West Seattle development: Testing at 4755 Fauntleroy Way

Anne at Ventana Construction (WSB sponsor) tipped us to a work crew at 4755 Fauntleroy Way, past Huling Chevrolet and future proposed mixed-use development site (first covered here a month ago). In case you wondered too: We checked with John Wunder of Associates West, rep for the property owners, and he said it’s just “environmental testing” – the site’s prospective future owners doing “due diligence.” No additional information yet about this proposed development, but we’re continuing to follow up. It’s one of the sites on the map we debuted last week, showing active under- and future-construction sites in West Seattle:

Nothing added to the map since its debut six days ago, but we’re monitoring these and other sites and will continue to update.

    Any idea how many living units are included?

      Not yet. They’re just describing so far as five floors over retail. We should know more within the next month or two. – TR

    Hi WSB: We live close by to the 3829 California SW project. I know it is “only” 30 units so it isn’t getting much attention, but this is NOT a big lot. 10 units per floor (!) in 3 floors seems crazy for this site.

    I was not able to attend the June 28th design review, but emailed the city’s project manager (he never replied).

    Can you tell me if there was anyone there, and if so, what was discussed? Any future meetings on this project?

    Thanks much!

      I wasn’t able to go, nor to get backup. The report should be on the DPD site but I see it’s not – please contact the planner on the project, michael.dorcy@seattle.gov,and tell him you need the Early Design Guidance meeting report but it’s not linked. (The link just goes to the packet, again, which it shouldn’t. Minutes should be up by now.) There is no date scheduled for the second meeting yet. I watch the advance schedule page multiple times daily and nothing there …

      … and if he doesn’t reply to you, contact the DPD’s customer service manager Bryan Stevens bryan.stevens@seattle.gov – the department is OBLIGATED to deal with the public, so you should not be getting stonewalled; maybe Michael D was just away, or something.

    Yeah, no word from Michael (from my JUNE email) and now it says he is on leave until Oct. His boss has not responded. I just emailed Mr. Stevens. Thanks for the help.

Sorry, comment time is over.
