After 20 years, the U-Frame-It shop at 3239 California SW is looking for a new location in West Seattle. Back in December, we reported a residential-development proposal for the site that has been home to the framing shop all these years; now, U-Frame-It proprietor Tom Sweeney confirms to WSB that they were just given notice last week that they’ll have to clear out: “February 18, we were given a Notice to Terminate Tenancy, effective March 31, 2014.” The site has both a demolition permit and a lot/parcel-split application under review. It was rezoned to NC2-40 along with the rest of the block during the 2007-2010 upzone that also paved the way for the 3210 California SW mixed-use project across the street, but this particular part of the block is proposed for single-family homes/live-work units. The site also includes Amante Pizza, but we haven’t reached them yet to find out their plans.
