Three Thursday afternoon notes


5 months after we reported townhouses are planned for the site of that 95-year-old house at 5232 California (across from West Seattle Nursery), the demolition permit has just been granted.


A few blocks north, 5020 California — the “Spring Hill” mixed-use proposal — gets its next Design Review Board hearing, featuring the new design options shown above (full details reported here), 8 pm tonight @ Denny Middle School Library (after the 6:30 pm review of 9030 35th).


1 month after that new paint job went onto Slices on Alki – it’s applied for a new liquor license; the applicant is “Cocktails Inc.” and the category is “snack bar.”

    Ah- this area of Alki continues to be so controversial! I wish Tom and Patrick would just sell the block with Slices so somebody else can build condos or apartments there. I hate seeing a new liquor license biz there each year. While I’m at it, I wish Tom would also sell the Homestead! The place has gotten so much worse. And stop putting up those 30 foot inflated huge Corona bottles on their block of the beach each summer (commercializing our beach)… and stop trying to build a hotel on the beach! As you can see, i’ve been annoyed with their shenanigans for years now.

Sorry, comment time is over.
