West Seattle development: 4220 SW 100th, 4754 Fauntleroy Way go back to Design Review Board on April 20th

While the official notices are not yet out, the city has penciled in a date for the Southwest Design Review Board‘s next look at two local projects of note. Both are now on the SWDRB calendar for Thursday, April 20th:

4754 FAUNTLEROY WAY SW: This Triangle project on the site of a former pawn shop (and the parking lot to its north) is proposed for 108 apartments, 10 live-work units, and 107 offstreet-parking spaces. The review set for 6:30 pm on April 20th is the second and potentially final one for this project; here’s our report on the first one last August.

4220 SW 100TH: This Arbor Heights project proposing 9 three-story live-work units and 8 offstreet-parking spaces on the site of a former church is set for the 8 pm spot on April 20th. After the board took its first look at the project in January (WSB coverage here), it ordered a second round of Early Design Guidance – the stage in which size/shape comprise much of the discussion – so that’s what’ll be happening.

The “design packets” for these reviews – both happening at the Senior Center of West Seattle, the SWDRB’s regular venue in recent years – aren’t out yet; we’ll publish followups when they are.

    So many condo/apartment buildings with a high number of units going in all over WS. Although I am a supporter of high density, I wonder at which point the balance in WS is considered to be ‘upset’….

      Ah, two years ago?  Density has already outpaced infrastructure.  Hard to believe that we allowed this imbalance to happen.

        Do we have a choice? So far I would say no.

    What a way to ruin a nice quiet residential neoghborhood in Arbor Heights by allowing this kind of development @ 100th and 42nd ave sw. Every new resident will have to commute the stores. It’s tragic what our city leaders are allowing to be built and where.

    The development on 100th is completely inappropriate for that location.  If you look at that lot, it’s pretty small.  The claim that parking will be provided in back is ridiculous, and the structure will loom over everything else in the area.   Density requires intelligent planning, which this city seems incapable of.
