Seven story, 233 unit bldg and four story 49 unit building proposed for Fauntleroy Way SW

Design Review meeting set for July 20

The CVS pharmacy that was heading for 4722 Fauntleroy Way SW was pulled last year and since then the site has sat in relative limbo as the Whittaker project went through its own changes with the pullout of Whole Foods.

Now a Design Review Early Design Guidance application has finally been filed proposing a 7-story building containing 233 residential units, 17 live-work units, and 10,000 sq. ft. of commercial space for 4722 Fauntleroy Way SW and a 14,500 sq. foot building next door at 4712 Fauntleroy Way SW. That one is a four-story building containing one live-work unit and 49 residential units.

Parking to be provided for 250 vehicles within the structure. Existing structure would be demolished.

A design review meeting to discuss them both is coming up.

OPPORTUNITY FOR COMMENT

The Director will accept written comments to assist in the preparation of the early design guidance through July 20, 2017. You are invited to offer comments regarding important site planning and design issues, which you believe, should be addressed in the design for this project.

PROCESS

An application for Design Review related to future development of this site has been submitted to the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections (SDCI). The first phase of Design Review includes the Early Design Guidance (EDG) meeting. At the Early Design Guidance meeting, the following occurs:

The applicants will present information about the site and vicinity as well as early massing design concepts.
The public may offer comments regarding the design of a development on the subject site.*
The Design Review Board will provide guidance and identify those Design Guidelines of highest priority for the design as it moves forward towards Master Use Permit (MUP) application.
Following the meeting, SDCI will issue a written Early Design Guidance report summarizing the meeting. This report will be sent to those who signed in at the meeting or otherwise requested a copy.

*Please note that public comment at the EDG meeting is limited to design considerations. If environmental review is triggered, comments related to environmental impacts (such as traffic, parking, noise, etc.) may be sent to SDCI following notice of that review.
