Five development notes today:
OFFICIAL NOTICE FOR 6917 CALIFORNIA MEETING: In case you missed the mention in our coverage of last week’s Morgan Junction development-primer meeting, the city notice is officially out today, confirming December 19th as the date for the citizen-requested Department of Planning and Development meeting to take comments on the 30-apartments, no-off-street-parking building planned at 6917 California SW. The project does not require Design Review, so no public meeting would be happening if not for a petition drive spearheaded by Concerned Morgan Junction Neighbors. The meeting is at 6:30 pm December 19th at the Senior Center of West Seattle. (This Thursday, December 12th, there’s another community-organized meeting, this time with the site’s developer, 6:30 pm at Neighborhood House’s High Point Center.) Our photo, by the way, shows the fence that went up around the site within the past few days.
Further north, another proposal is now in the city system – seven townhouses proposed for a 7,500-square-foot site at 4842 Fauntleroy Way SW (map), to replace a 62-year-old duplex. The site plan shows two townhouses fronting Fauntleroy, five behind, with seven parking spaces lining the alley on the east side of the site.
2801 SW NEVADA LOT SPLIT, TOWNHOUSES: A few more details on this lot-split plan mentioned last week while we were covering the prefab-townhouse installation nearby on SW Genesee: The comment period for 2801 SW Nevada’s lot split (map) ends next Sunday; you can send a comment by following the link atop the notice, which currently covers only the lot split, though a site plan on file with the city outlines four townhouses to replace the 66-year-old duplex that’s there now.
2 NEW SEAVIEW HOMES: Two 94-year-old houses in the 5900 block of 47th SW in Seaview (map) are planned to be demolished and replaced with new homes – the application for 5911 47th SW is here; the application for 5917 47th SW is here.
SIGHTS ON SITES: Two reader-contributed photos – first, Sharonn caught one of the tanks taken out of the ground at the former Shell station on the 4755 Fauntleroy Way development site at Fauntleroy/Alaska:
That’s not the official start of demolition at the site, just the cleanup of the corner.
Finally – the crane that’s been up for half a year over Spruce, aka the ex-Hole, was spotted hoisting bio-break necessities:
Thanks to Leslie for sharing that pic taken from Dream Dinners (WSB sponsor) on the outer east side of Jefferson Square.
