For the first time in seven months, a major new development proposal for West Seattle has appeared in city files. This one is for the southeast corner of Fauntleroy Way SW and SW Edmunds, across from the south end of under-construction megaproject The Whittaker, and immediately south of the planned CVS drugstore site. This project’s official address is 4754 Fauntleroy Way SW and its site plan was just filed this week. It’s proposed as a seven-story, mixed-use building with 125 apartments over ground-floor commercial space and 90 offstreet parking spaces, on two parcels totaling 18,000 square feet, the southernmost of which currently holds the Capitol Loans pawn shop; the site is zoned NC3-85. This will have to go through Design Review – no date yet, as this is a very early-stage proposal that just appeared in the system. The site-plan document shows Caron as the architecture firm on the project. This would mean redevelopment for three of the four corners at that intersection (counting the 4-story, 50+-unit proposal at 4801 Fauntleroy, the southwest corner).
