Another long-dormant project is apparently about to get going again: the south-of-Junction 91-unit building called Spring Hill – no relation to the restaurant – by its previous developer, BlueStar (also the original developer of The Hole). BlueStar is long out of the picture and the site has been bank-owned for a while, and up for sale since 2009; our last update was in early 2010. Now, Paragon Real Estate Associates announced on its website that the site’s been sold to someone who wants to “break ground as soon as possible,” since the project passed Design Review 3 years ago and already has its land-use permit (though construction permits aren’t finalized, according to city online records). We’re still working to find out who bought it.
We discovered the 5020 California SW sale thanks to Jodee, who had e-mailed to point out another West Seattle item on the Paragon website, an Avalon Way sale described as a future 100-unit apartment complex. Actually, 117 units, according to an initial DPD entry for 3261 Avalon Way, one of the addresses that Paragon includes in its info about the sale. The buyer is Redmond-based CD Heritage LLC.
