See revised design ‘packet’ for 3078 Avalon Way, before Design Review Board return

January 5, 2014 at 1:44 pm | In Development, West Seattle news | 2 Comments

The revised design proposal is now public for the first of seven projects going before the Southwest Design Review Board in the next month and a half — 3078 SW Avalon Way, 102 apartments and 60 parking spaces (in a zone that does not require any), scheduled for review on January 16th. The neighbors north/northeast of the project, in the single-family neighborhood mostly along 32nd SW, have been intensely involved in the process of vetting this building, with big turnouts at both preceding meetings, in September 2012 (WSB coverage here) and in November 2013 (WSB coverage here), and forming an advocacy group. The new “packet” – which you can see in its entirety here – says 3078 Avalon is now proposed to be three feet shorter than previously proposed, and: “The courtyard has been redesigned and increased privacy and interest have been added at the street level, as well as facing the single-family neighbors.” The 3078 Avalon review is first up in another doubleheader, 6:30 pm January 16th, at the Senior Center of West Seattle (California/Oregon).

  1. HOMOGENEITY takes the personality of communities.

  2. There is nothing substantially different in Height, Bulk and Scale. Plain and simple it is increased density being attempted regardless of the negative effects it would bring upon an adjacent single family neighborhood and the destruction of West Seattle character.

    This is complete disregard of the Seattle Municipal Code and the Design Review Guidelines and Process.

    West Seattle-ites! Your neighborhood will be next. If we don’t speak up and stand for reasonable constraints on development, West Seattle will become Ballard…

    Where one recites lo, though I walk through the dumb development shadows of death of communities… hey? where’d the sun go?
