TODAY: Southwest Design Review Board looks at 4406 36th SW, new time

(Rendering from Ankrom Moisan)

The Southwest Design Review Board‘s first online meeting happens at 4 pm today, earlier than previously announced, but the agenda is the same – the 7-story, 277-unit mixed-use project proposed for 4406 36th SW, one of two buildings comprising the Sweeney family’s first proposal for their West Seattle Triangle holdings, including the site of their legacy business, Alki Lumber. (The other building, 4440 Fauntleroy Way SW, will be reviewed at 4 pm August 20th.) Information on how to watch/listen to today’s meeting is here – registration required – along with information on how to comment on the project. The design packet for today’s meeting is here; our recent preview is here.

    Inuit people have 50 different words for snow. In Seattle we have 50 different words for beige.

      What does the beige  color pallet  have do with inuit language?  “Navajo White” is part of the “Off-White” collection of paint colors that may soon be retired by the trending social justice movement. Beige on the other hand, is free of such linguistic challenges and far more vanilla.

    ARRGH!! Meeting change from 6:30 to 4pm???This means that anyone who wanted to follow this process is going to be left out because of a meeting time change the day of the meeting. Stuff like this makes a mockery of what is left of the design review process.

      I don’t know that they changed the meeting time only today – I checked the page on the city website late last night, preparing for today, and noticed it.

    The canyonization of West Seattle continues!

      Yep! It is wonderful that we are building enough housing where everyone can live in Seattle and not just the rich. If we keep this up for a few more years rents might stabilize and home prices might increase at a sane pace rather than a break neck pace. Keep up the good work!!

    This is an awesome idea, beautiful design and just what West Seattle needs!

    Is this the meeting where we discuss changes to the street or is that a separate process?  I’m not sure if “massing” is really related to the proposed parking changes, right of way swaps, lack of a bike lane (though one is indicated in the BMP), and how to voice my desire for SDOT to instead close the north end of 36th to vehicles for bollards for the safety of those who will use Fauntleroy Blvd/maintaining flow of traffic on Fauntleroy.  People trying to turn onto 36th SB would be particularly disruptive.

      I don’t know if it is or not but I submitted comments for 1) no back-in angle parking2) a protected bike lane3) 14′ sidewalks on both sides of the streetThis project has a TON of underground parking so why is so much needed on the street?

    Nice bldg design and specifically happy at the parking count.  Some developers don’t do any, so this is a good thing.  Dear Design review, please dont ask them to lower the parking count.  Thank you.

      After a full century of not providing any parking at Alki Lumber while constantly using and often blocking Seattle ROWs, the Sweeneys couldn’t avoid some parking for their “legacy hardware.” 

  • Stevie J August 6, 2020 (4:37 pm)

    I would prefer there to be way fewer than the proposed 186 automobile residences, but I really hope they don’t go with 300 of them! Please build more housing for humans and fewer houses for automobiles. The more parking you build, the more people will drive, and the faster our planet will melt. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
