FOLLOWUP: 4508 California SW demolition update

If you were in The Junction for the West Seattle Farmers’ Market, and/or other business, today, you might have noticed that after a week, the demolition is done at the 4508 California SW mixed-use project site (we reported on its start this past Tuesday). Also as of a few days ago, part of the parking lot east of the alley is fenced off:

On the California side of the site, the sidewalk remains open, as stipulated in the construction-management plan, with scaffolding and plywood currently hiding the work. The alley is open too but subject to intermittent closures. Re-reading the plan today, we also note a slightly different description of the 7-story project – 38 apartments, 20 Small Efficiency Dwelling Units (microapartments), 12 lodging units, 3,500 square feet of commercial space, and 14 offstreet-parking spaces, all but 1 underground. The plan says construction is expected to last just under a year and a half.

    What are they blocking the parking for?  I mean that is across the alley and elevated from the grade at which they are working.   Is this a diamond parking question, or a junction association question?

      My guess would be for an office trailer, equipment and materials. They can’t store this stuff in the same footprint the building will use.

    Developer  is part owner of the parking lot.

    70 living units and 14 parking spots.  Get ready.  Here come the parking meters!

    Have a car? Move someplace else. Simple.

    Also, shop somewhere else because there will be nowhere to park when you drive in from far away places.

Sorry, comment time is over.
