Development proposal for 7100 Delridge; design review set

For the first time in a half-year, the Southwest Design Review Board will soon have a project to review. The meeting tentatively scheduled for August 12th – no time/place yet – will be “early design guidance” for a proposal at 7100 Delridge Way SW (map). It’s described on the city Department of Planning and Development website as a “split-zone site” with one 4-story mixed-use building “containing 58 units over 1,750 sq ft of retail space,” plus three single-family homes. The proposal also mentions underground parking for 77 vehicles. Owner/developer is John Su, best known for Bellevue high-rise projects like this one.

    I hope this goes through. Some retail space would be nice.

    Is it within an urban village or are they going to ignore the boundaries again and defeat the purpose of organized growth.

    Some non-gas station retail would be welcome in this part of Delridge! I hope a good coffee shop will be a tenant.

    More empty retail space. Yay! Or maybe Supercuts will come in? Oh yeahhh!

    -Good to see new development proposed for that location. The property in question as well as the properties in the immediate vicinity are currently Zoned C1-40.
    -Now if some savvy and well healed person would drop out of the sky and purchase the 4+ NC2-40 Zoned parcels that are For Sale at the NE corner of Delridge Way and Findlay and do something interesting with them while land and construction costs are low…..

    That’s weird. The Land Use Permit says 4 stories and 58 units. The building permit says 5 stories and 77 units. Hmmm. There was a similar proposal on that site something like 12 years ago that never went anywhere. I’d be surprised if they could make it work at that location.

    We can at least hope that something there will be better than nothing. And, I agree: more walkable retail or restaurant businesses are much needed!

    What was wrong with leaving a green space there anyway? The Delridge area is already too crowded, and now it’s just going to get worse.

    This place will suck when there are no green spaces left . . .

    I actually live in the area and the space in question is mostly used for public drinking and a garbage dump. I’d welcome a well cared for new development within walking distance.

Sorry, comment time is over.
