Looks like West Seattle’s most-likely place for a recreational-marijuana store will be North Delridge – the 3800 block, to be specific. Here’s why:
The state has just gone public with its list of positions drawn in its lottery among prospective marijuana retailers – necessary because far more applications were received than licenses will be allotted. The entire city of Seattle will have 21 licensed stores, for example. At the top of the Seattle lottery list, #1 was drawn by a West Seattle applicant, Trichome & Calyx Corp., with the address 3809 Delridge Way SW, Suite B (map; currently the site of a medical-marijuana dispensary); the corporation’s owner is listed in state records as Magnolia entrepreneur Mehran Rafizadeh. The next-highest West Seattle location drawn, #37, was for the same applicant, same street address, Suite A. Next, #40, went to The Edge, applying for 3805 Delridge Way SW. Another 3809 Delridge Way applicant, Paradigm, drew #42. Following that, at #52, is an existing medical-marijuana provider, the Northwest Patient Resource Center on the east side of 35th/Roxbury. Seven of the other West Seattle locations with higher numbers in the lottery also applied using the 3809 Delridge Way SW address; there were also applicants from Harbor Avenue, West Marginal Way, and the west side of 35th/Roxbury.
You can download the full statewide list, which has a tab for each city including Seattle, from this page on the state Liquor Control Board website. Licenses are expected to be issued by early July, according to this state FAQ.
