More development news: The Kenney sells some land

June 11, 2010 at 10:39 am | In Development, The Kenney, West Seattle news | 2 Comments

As first reported here in April, the redevelopment plan for The Kenney is undergoing some revision – changing into “something smaller,” as T.J. Lehman of West Seattle-based Euclid Development told the Morgan Community Association at their last quarterly meeting. As part of the changes, The Kenney has just sold some land. CEO Kevin McFeely confirmed to WSB not only that they’re selling 7022 46th Avenue SW (the quarter-acre parcel across SW Myrtle from The Kenney’s NE corner; the site holds an old house and was listed for just under half a million dollars), but that the deal is closing today. He explains that “the property no longer fits into our plans” because of the “retooling” of the redevelopment project. McFeely says he expects to be able to reveal more specifics on the downsized project by the end of next month. (Our 2-year archive of stories on The Kenney’s project can be browsed here.)

  1. I drove by the house on SW Myrtle yesterday and noticed that the beautiful trees are being cut down. I find this so very sad. I’m wondering how this site is going to be developed. Who bought the property and what are the plans? Does anyone know?

  2. I didn’t see a permit filing when I did research for the story last week. However, there is one there now, and it looks to be just a week old – one action is dated 6/7/10. A new single-family home will be built.
