If you’re keeping track of the Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC) proposal for a 75-unit apartment building in the 5400 block of Delridge Way SW, to provide permanent housing for homeless people dealing with mental illness/substance abuse, here’s an update: When we first reported on the proposal in mid-June, nothing was in the city Department of Planning and Development online system yet. Now, it is. There are two project numbers to track: This one is for the land-use permit application; this one is for the construction permit. Both are filed for the address 5444 Delridge Way. The page for the land-use application notes “Tree preservation and additional commercial space to be considered”; the latter came up at the first informational meeting for the project, a standing-room-only June 27th gathering at Delridge Library from which some were turned away. We are checking with DESC about future meeting plans.
Sorry, comment time is over.
