Quick update after Design Review doubleheader: 4724 California done; 4755 Fauntleroy advances to next stage

We’ll have separate full-length reports later on both parts of tonight’s Design Review Board doubleheader, but since it has just wrapped up after more than 3 1/2 hours, we have toplines: The board gave its final blessing to 4724 California, the building planned for the ex-Petco site in The Junction, and allowed 4755 Fauntleroy Way – the megaproject that we now know will include Whole Foods – to move on to the second phase of Design Review. 4724 California still has other parts of the permit process to go through, but now that this stage is complete, they’re expecting to start construction – with demolition first – around April 1st. A fair amount of public comment was provided on both projects, mostly positive for 4724 California, some negative for 4755 Fauntleroy Way – “South Lake Union next to West Seattle” was one vivid phrase. Again, full coverage coming up later.

    Is there a way to guide the design of this building aesthetically? It looks horribly cheap to me, not unlike ‘the projects’ in New York with some slight mods!

    I agree Chris. Hope they can create some distinguishing design elements on the corner of Fauntleroy and Alaska. Hope they can break out of the box!

    Have the full reports of these meetings been posted yet?

      No, they are long and I am still working on them.

Sorry, comment time is over.
