(From the design packet for 3062 Avalon Way)
The neighbors who came to a Southwest Design Review Board meeting in September to show concern about the 108-unit building planned for 3078 Avalon Way SW are planning a return trip tomorrow (Thursday) night to comment on its similar-sized prospective next-door neighbor. The project to be reviewed this time is at 3062 Avalon Way – first mentioned here 3 weeks ago – 107 apartments and 80 parking spaces on a site that now holds two older, small apartment buildings and a house:
The images are from the design “packet,” viewable online in advance of the meeting (6:30 pm Thursday, Senior Center of West Seattle at California/Oregon); the architect is Caron, same as the project reviewed in September. The concerned neighbors are along 32nd SW to the north, and according to e-mail discussions shared with WSB, their research has yielded a new point since their September show of force: When the West Seattle Junction urban-village plan was drawn up more than a decade ago, theirs was described as one of three pockets of single-family homes whose neighborhood character was to be protected. So that’s their rallying cry now.
You don’t have to live near a project to have a say at a Design Review meeting, so if you are interested in input – particularly on the size and shape, also known as “massing” – you should be there too; a public-comment period is part of every design-review meeting.
