West Seattle biz-and-building notes, 35th Avenue SW edition

Three biz=and-building notes from along 35th:

NEXT DESIGN REVIEW FOR NEW EYE CLINIC LOCATION: The three-story building planned as the future home of Clearview Eye Clinic, currently at Westwood Village, continues moving through Design Review. The Southwest Design Review Board schedule now has a tentative date for what could be the final meeting (after two next year), 6:30 pm April 16th. (Part of the site formerly housed Red Star Pizza.)

PEOPLE’S CHOICE MARKETPLACE TO 35TH/ROXBURY: According to documents on file with the Department of Planning and Development, tenant improvements are in the works for the space at 9451 35th SW that’s been vacant since Jackson-Hewitt moved to Morgan Junction last year. The site plan for the space is in the name of People’s Choice Marketplace, a medical-marijuana access point currently located on the south end of Delridge Way SW. We have an inquiry out to ask if this is an expansion or a move; no reply yet. The corner has a medical-marijuana outlet, Northwest Patient Resource Center across the street, and the CannaHealth clinic, which specializes in patient authorizations, is to the north.

STUDIO NORTH OF 35TH/MORGAN: Driving by the (updated) storefront at 6531 35th SW next to Q & T Nails’, just south of SW Morgan, we noticed a big new banner, Barre Bohemian. It’s a fitness studio that’s chronicling its transformation online.

    So, can we rename 35th and Roxbury to Weed Junction? I’m also surprised no West Seattle based business hasn’t taken up that name yet.

    So if I’m reading this right, there will be 3 marijuana outlets at 35th and Roxbury, and a charter school has applied to occupy the space on the SW corner of that intersection. Are there regulations about the proximity of these outlets to schools?

    • WSB February 25, 2015 (7:22 pm)

      CannaHealth does not sell or otherwise provide marijuana – but evaluates people for, and issues, authorizations. We have been asking around regarding the issue of proximity and the issue here is one that apparently hasn’t come up before, what happens if the marijuana enterprise (in this case, NWPRC) is there *before* the school proposal?

    I don’t have the time, but would support a donut shop in the weed junction. Who’s gonna step up.:)

    There are a lot of businesses that would be needed and welcome at that corner, as Arbor Heights has NO amenities. Neither another pot shop nor another school is on that list.

    Great another weed place in the area…
    Lets see how many loser businesses we can cram at this junction.

    Any news on red star possibly reopening somewhere else? I need pizza and wings a lot more often than glasses!

    It sounds like 35th and Roxbury is becoming the new “High Point” in West Seattle.

  • East Coast Cynic February 26, 2015 (11:15 am)

    Isn’t that nail salon next to the barre bohemian still open for business? I passed by it recently and it still appeared to be in business.

    • WSB February 26, 2015 (11:29 am)

      That’s the page that the county assessor’s site, usually a paragon of accuracy, had up for the address. We’ll check, thanks.

    • WSB February 26, 2015 (1:55 pm)

      ECC – right address, wrong photo. The nail salon building and the future Barre Bohemian building are apparently co-owned but the assessor’s site put the salon’s photo at 6531, though it’s actually 6535. So I’ll update, thanks again.

    Arbor Heights residents should also be aware that not only is a 3rd pot shop in the works for the 35th?Rox corner, but the entire corner – including the proposed charter school – is an approved encampment site. Could any more possibly be done to destroy a neighborhood?

    • WSB February 26, 2015 (2:04 pm)

      No, it’s not an “approved encampment site.” The city hasn’t even started going through the list of what sites it would approve. The policies haven’t even been finalized yet.

Sorry, comment time is over.
