When uncertainty exists as to the boundaries of any use district established on the City’s land use map(s), the following rules of construction shall apply:

A.    Where district boundaries are indicated as approximately following the centerline of streets, alleys or highways, the actual centerline shall be construed to be the boundary.

B.    Where district boundaries are indicated as running approximately parallel to the centerline of a street, the boundary line shall be construed to be parallel to the centerline of the street.

C.    Where district boundaries are indicated as approximately following lot or tract lines, the actual lot or tract lines shall be construed to be the boundary lines of such use district.

D.    Unmapped shorelands shall be considered to be within the same land use district as the adjacent upland as shown on the use district map(s).

E.    Where a public street or alley is officially vacated or abandoned, the regulations applicable to the abutting property to which the vacated portion shall revert, shall apply to such vacated or abandoned street or alley.

F.    In case uncertainty exists which cannot be determined by application of the foregoing rules, the Planning Commission shall recommend, and the City Council shall determine, the location of such use district boundaries.

G.    Shoreline Overlay (S-O) District boundaries are as described in LUC 20.25E.010, and are not subject to these rules of construction. (Ord. 4654, 6-6-94, § 2; Ord. 3145, 9-27-82, § 3)

20.10.370 Downtown (D).

A.    Purpose.

Downtown is the financial and business hub of the community. It is to be developed as an aesthetically attractive area of intense use. Toward this end, the City shall encourage the development of regional retail shopping facilities and major mixed office complexes along with specialty retail, business support services, urban residential, hotel and institutional uses. Certain areas of Downtown are to be more intensively developed in order to facilitate pedestrian circulation. Development must enhance people orientation, and provide for the needs, activities, and interests of people. The City will encourage land uses which emphasize variety, mixed uses, and unity of form within buildings or complexes. Specific land use districts have been established within the Downtown District to permit variation in use and development standards in order to implement the objectives of the Downtown Subarea Plan.

1.    Downtown-Office District 1 (Downtown-O-1). The purpose of the Downtown-O-1 Land Use District is to provide an area for the most intensive business, financial, specialized retail, hotel, entertainment, and urban residential activities. The district is limited in extent in order to provide the level of intensity needed to encourage and facilitate a significant level of transit service. Pedestrian-attracting day and nighttime activities are encouraged. Transit and pedestrian facilities linking them are encouraged; long-term parking and other automobile oriented uses are discouraged.

2.    Downtown-Office District 2 (Downtown-O-2). The purpose of the Downtown-O-2 Land Use District is to provide an area for intensive business, financial, retail, hotel, entertainment, institutional, and urban residential use to serve as a transition between the more intensive Downtown-O-1 Land Use District and the lesser intensive Downtown-Multiple Use Land Use District.

3.    Downtown-Multiple Use District (Downtown-MU). The purpose of the Downtown-MU Land Use District is to provide an area for a wide range of retail activity, low intensity offices, Downtown support services, and residential uses. Multiple uses are encouraged on individual sites, and in individual buildings, as well as broadly in the district as a whole.

4.    Downtown-Residential District (Downtown-R). The purpose of the Downtown-R Land Use District is to provide an area for the City’s most intensive urban residential uses. Limited office and retail uses are permitted secondary to residential use, in order to provide the amenity of shopping and services within easy walking distance of residential structures.

5.    Downtown-Old Bellevue District (Downtown-OB). The purpose of the Downtown-OB Land Use District is to describe the Old Bellevue area and assure compatibility of new development with the scale and intensity of the area. The social and historic qualities of this area are to be preserved.

6.    Downtown-Office and Limited Business District (Downtown-OLB). The purpose of the Downtown-OLB Land Use District is to provide an area for the location of integrated complexes made up of offices, and hotels or motels, with eating establishments and retail sales secondary to these primary uses. The district abuts and has convenient access to the I-405 Freeway.

