Thanks to the texter who pointed out that the city has put up a project-application sign for a proposed 12-unit rowhouse development in Alki, replacing three 71-year-old duplexes on the northeast corner of 61st SW and SW Admiral Way. The project for 3050 61st Avenue SW has not yet officially appeared in the Land Use Information Bulletin but the sign’s appearance suggests that’s imminent (next LUIB is tomorrow), and that will open an official comment period. The “site plan” document in the city’s online files, by architects Novion, shows two 3-story buildings, one with eight units facing 61st and the other with four units facing Admiral. The “Alki Parking Overlay” requires 1 1/2 offstreet spaces per unit, and this plan shows 18 spaces off the alley, east of the bigger building, north of the smaller one.
