4535 44TH SW: Back in November, this project, Lofts at The Junction, was the subject of a community-petitioned meeting, requested by neighbors concerned mostly about its 36 apartments/two live-work units having been proposed without any offstreet parking, as allowed by city zoning because of the proximity of frequent transit. The Department of Planning and Development has now ruled that it does not require a full environmental review, and has made a Determination of Non-Significance; here’s the announcement; here’s the decision (which also summarizes comments received about the project, including Design Review and the aforementioned requested-by-petition meeting). This starts the clock on a 2-week period for appeals (info here). The project had its final Southwest Design Review Board meeting last December.
4433 42nd SW: A similar decision has been announced for this four-story, 78-apartment/two-live-work-unit project, Junction Flats, planned with 53 offstreet-parking spaces. See the notice here; the decision details are here. June 2nd is the appeal deadline for this (info here) as well. This project finished Design Review in January.
