JayMarc to host design preview for new First Hill homes

Open house will be held on March 16 at the Community Center.

JayMarc Homes will host a design preview from 3:30-5 p.m. on Wednesday at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center to give residents a glimpse of new houses planned for First Hill.

Representatives from the developer met with neighbors at the newly renovated Symphony House on West Mercer Way a few months ago to discuss its newest project, planned on 74th Avenue Southeast.

Some First Hill residents are concerned that the modern style of new homes is threatening their neighborhood character, which prompted a contentious discussion last year on a potential moratorium on residential development.

“We have carefully considered [community] input and have worked diligently to create some beautiful homes that will fit nicely into the neighborhood,” JayMarc’s Adrienne Buxbaum wrote in an email.

The public is invited to view the renderings and floor plans for the homes JayMarc is working on for this property on Wednesday, March 16.

Marc Rousso and a several other key members of the JayMarc Team will be in attendance to discuss the plans and the company’s “continued commitment to keep the spirit of Mercer Island strong.”
