Followup: Aegis closes West Seattle Life Care Center site purchase

Moving on with some other news now that the big power outage is mostly over:

A major real-estate deal in West Seattle has closed. Eastside-headquartered Aegis Living has completed its purchase of the former Life Care Center site at 47th/Admiral, for $3,650,000. We first reported almost two months ago that Aegis was the prospective buyer; then Aegis CEO Dwayne Clark talked with WSB just before Thanksgiving, saying they’re planning to tear down the old building and build a new complex with 72 to 80 units, some assisted living, some memory care. No city permit applications yet; Clark told us last month that they expected to finish design work within three months or so of closing the deal. His company has 30 senior-living complexes in three states.

  1. Any idea on the zoning for the site? Would new buildings need to be one story, or could they build higher?

  2. With 72 to 80 units, it would anticipate several stories.

  3. They could probably get away with 4 stories, especially if they used more of the lot (less lawn). Keep in mind the current building isn’t one story, it’s two. Only one floor is visible from the Admiral side, but it’s on a hillside. It’s a bit bigger than it looks.
