Followup: May 24th set for Junction project’s 1st Design Review meeting

In our Monday followup on 4724 California, the 7-story, 100-unit mixed-use project proposed for the ex-Petco site in The Junction, we reported that the development team hoped to have its first Southwest Design Review Board session on May 24th. Today, the city’s online schedule has been updated, and that is indeed the date set for the meeting – 6:30 pm Thursday, May 24th, at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (4408 Delridge Way SW).

    I find this project to be scary, since I really love the looks and feel of the ‘one story’, old fashioned downtown. But West Seattle seems to be changing quickly into a bedroom community to Seattle and that has it’s benefits also. As is typical, I like the old character, which is why I moved here many years ago.

    I read now that they plan to use the alley for vehicle and service access. Basically, that isn’t a viable option. I live behind the proposed site in Mural Apartments. Currently, in-go and out-go from the alley is regularly blocked on one or both ends of the alley by food service trucks and move-ins and outs from Mural, making access to difficult several times a days, 6 days a week. Many of the food service trucks are large semi’s, and they entirely block the width of the alley. Even though I am paying for parking at Mural, at times I must park on the street because the alley is blocked on both ends. Adding more alley users will make the alley close to non-functional. I cannot attend the design review meeting. Perhaps someone who is attending can bring this issue up. Thanks.

Sorry, comment time is over.
