First Hill is one step closer to getting a 30-story apartment complex now that the East Design Review Board has approved plans for the Eighth and Columbia tower. The building will include 287 apartments ranging from studio to 2-BR as well as 234 parking spaces and a 9,000-square-foot neighborhood park (with bocce!) on the corner of Eighth and Columbia. Weber Thompson is the designer and Alecta is the developer. An Alecta official told urbnlivn the building could end up being offered as condos, but that won’t be decided just yet.
