One more reminder: Fifth Design Review tonight for 3210 California; first one for 1307 Harbor

It’s been a busy morning so no “West Seattle Thursday” preview today (see the full calendar here), but here’s a reminder about tonight’s Southwest Design Review Board meeting at the Senior Center of West Seattle (California/Oregon), involving two sizable projects:

6:30 PM – 3210 CALIFORNIA SW (map)
This is the fifth meeting for the block-long 134-unit, 152-parking-space, ~450-foot-long mixed-use project in the south Admiral area. Two weeks ago, we published an update with news of changes made in the project since the last meeting, including a one-story (and 10-apartment) reduction on the north end of the building plan. The full design packet is here; our report on the last Design Review meeting is here.

8 PM – 1307 HARBOR SW (map)
This is the first Design Review meeting for this mixed-use project on 7 parcels including the former site of the Alki Tavern. Here’s the design packet, as linked in our report one week ago when it, and new project details, became available online, including these listed “development objectives”:

– 100,000 square foot mixed-use structure containing approximately:
– 21 residential apartments, totaling about 25,400 square feet
– 11,800 square feet of commercial office space
– 7,500 square feet of light manufacturing
– 6,700 square feet of ground floor retail
– 4,200 square feet of restaurant
– 41 parking spaces below grade, totaling approximately 14,400 square feet

Both meetings will include time for public comment, as always.

P.S. A new member joins the board tonight – as mentioned in our coverage of the most-recent meeting last month, term limits (two 2-year terms maximum) forced Myer Harrell to leave the board; Matt Zinski should be on hand for his first meeting tonight.

    This is located in an area with repeated landslides and earth slippage over the years. Exercise caution.

    You mean Seattle? ;-)

    Seriously, this entire city is just dirt pushed up by the last ice age…our “hills” aren’t made of solid granite…everything here is a landslide risk.

    Being a carpenter i don’t care. with the past rescion contruction workers were at 40percent unemploled. This is a chance to make our money back. If builders want to build then cut me a check to feed my family

    I used to live on Westlake Ave down on Lake Union. Some of the larger developments down there actually help stabilize the hill with their massive foundations.

    Why can’t we ungrant the developer the exemption? What would it take? Clearly they can’t handle the responsibility of it.

Sorry, comment time is over.
