1 week till 2nd Design Review for Vesseliye, now 1 building

(Rendering of what Vesseliye might look like along 20th SW – massing only, not final design)
One week from tonight, the Southwest Design Review Board will meet for a second ‘Early Design Guidance’ review of a four-story, 20-unit apartment building planned at 9051 20th SW (map). The meeting “packet” is available online now, and the added information explains why the project, called Vesseliye (translated at the 1st meeting in February as “Joy”), is going back for more “early” guidance even though the board agreed it could move to the next phase. The developers say that several discoveries since the 1st meeting have led them to completely revise the plan into one building instead of two. The site currently holds the two vacant, vandalized houses shown in our photo’s foreground (we’ve blurred the graffiti), which are just south of two commercial properties:

The design-review meeting is at 6:30 pm next Thursday, June 14th, at the Senior Center of West Seattle (California/Oregon, entrance on the north side).

SIDE NOTE – THIS MONTH’S OTHER DESIGN-REVIEW MEETING: Today the city sent out the official notice of the June 28th meeting first reported here on Tuesday, the first review for a 30-unit building at 3829 California SW.

    What a welcome change this will bring to that corner. If only we could get the old gas station changed into something cool…

    I just wish they were building them this small over here by the junction.

    What is the low, sloping portion on the south side of the house?
