West Seattle development: 5431 California demolition; 6010 California plan

Two development notes this morning, both on California SW:


DEMOLITION: Today’s teardown is at 5431 California SW, where a storage building is being demolished to make way for a project first mentioned here almost a year ago. It’s a mostly residential configuration that’s become fairly common: Three live-work units, with a two-unit townhouse building behind them, and two single-family houses on the alley. (Thanks to the nearby residents who tipped us to today’s demolition.)

NEW PROPOSAL: That configuration is so popular that a brand-new proposal is now on file for something similar a few blocks south (on a site with the same zoning, NC2-30, “neighborhood commercial” and three stories): An early-stage “site plan” just filed for the site of a small old house at 6010 California SW would replace it with three live-work units facing California, and two rows of two-unit townhouse buildings behind them. The plan shows six offstreet-parking spaces along the alley.

    What ever happened to the proposed rezone and demo of the Cafe Ladro space to make room for housing?

      Nothing new in the file since a year ago. No filing has to date ever been made for the possible rezone, which was just alluded to during a “pre-submittal conference.”

Sorry, comment time is over.
