From today’s city Land Use Information Bulletin: The owners of Capitol Hill restaurant/bar Chungee’s have canceled their application to rezone their south Morgan Junction home so they can add another Chungee’s there. The city Hearing Examiner was supposed to have a hearing tomorrow on the proposed 6921 California SW rezone, but that’s off, and the notice in the LUIB says:
On June 16, 2016, the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections (Seattle DCI) published a SEPA decision and recommendation to approve a rezone of property.
The applicant has requested cancellation of their application and Seattle DCI hereby withdraws the decision and recommendation and will cancel the application.
We first reported last August on the rezone/restaurant proposal. While the lot is already zoned Lowrise 2, meaning it can hold more housing than it does now, the owners had sought to add the “Residential Commercial” zoning designation to enable adding a restaurant/bar. This is the second notable West Seattle project cancellation we’ve reported in less than a week; last Tuesday, we discovered the CVS proposed for the Triangle was off.
