Design Review meeting set for 5020 California


We first told you in October (detailed report here) about Spring Hill, the development planned for the area shown above, in the 5000 block of California, just south of The Junction (map). The developer is BlueStar Management, same firm behind Fauntleroy Place, future home to Whole Foods, 170 apartments, etc. Now, a date is set for the Southwest Design Review Board to give “early design guidance” on the project — January 10. According to the city project page, the scope of Spring Hill (no known relation to the future restaurant) has grown a little since our original post – it’s now described as six stories, 90 apartments, 4,000 sf of retail, 100 parking spaces.

    I’m really disappointed that Spring Hill will only have 90 apartment units. Wouldn’t it be much nicer if we could squeeze about 150 or 160 in there?

    I’m sure if the Blue Star management team would take a closer look at this, they could figure it out, especially with the help of DLU.

    Just think folks, we can make West Seattle into another Bellevue if we really put our minds to it.

    I am really looking forward to seeing this beacon of beauty grace our neighborhood and look forward to the day when we can all celebrate with a sense of satisfaction at the wonderment that will be 6 stories of pure bliss.

    Thanks to the Blue Star people and city zoners who were able to add this to our already growing collection of new affordable housing. Are we becoming famous or what?

    It is so nice when developing teams come to West Seattle with the intention of upgrading our dusty old community instead of just making money. Thank you so much for your generosity and welcome to the neighborhood.

Sorry, comment time is over.
