West Seattle development: See 9030 35th SW design before Thursday review


When we reported four weeks ago that the mixed-use project at 9030 35th SW would go back to the Southwest Design Review Board on November 3rd, the new “packet” wasn’t available. Now it is; the rendering above is from the packet, and you can see it in its entirety on the city website. The project is on the east side of 35th, two parcels north of SW Barton, proposed as a four-story building with 40 apartments, ~3,100 square feet of ground-level retail, and 32 offstreet parking spaces. The packet says the development team intends to “provide market-rate housing with vibrant, small-scale retail activity at the street level.” It’s the only project on the SWDRB agenda Thursday night, 6:30 pm, at the Sisson Building/Senior Center at 4217 SW Oregon in The Junction.

    Nowhere near enough parking. One per unit should be a minimum.

      It’s near frequent transit (C Line) so there’s a lower requirement for parking, per the design packet.

    Not sure hood ‘vibrant’ that retail is going to be unless most of those 32 parking spaces are off limits to tenants. Not a lot of foot traffic there I’d bet.

    I think there’s going to be significant foot traffic there. That entire area is slated to be an urban village. Is it me or does thatbuilding look exactly like the building that just went up on 35th and Andover across the street from Taco Time and the football field?

    Thanks for the correction TR. I didn’t check the draft map before commenting and did assume this project was within those boundaries.

    9447 35th is north of Roxbury. It would be nice if the entire corner/intersection were redeveloped into something useful. The charter school is definitely NOT in that category.

    Market rate housing?  Does that mean they are going to charge as much as they can get and not have any low income options?

Sorry, comment time is over.
