House with ADU on Flag Lot

A new Single Family home, with attached Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), is proposed for NE 78th Ave. The building permit application seeks to build on a recently created flag lot. The new property was created by dividing 338 NE 78th Ave, prior to its most recent sale.

There is no garage planed for the new two story building. Possibly because of the mature trees that are blocking a clear path to where the structure will be constructed. The lot and house have not yet received a street number. The application only lists NE 78th Ave as the address.

Dez Development is the Applicant on the permit application. Slavik Dezhnyuk, Managing Member of Dez Development, wrote in to clarify his company’s involvement. “DEZ Development is only assisting the owner with the permitting and is not involved in the development or construction of the project.”

More should be known when the building permit application is approved and construction begins. Flag lot construction is a good method to add housing density without crowding the existing houses. It should be a welcomed addition of single family housing and an apartment.


UPDATEDThis article was updated with the email response from Dez Development, correcting an earlier version, stating they were involved in the future construction on the property.
