Followup (and traffic alert): Sidewalk work at 35th/Avalon

October 10, 2012 at 2:01 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle traffic alerts | 8 Comments

When we reported last month on “The Residence at 3295,” the long-in-progress apartment building at 35th and Avalon, the question came up in comments: What about the sidewalk? Today, we have the answer – the work is under way. Thanks to Tim for the tip; note that it might mean slower going around the corner there.


  1. Sure hope there will be a way to get to the bus stop.

  2. It’s shamefully ugly and built too close to the street.

  3. We have lots of ugly blogs underway. How about the monstrosity being built at the top of Admiral Way, near 36th?

  4. The design of this building is “meh” but it’s location is fabulous, niext to bus stop and a few blocks from TJs. I hope something good goes in the commercial space although parking will suck for it on the street.

  5. Kgdkg, my thought exactly. Drove past today and the sign says Retail/Restaurant available. No way is there enough parking to support a restaurant!

  6. Maybe they have underground parking? But then that would probably be for the tenants. Hmm, wonder where the customers of the businesses would park.

  7. Yes, there’s a garage. I don’t know how many spaces but the DPD page for the address refers to it a few times including “Ventilation of parking levels 1,2 and 3″ …

  8. That building was built too close to the street. The sign marking the street names are not even visible on Avalon until you drive under them. As a real estate broker I am all for occasional exceptions to density requirements and setbacks if there are proper builder concessions, but I don’t see anything that is going to benefit the public in exchange for being on top of the busy street. I wonder if they have set aside a number of units for more affordable rents. I toured Nova on Sunday, and they are nice, but small, and I think the starting rent was over $1300 for 620 sq ft (approx).
