DEVELOPMENT: Mixed-use proposal for 9218 18th SW

(King County Assessor’s Office photo)

A new redevelopment proposal in South Delridge for three HALA-upzoned lots centered on 9218 18th SW [map]: It’s described in city files as a 5-story “approximately 76-unit mixed-use apartment building with ground-floor commercial and 1 level of below-grade parking for approximately 36 vehicles.” Though the address is on 18th, part of the site faces Delridge. The early-stage site plan (PDF) is by Caron Architecture.

    Hmm. 76 Units, 36 parking spots where there was a single residence? And a 90 unit complex coming in down the street on less than 1/8 of an acre with no parking at all. It seems City planners have figured out where to cram all the “affordable housing”; just as the County figured out where to put their Corona virus quarantine units — where folks can’t afford to fight.

      For context, this is the same zoning/density as in a multitude of other neighborhoods, just to be clear. And it’s not a government-funded project, so “city planners” are not responsible for it, aside from the overall upzoning that happened as part of HALA (this is one of many areas that was already znned for denser housing than it held). Same zoning as the site where 126 apartments are planned at Harbor/Spokane (see our Design Review coverage from Thursday night), for example. – TR

    Just expect a LOT of new car’s parking in the neighborhood. In the “pretend” world all these tenants/business shoppers/visitors will come by bike/bus/walking. In the REAL world most, if not all will own and use car’s. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
