DEVELOPMENT: 35th SW proposal would save, move house, while adding townhouses

(King County Assessor’s photo of 9238 35th SW)

While townhouse-building along arterials is not unusual, the plan for 9238 35th SW [map] is: Instead of demolishing the 84-year-old single-family house on this multi-family-zoned (Lowrise 2) site, the early-stage proposal that’s just appeared in city files would move the house forward on its current lot, and build four townhouses behind it. The detached garage on the alley at the back of the site would be removed, replaced by surface parking spaces. A house two doors north of this one had two townhouses built behind it in the ’00s but as far as we can tell, the house remained in its original spot. We have a request out to the project team for comment.

    It’s nice to see the house is not being wasted and sent to the dump.

    It would be nice to see the design of the new building, to be in the rear, reference the style of the  current  one that will be moved toward the sidewalk.

    I hoping this could be a trend instead of tearing down all our older homes!

Sorry, comment time is over.
