We told you a couple of years ago about plans by a developer to build student housing on Broadway at the site of a Chinese Restaurant at 1020 North Broadway.

Koz Development, which first built student housing in cooperation with Everett Community College back in 2015 planned this building on their own and actually ran into opposition from Everett Community College. While the Chinese Restaurant was torn down and the property empty, the folks at Koz Development have been revamping plans for the development.

Here’s more from a notice put out by the City of Everett Wednesday advising of a public comment period on the revised project.
