DEVELOPMENT: 4 project notes from around West Seattle

Four project notes:

EARLY DESIGN OUTREACH FOR PROJECT @ EX-CHARMANN APARTMENTS: As we first reported last year, townhouses are proposed for the site of the former Charmann Apartmentsdemolished last October – at 5917 California SW. The 9-townhouse project is now in the city’s Early Design Outreach process, and a drop-in discussion is set for 2 pm Saturday, March 9th, at High Point Library (3411 SW Raymond). You can also comment by going here.

COMMENT TIME FOR 9037 35TH SW: We’ve also reported previously on a microapartments-and-retail mixed-use project to replace a house and small commercial building at 9037 35th SW – four stories, 26 small-efficiency dwelling units, 6 offstreet-parking spaces, plus retail. The permit application is now open for comments through March 4th; the notice is linked in the city’s newest Land Use Information Bulletin.

COMMENT TIME FOR 4 ALKI HOUSES: A land-use-permit application is in for a plan at 2530 55th SW, four 4-story houses with 4 offstreet-parking spaces on the sloped site above, which you might recall as the site of a slide back in 2013. Comments on the application are being accepted through February 27th.

ROWHOUSES INSTEAD OF APARTMENTS IN NORTH ADMIRAL: Three years after a 16-unit apartment building won Design Review approval for 1606 California SW, a different project is proposed. City files show 8 rowhouse units are now proposed to replace a fourplex and house at the site.

    Interesting building sight to say the least, going to be very expensive and very messy. Grew up very close and spent a lot of time playing on hill side as kid.  Hill has had many small slides and a few large ones over last 50+years. Lots of water and clay. There have been a few owners of property that started the process of building in past, but never succeeded.  Maybe this time they’ll get it done. Very narrow street with no parking should make it interesting for residents that live in area, as builders have zero area to park. I see city issuing no-park sign permits to builders to take area over. Hope property owners above sight keep their yards ;) 

Sorry, comment time is over.
