QUAIL PARK: The 60+-bed memory-care center that’s long been in the works for 4515 41st SW in The Junction is about to begin construction, according to David Haack with parent company Living Care Lifestyles. If you have questions about the project, a community meet-and-greet is planned at Senior Center of West Seattle 2:30-4 pm on Wednesday, July 13th. Two weeks after that, they’re planning a groundbreaking ceremony on July 27th, time TBA. It’s been almost four years since we first found early word of the plan, which went through Design Review in 2014-2015.

Three projects covered here previously have formal notices in today’s city-circulated Land Use Information Bulletin:

DESIGN REVIEW DOUBLEHEADER FOR 9021 17TH SW & 2749 CALIFORNIA SW: We’ve already published word of both of these reviews set for a July 21st Southwest Design Review Board doubleheader – the four-story, 32-apartment building at 9021 17th SW at 6:30 pm (as reported here two weeks ago; formal notice here; and the four-story, 112-apartments-and-retail building at 2749 California SW (as reported here Monday, formal notice here) at 8 pm. If you can’t make it to the meetings, you can comment on the projects by following the instructions in the notices.

APPLICATION FOR 2116 ALKI SW: We mentioned this site back in January, when it was proposed for six condos and nine parking spaces. In today’s Land Use Information Bulletin, this notice announces its owners have applied to build a 3-story, 6-apartment, 11-offstreet-parking-space project. You have until July 29th to comment; here’s how.

    This is just from my own personal perspective being slowly pushed out of the area I have always lived because of cost. Why would I be interested in designs review of buildings in a community I am being priced out of? Honest question do you agree?

      NW:  I expect the publishers of this local news source report on all of the news that they think is relevant to tens of thousands of households on our fair peninsula.  They likely leave it up to you to decide for yourself which articles to read and which you can skip over.

    If you are leaving then you don’t need to attend. The review is for people who are staying or coming.

    Like many others in the Seattle area being pushed out of where they live by rising cost driven locally ,rent wise, by short term renters tech workers ……. . Have you been thru central district lately?

    How did this notice about a much -needed memory care development derail so quickly?

  • MsD June 30, 2016 (11:24 pm)

    I wonder if Quail Park will be like all the other memory care facilities in Seattle and be private pay only at $5k+ per month?  (By the looks of the building I’m guessing it will be much pricier than that.)

      They have one other memory-care center, according to the company website, and while it doesn’t seem to have prices, it does touch on some of what you ask about. http://www.qpmcr.com/memory-care-faqs/

      Their meet-and-greet event is for questions about what they’ll offer, not just the construction project, so far as I know.

    I do like the looks of it, though…more of a brick facade, which makes it more appealking to the eye. I noticed that the middle building of the construction project on the east side of Calif. Ave. , near Hanford, also has a brick facade, while the two on either side don’t I like the brick much better. It’s not as bland and boring as much of the development up and down the Ave. is.
