DEVELOPMENT: Key approval for Junction project; another South Delridge proposal

Two development notes:

4401 42ND SW APPROVAL: The city has given a key approval to the 5-story apartment building planned to replace the former Ginomai arts-studios building at 42nd/Genesee. It’s expected to include 72 “small efficiency dwelling units” – microapartments – and 5 live-work units, with 36 offstreet parking places. We first reported on the proposal in May of last year. The decision means appeals can be filed until October 5th; this notice explains how.

9038 21ST SW: South Delridge’s development boom continues. City files show an early-stage proposal for a 3-story (plus basement) building with 21 apartments, replacing a house on what’s now a Lowrise 1-zoned lot. The preliminary site plan shows Atelier Drome as the architecture firm.

    God, I hope the dreary colors in the drawing are not the final colors. How drab and boring.

      I dunno, I think it looks pretty nice (for an apartment of this kind). Has a northwesty vibe.

    Why would anyone add 36 parking stalls to a SEDU project that is inside an urban village where no parking is required because the frequent transit is mere blocks away?

      Because people have cars? The real question is where are the rest going to park

        Someone with common sense.
        All is not lost.

      Because frequent transit to my workplace in Kent is 2 1/2 hours.Or 40 minutes in my evil car.Guess which one I’d choose?

    Another addition to West Seattle’s growing collection of Khrushchyovka.
