More West Seattle development news: Junction, Alki updates

Two more notes from the city permit files this morning: The land-use permit has just been issued for the project shown above, 4502 42nd SW (corner of SW Oregon; map), which is planned as a 7-story building with 89 residential units over 20,000+ square feet of ground-level retail and office space, with parking for 121 vehicles. Four houses on the site will be demolished when construction begins; next steps include building and demolition permits. Meantime, the city has just published approvals for “shoreline substantial development” and administrative Design Review for the 2-years-in-the-works 2-story proposal (two residential units over retail) at the old Pegasus Pizza site (2758 Alki); the official decision notice explains how to appeal.

    With all these buildings going up…it seems hard to believe that all of these rentals will fill up!

    I doubt that this building will get built any time soon. Looks to me like the developer is getting permit in hand in order to get the value of the property up in a down market.

    Wow, the West Seattle core might finally look like a city! Not so sure about that two-story development, but the SW Oregon project looks pretty cool.

    More traffic, nice reinto to pay to park in the future. Too bad as it is what we are looking to have, less development the better I say…

    Yeah…let’s keep increasing the population density while not improving nor increasing West Seattle’s ingress/egress.
    All this building, but I don’t see the bridge getting any wider.

    I don’t want to see the Junction get any taller and look like a city. I wish there was a height restriction. Let’s not lose the small town feel.

Sorry, comment time is over.
