This is from the most recent published early design guide proposal. It's being developed by well known West Seattle developer Leon Capelouto whose other projects include Capco Plaza on Alaska Street SW and the AJ Apartments on SW Oregon Street. Caron Architecture Wed, 10/09/2019 A Land Use Application to allow a 7-story building with 44 apartment units, 14 small efficiency dwelling units (58 units total), lodging and retail. Parking for 17 vehicles proposed. The existing building will be destroyed. Original post July 2018 Well known West Seattle developer Leon Capelouto, whose projects have included Capco Plaza (home to QFC, Petco and his own Capco Liquors) on Alaska Street SW and the more recently completed AJ Apartments on SW Oregon Street is behind the West Seattle Junction's newest development. A seven story, 79 unit apartment building with 20 parking stalls is proposed for the addresses spanning: 4508 CALIFORNIA AVE SW, 4510 CALIFORNIA AVE SW, 4512 CALIFORNIA AVE SW and 4514 CALIFORNIA AVE SW. The project is up for an early design guidance meeting on Aug. 2 at the West Seattle Senior Center at 6:30pm The full design proposal is found here. (42 mb) It is being designed by Caron Architecture and is project number 3032079. From the Design Proposal: DEVELOPMENT OBJECTIVES This proposal intends to develop a five to six level multifamily residential structure with one lodging level, commercial retail shops at grade, and one level of below grade parking. California Avenue street frontage will be comprised of ground level commercial use and a residential entrance lobby. Services, below grade parking, loading and residential move in/out access is located off the alley. The objective is to provide new multifamily and commercial retail uses that contribute to and further activate the vibrant Junction streetscape. SUMMARY STATEMENT The site is located one parcel south of SW Oregon Street and on the east side of California Avenue SW in the West Seattle Junction District. The site is presently occupied by three one story retail shops, West Seattle Cyclery, Lee’s Asian and Kamei Japanese Restaurant. The topographical high point along California Avenue SW is at the north border and slopes approximately 1’-1/2” north to south. The site is in an area of increasing density and is transitioning to mixed use and multifamily residential while maintaining a strong retail core within the Junction. The street frontage along California Avenue has narrow sidewalks with parallel street parking spaces. A Midblock pedestrian crosswalk is located just south of the site and is frequently used by pedestrians. The streetscape provides grade level retail access with overhead weather protection, street trees, and pole mounted flower baskets. No overhead utility wires are currently present.   Robinson Papers West Seattle Herald Comments Submitted by Katherine (not verified) on Tue, 07/17/2018 - 11:51pm Permalink There is no way 20 parking… There is no way 20 parking spots is enough for that many units. There is not enough street parking in the area for the new tenant cars. Submitted by Lew Mattson (not verified) on Wed, 07/18/2018 - 10:18am Permalink 78 Units and 20 parking… 78 Units and 20 parking stalls. Sounds like a great plan. Enjoy West Seattle's continuing march towards perpetual gridlock. Progress is awesome!

Submitted by Christine Cranston (not verified) on Thu, 07/19/2018 - 11:51am Permalink Sadly, another ugly design… Sadly, another ugly design and not enough parking for the number of units. The developers strive for the cheapest possible building designs. West Seattle is becoming an area of boxes. So sad to see my beloved neighborhood get uglier, more crowded, stuffed with traffic and no open space for humans, dogs or plants.
