WEST SEATTLE DEVELOPMENT: Alki bungalow demolished; 11 apartments to replace it and its neighbor

Thanks to Vy Duong for the photo of a bungalow demolition today at 1118 Alki SW. The 97-year-old house and its 75-year-old neighbor at 1122 Alki SW are to be replaced by a six-story, 11-apartment building. (We first mentioned the project in December 2015.) County records say the two sites were sold in late April for $1.5 million each.

    Too bad with growth the city is getting ripped out by the roots. The waterfront trolley, Ivars, I actually enjoyed driving on the viaduct and smelling the salmon in the summer…..I hope the Space Needle isn’t blocking anyone’s view, I like it too.

      I miss the trolley too. But Ivar’s is still there, even the area where people throw fries at the gulls. As for the Needle, there is supposedly city law that protects some view of it from public spaces (still looking for the ordinance # on that); it’s definitely less visible than when I worked in TV downtown in the ’90s and drove up Denny toward it most nights after exiting the Viaduct.

      What does any of the items you mentioned, or the houses in the article, have to do with blocked views?

    I like the Viaduct too, but must say San Francisco’s waterfront  is much prettier without the Embarcadero.  I have the same hope for the Seattle waterfront.

    This was my family home, as a child it was my grandma and grandpas house and most recently my dad step mom and brothers lived their. It’s sad to see it torn down and apartments being built. 😭

Sorry, comment time is over.
