Checking the city Department of Planning and Development (new names soon) online files for end-of-week updates of interest, we found two:
2ND DESIGN REVIEW BOARD MEETING FOR 1250 ALKI SW: It’ll be an all-almost-waterfront-project lineup when the Southwest Design Review Board has its second meeting of the new year on January 21st. We’ve already reported that 1307 Harbor SW – the mixed-use project for the old Alki Tavern site and neighboring parcels – is up for its next review at 6:30 that night. Now the second slot on the schedule, 8 pm, is slated for the board’s second look at Perch, the proposed ~100-unit apartment building at 1250 Alki SW. Its first review, in October, drew a large turnout (WSB coverage here; official city report here). The meeting will be at the SWDRB’s usual venue, the Sisson Building (WS Senior Center) at Oregon/California in The Junction.
7 UNITS FOR 4439 41ST SW: Another followup today on 4439 41st SW, where neighbors – including a church and school – voiced concern last year over a then-proposed 40-unit apartment building with five offstreet parking spaces replacing a 105-year-old single-family house. Two months ago, we reported on a new plan for the site – a four-unit rowhouse, plus a lot split, with no indication at the time of what the other lot would hold. Now the city files show a two-unit townhouse plus one single-family house added to the site, for a total of seven units proposed. The new site plan showing all seven units indicates four offstreet parking spaces are planned behind the rowhouses, and a garage for each of the three other units.
