Six West Seattle development notes/updates today:
3239 CALIFORNIA SW (map): A demolition application is pending for this commercial structure because of a development plan that’s been making its way through the system since spring. The site is part of the block that was upzoned in 2010 to NC2-40 and is across the street from the proposed 3210 California SW. Documents on file with the city include a proposed subdivision of the site into three lots; a site plan filed in spring proposed 2 live-work units fronting California with four single-family homes behind them, but the newest site plan just shows 4 single-family homes, two fronting California, two behind, height listed as 40′. The proposals are filed under three addresses – in addition to 3239 California SW, there’s also 3237B California SW and 3239B California SW.
4147 CALIFORNIA SW (map): Applications have just been filed this week proposing to demolish two single-family homes at this site, building a mixed-use building – described as one residential unit over 3,900 square feet of commercial space, fronting California – and a new single-family home behind it. It has not been formally announced yet, so watch for that, at which time a comment deadline likely will be set.
6536 24TH SW (map): An application was filed last week to split two parcels into eight at this site between 24th and 23rd north of Willow. Other documents in the city files indicate plans to build eight homes, with at least 16 parking spaces, next year, if approved. Documents also note there is a “small wetland” on the site, so there is additional environmental documentation on file.
7313 BAINBRIDGE PLACE (map): While construction is already well under way at this three-house project north of Lincoln Park – we reported on the site clearing 2 1/2 months ago – the plan to split it into three lots has just been approved. The notice in today’s Land Use Information Bulletin includes links for reading the full decision and finding out how to appeal it.
DESIGN REVIEW REMINDERS: Today’s LUIB also includes the formal notice of the next Southwest Design Review Board meeting for 3078 SW Avalon Way (8 pm January 16 at the Senior Center of West Seattle, as reported here three weeks ago; we’ve also noted that five other Design Review meetings are coming up in January/February).
MARKETING MICROHOUSING: You might have noticed the banner up in front of the first microhousing project to be completed in West Seattle, 4546-4548 Delridge Way SW (map).
That’s across from Southwest Youth and Family Services and Delridge Playfield, first mentioned here in fall 2012 when “boarding house” applications turned up in city files. It’s now being marketed – we found this recent listing with interior photos and a $750 pricetag. The two-building complex is officially Footprint Delridge, part of a new microhousing brand (same one that’s planning to develop 5949 California SW in Morgan Junction) – here’s the Footprint marketing website; the Delridge-specific page is here.
