SE, known as the “Bowie Site” has a new name: Lockwood. Insight Development, who is developing the Buchanan School Site across the street, has plans to modify the plan for the building, and new city regulations require more intense review of changes to projects.
Insight wants to decrease the number of apartments from 153 to 145 and increase the number of 2 – 3 bedroom homes. Two to the 3 bedroom units will be designated affordable, under the city’s Inclusionary Zoning requirements. Insight also requested changes in the design features for some of the project’s windows and balconies. The Committee, chaired by Commissioner Nick Burger, voted 7 – 0 to approve a motion to support the changes, and the application was placed on the consent calendar for the next meeting of the full ANC, Tuesday, June 13, at 7:00pm in Hill Center.