B.    Permitted Uses.

Specific categories of uses are listed in Chart 20.10.440. LUC 20.10.400 and 20.10.420 explain Chart 20.10.440 and refer to the applicable review procedures.

C.    General Development Requirements.

Regulations applying to specific structures or activities are found listed alphabetically in Chapter 20.20 LUC; consult the alphabetical Key Word Index in the beginning of that chapter. Additional development requirements for downtown are found in Chapter 20.25 LUC.

D.    Area and dimensional requirements are found in LUC 20.25A.020.A.2; specific exceptions to the requirements in the chart are given in the sections immediately following it. All structures shall conform to these requirements. (Ord. 5496, 11-17-03, § 1; Ord. 4654, 6-6-94, § 15; Ord. 2945, 2-2-81, § 2)

20.10.375 Bel-Red.

A.    Purpose and Intent.

Bel-Red is a major mixed use employment and residential area characterized by a transit-oriented, nodal development pattern, over time replacing the area’s original low intensity light industrial and commercial past. The City will encourage land uses in the Bel-Red area which promote employment, retail and residential opportunities. More intense uses and greater heights are concentrated in designated nodal development areas along the NE 15th/16th corridor; these areas are intended to be served by high capacity transit. New development in these designated nodal areas is expected to have a transit-supportive and pedestrian-friendly form. The entire Bel-Red area will be distinguished by environmental and community amenities that serve residents and employees in the area, as well as nearby neighborhoods and the entire city. New development is expected to make significant contributions to these amenities, and to the infrastructure needed to support redevelopment.

Redevelopment of the Bel-Red area will occur over decades, and the City encourages a graceful transition of land use over time. Therefore special provisions are appropriate for existing uses that may not be part of the area’s long-term envisioned future.

1.    Bel-Red-Medical Office (Bel-Red-MO). The purpose of the Bel-Red-MO Land Use District is to provide an area for office uses, with an emphasis on medical office.

2.    Bel-Red-Medical Office Node (Bel-Red-MO-1). The purpose of the Bel-Red-MO-1 Land Use District is to provide an area for the most intense medical office uses. The district is located within the core of a nodal area, and is limited in extent in order to provide the level of intensity appropriate for areas in close proximity to the highest levels of transit service within the Bel-Red area.

3.    Bel-Red Office/Residential (Bel-Red-OR). The purpose of the Bel-Red-OR Land Use District is to provide an area for a mix of office, housing and retail uses, with office as the predominant use.

4.    Bel-Red-Office/Residential Node 1 (Bel-Red-OR-1). The purpose of the Bel-Red-OR-1 Land Use District is to provide an area for a mix of office, housing and retail uses within the core of a nodal area, with offices as the predominant use. The district is limited in extent in order to provide the level of intensity appropriate for areas in close proximity to the highest levels of transit service within the Bel-Red area.

5.    Bel-Red-Office/Residential Node 2 (Bel-Red-OR-2). The purpose of the Bel-Red-OR-2 Land Use District is to provide an area for a mix of office, housing and retail uses, with office as the predominant use. The district is located within a node but outside the node’s core, and building heights provide for a transition between the node’s core and areas outside the node.

6.    Bel-Red-Residential/Commercial Node 1 (Bel-Red-RC-1). The purpose of the Bel-Red-RC-1 Land Use District is to provide an area for a mix of housing, retail, office and service uses within the core of a nodal area, with an emphasis on housing. The district is limited in extent in order to provide the level of intensity appropriate for areas in close proximity to the highest levels of transit service within the Bel-Red area.

7.    Bel-Red-Residential/Commercial Node 2 (Bel-Red-RC-2). The purpose of the Bel-Red-RC-2 Land Use District is to provide an area for a mix of housing, retail, office and service uses. The district is located within a node but outside the node’s core, and building heights provide for a transition between the node’s core and areas outside the node.

