West Seattle development: Hearing set for 18-house Madrona Glen; approvals for 14-house 3601 Fauntleroy

Today’s city-circulated Land Use Information Bulletin includes two development proposals we’ve covered before, totaling 32 houses to be built:

MADRONA GLEN – 2768 SW HOLDEN: That’s the newest address of record for the 18-house Madrona Glen proposal for a 1 1/2-acre site between Holden and Webster, west of the Navos campus.


Today’s notice announces a public hearing before the city Hearing Examiner at 9 am June 27th, in the examiner’s chambers at the Seattle Municipal Tower downtown, on whether to approve the actual subdivision of the land that’s involved – splitting three parcels into 18. The city Department of Construction and Inspection (formerly Planning and Development) is recommending approval, but this hearing is a required step before finalizing it. The project already has long since received other key approvals, including this one we reported in September 2014, with the address of record at that time 2646 SW Holden. The project first resurfaced in late 2013, after going dormant for more than a year. Meantime, as also previously noted here, the site’s been up for sale for a while – but this version of the listing says a sale is pending.

P.S. If you can’t make it to the hearing downtown, the notice explains other ways to comment.

3601 FAUNTLEROY AVENUE SW: This 14-house project in East Admiral has received two key land-use approvals, according to the notice in today’s LUIB – a determination of environmental non-significance, along with approval of “administrative conditional use to allow clustered housing in a steep-slope critical area.”

The announcement of these approvals opens an appeal period that runs until June 6th unless an extension is requested; here’s how to file an appeal. We last reported on this project in late summer of 2015, noting that it had been in the works for 8 years by then.

    The 3601 Fauntleroy property just changed hands a few weeks ago for $2,033,614.  Inhabit no longer owns it.  Appears to be JC Maybeck LLC according to KCR, which is Craig Haveson in West Seattle, whom I believe owns STS Construction.

    That map makes no sense; streets are mislabeled. (For example, avenue numbers should go higher going west). If they can’t even get this basic thing right, I fear for the integrity of the project.

      I fear the integrity of your map reading.

      What streets are mislabeled?

    One more recently sold home 4532 51st Pl SW. Permits pulled for demolish of existing home and lot subdivision into 3 lots in ECA area. Should be interesting to see how narrow single lane street holds up to heavy truck traffic coming soon…..

Sorry, comment time is over.
