Development site south of The Junction back on the market

November 20, 2009 at 3:52 pm | In Development, West Seattle news | 6 Comments

New on the market for $2,895,000 – the parcels south of The Junction that former Fauntleroy Place (Whole Foods) developers BlueStar were at one time going to develop as a residential/commercial project called Spring Hill5020nightview.jpg (no relation to the renowned Junction restaurant). When we reported on foreclosure proceedings involving the site (5020-5030 California SW) back in June (second half of this story), that’s the same amount a bank was pursuing as an opening bid. Property records show Shoreline Bank owns the three parcels that comprise the site, and the listing mentions a land-use permit is pending; here are details on the originally proposed project, from its last Design Review meeting 14 months ago. More recently, part of this site was mentioned at the Fairmount Springs community crimefighting meeting we covered last month – there were complaints of transient/squatter/drug-house activity involving one of the vacant buildings long scheduled for demolition till the project stalled.

  1. any update on the Whole Foods site? I’m assuming it’s still tied up in legal battles?

  2. If they think they will get anything close to that number they are high. (Pun intended).

  3. I love how, on the Blue Star website, they have 3 projects currently in West Seattle, Fauntleroy Place, Spring Hill, and Gateway Center. And not a damned thing happening in any of them. And on their “professional” website, instead of saying “contact us”, it says “conact us”. I’m pretty anal about little things like that on these sites by these supposedly professional, successful businesses…makes me wonder who’s running the store, and would I really want them as my developers in the future. The website says nothing about these three places not being built. Sigh.

  4. Looking at their “Cielo Vista” project in Las Vegas, it appears Blue Star pulled out of there as well. Wonder if they left a “hole” there?

  5. Could Trader Jo’s move in? It’s is certainly large enough.