8.    Bel-Red-Residential/Commercial (Bel-Red-RC-3). The purpose of the Bel-Red-RC-3 Land Use District is to provide an area for a mix of housing, retail, office and service uses, with an emphasis on housing. The district is located within a node but in close proximity to mature, stable neighborhoods, and is thus appropriate for transitional heights.

9.    Bel-Red-Commercial/Residential (Bel-Red-CR). The purpose of the Bel-Red-CR Land Use District is to provide an area for a mix of housing, retail, office and services. Multiple uses are encouraged on individual sites, in individual buildings, and in the district as a whole.

10.    Bel-Red-Residential (Bel-Red-R). The purpose of the Bel-Red-R Land Use District is to provide an area for residential uses. Limited retail and service uses are permitted secondary to residential use, in order to provide the amenity of shopping and services within easy walking distance of residential structures.

11.    Bel-Red-General Commercial (Bel-Red-GC). The purpose of the Bel-Red-GC Land Use District is to provide an area for a wide variety of business activities that provide goods and services to other businesses and the general public.

12.    Bel-Red-Office/Residential Transition (Bel-Red-ORT). The purpose of the Bel-Red-ORT Land Use District is to provide an area for low-intensity offices and uses and low density multifamily residential dwellings, developed in such a manner as to provide a buffer between residential and more intensively developed properties.

B.    Permitted Uses.

Specific categories of uses are listed in Chart 20.25D.070. LUC 20.25D.050 explains Chart 20.25D.070 and describes the applicable review procedures for Bel-Red. The description of the use chart contained in LUC 20.10.400 and the categories of uses contained in LUC 20.10.440 do not apply to the Bel-Red Land Use Districts.

C.    General Development Requirements.

1.    Regulations applying to specific structures or activities are found listed alphabetically in Chapter 20.20 LUC; consult the alphabetical Key Word Index in the beginning of that chapter.

2.    Bel-Red specific standards and guidelines are found in Chapter 20.25D LUC. All development in Bel-Red shall conform to these requirements. (Ord. 5876, 5-18-09, § 2)

20.10.380 Evergreen Highlands Design District (EH).

A.    Purpose.

The Evergreen Highlands Design District provides an area for the location of high technology research and development facilities; associated light assembly and warehousing; other manufacturing uses with similar character, intensity and impact; support service and retail uses; office uses; corporate headquarters and residential uses. It represents a unique land resource, and is to be developed as a well integrated, mixed-use district sensitive to natural constraints and surrounding established development patterns. All development should exhibit high quality design, and maintain high performance levels.

B.    The Evergreen Highlands Design District is divided into four performance areas as delineated by the Evergreen Highlands Zoning Map. These performance areas constitute separate land use districts and permit variation in use and development standards in order to implement the goals and policies of the Evergreen Highlands Subarea Plan, and to insure attention to specific environmental features of the various performance areas.

1.    Evergreen Highlands Performance Area A (EH-A). The purpose of this performance area is to provide a location for Medium Density Multifamily development, not exceeding 11 units per gross acre. This performance area is intended to provide housing opportunities, and to serve as a transition to the single-family housing adjacent to the Evergreen Highlands Design District.

2.    Evergreen Highlands Performance Area B (EH-B). The purpose of this performance area is to provide a location for lower intensity office uses. It serves as a transition between the residential development in Performance Area A and the higher intensity nonresidential uses in Performance Area C. This performance area constitutes the area of highest environmental sensitivity within the Design District, and development must reflect the natural limitations of the land.

3.    Evergreen Highlands Performance Area C (EH-C). The purpose of this performance area is to provide a location for research and development activity, office uses, and convenience retail and service uses. This performance area will serve as the focal point for the entire Design District. It must be developed in a campus-like research and development park theme, and should be compatible with nearby less intense areas.

4.    Evergreen Highlands Performance Area D (EH-D). The purpose of this performance area is to provide a location for office uses. It serves as a transition between the concentration of research and development and office uses to the north and the surrounding land use districts. (Ord. 3219, 1-17-83, § 2)

20.10.390 Medical Institution District (MI).

The Medical Institution (MI) District provides for the location of hospital uses and ancillary uses to the primary hospital use located on the same site or on sites in close proximity. The purpose of the district is to encourage comprehensive long-term master development planning for the properties designated MI and to allow flexible dimensional standards to facilitate development of major medical institutions and provision of the vital public services offered by these institutions. Specific development areas have been established in order to implement the objectives of the Medical Institution District.

A.    Hospital Center Development Area (DA1). The purpose of the Hospital Center Development Area is to provide an area for the primary hospital and the most intensive ambulatory health care center uses to be located within close proximity. The tallest heights and largest floor plates in the MI district are appropriate in this area. The Hospital Center Development Area is located on the topographically lowest portion of the district adjacent to the freeway where pedestrian orientation is low and heights of the tallest campus structures and largest floor plates are most appropriate. The tallest heights are necessary for the primary hospital towers to accommodate patient bed demand in the region within floor plates that are sized appropriately for patient care delivery. Large floor plates are necessary for hospital diagnostic and treatment uses and ambulatory health care center uses to accommodate adjacencies of multiple operating rooms, interventional radiology rooms and urgent care. The Hospital Center Development Area provides the dimensional flexibility necessary to allow the primary hospital and ambulatory health care center uses to be located in close proximity and benefit from the collocation of complementary uses. Medical office uses may also be appropriate for this area, but do not have the same proximity needs as the ambulatory health care center uses. Gateways on 116th Avenue NE at NE 8th Street and NE 10th Street identify the entry into the district and provide wayfinding cues for identification of individual institutions located within the district.

B.    Medical Office Development Area (DA2). The purpose of the Medical Office Development Area is to provide an area for medical office and hospital-related uses that are less dependent on immediate access to the primary hospital emergency rooms and patient beds. Taller buildings are appropriate in this area. Building mass variations (i.e., stepbacks, floor plate limitations) create transitions to less intense land use districts. Appropriate sidewalk widths, pedestrian-sensitive design and amenities and gateways ensure pedestrian orientation to perimeter sidewalks located on 116th Avenue NE and NE 12th Street. A gateway on 116th Avenue NE at NE 12th Street identifies the entry into the district.

C.    Hospital Perimeter Development Area (DA3). The purpose of the Hospital Perimeter Development Area (DA3) is to provide an area for less intense hospital and ambulatory health care center uses to be located within close proximity to the primary hospital located in the Hospital Center Development Area (DA1). The Hospital Perimeter Development Area is located on a topographically sloping portion of the district adjacent to the Burlington Northern Railroad right-of-way where parking can be accommodated under the building and is appropriately separated from pedestrian ways. More modest heights are contemplated for the less intense hospital uses in the Hospital Perimeter Development Area, but floor plates remain sized appropriately for patient care delivery. Large floor plates are necessary for hospital diagnostic and treatment uses and ambulatory health care uses to accommodate adjacencies of multiple operating rooms, interventional radiology rooms and urgent care. The Hospital Perimeter Development Area provides the dimensional flexibility necessary to allow the less intense hospital uses and ambulatory health care center uses to be located in close proximity and benefit from the collocation of complementary uses. Medical office uses may also be appropriate for this area, but do not have the same proximity needs as the ambulatory health care center uses. (Ord. 5831, 8-4-08, § 1; Ord. 5587, 3-7-05, § 1)

20.10.395 Factoria Land Use Districts (F).

A.    Factoria Land Use District 1 (F1). Factoria, F1 District is a mixed-use residential and regional retail center located adjacent to freeway corridors. It is to be developed as an aesthetically attractive urban village center to serve the Factoria community as well as shoppers attracted to the retail stores. Specific development areas and design guidelines apply within the district. Total size of the district is approximately 40 acres.
