West Seattle Blog… » Design Review tentatively set for 4535 44th SW ‘microapartments’

No parking proposed…awesome. Of program every 1 of those occupants will use public transit or ride their bikes. Of course.

There is plenty of totally free avenue parking accessible all the way down the hill from forty fourth and all the way up the hill, to the summit of Genesee Hill, 56th. And to the still left blocks, and to the proper blocks, off Genesee. Free of charge PARKING.

Really don't be concerned about it. Wise Cars to Lincoln Clown Automobiles. Plenty of Free PARKING available. All over, just west of the Alaska Junction.

And North and South of the Alaska Junction, as well, for that matter.

Unbelievable! I have no objection to this creating â€" but to not have some parking associated with it is preposterous.

Remark by Gene â€" seven:24 pm April 9, 2013 #

So ‘micro’ didn’t examination nicely in target teams?

A creating with 34 units should have some parking. Looking at the web site, I’d genuinely like to know just what the hell the metropolis is considering. Glenn Way is previously crowded with parked cars usually enough, to presume that inhabitants wouldn’t personal automobiles is the dumbest point the town has ever done.

Until you make it a necessity that you not very own a motor automobile to dwell in that place, it is going to make the parking situation even worse.

So there will be 34 “units” of microhousing (studios) the place currently there are…6? And no parking since plainly the triangular great deal can not have parking. I ponder if they will market that renters/owners have no parking? Of program they will…right?

I lived in the pike location marketplace Stewart house for a couple of years. Identical concept- tiny units with shared place. Shut to facilities. No parking needed. Individuals were some of the very best many years! So free from the vehicle.

This is **not** a judgment on this specific undertaking but â€" regar ding the idea of small models and no parking, here’s anything to keep in mind, if you don’t have a teenager or younger adult in your daily life and as a result haven’t witnessed this firsthand: Less young individuals are driving. Here’s a single latest citation of the stats:

Effectively how about we wait around until finally the models are rented & then consider & study the citizens & see if none of them have a automobile. Not expressing there wants to be parking for every single unit but SOME should be a component of design. Can not rememberâ€" is the road there posted two hr restrict till after 6?

How a lot of buildings in this triangle will be taken off?

Remark by Nw â€" 10:01 pm April nine, 2013 #

How several properties in this triangular good deal will be removed? If any person has an concept remember to share it. Thanks

Comment by Nw â€" 10:02 pm April 9, 2013 #

I believe just the one but will double verify the documentation which is on file now. The good deal is three,770 toes.

Remark by WSB â€" 10:34 pm April nine, 2013 #

The lots only 3770sqft???!!!! That’s significantly less than 50 percent the size of my lawn. Wow. I’m picturing 34 units next to my house… I’m a proponent of density but it’s ironic how that puts a distinct spin on it.

“Transit accessibility” is type of irrelevant considering that there is no telling when Metro may slash provider hours and coverage in the spot. I suggest there must be a parking strategy for visitors and overnight visitors even however people may well not have autos..

I lived in a two hundred sf apartment in my younger days, sans vehicle and loved it. No parking was offered by my building, no one essential it. And this was twenty many years back in a a lot larger city than Seattle.

Remark by ann@wcfb â€" 6:21 am April 10, 2013 #

when I moved out to Seattle, to go to grad college and then to perform downtown for a couple of a long time, my car was much more of a load than an asset. i usually forgot exactly where my automobile was parked, i drove it so rarely. that was six many years of dwelling in U district and cap hill where i barely ever drove (of program possibly bus services was much better there than listed here, now). now that i have kids, and simply cannot manage to dwell within strolling distance of neighborhood features, i could not think about not getti ng a automobile.

change your standpoint when you think about these factors. some people really do not generate as considerably as you do.

Comment by sam-c â€" 7:fifteen am April ten, 2013 #

I ponder if that research looked at how numerous millenials nevertheless lived at residence?

Also, was it place-extensive or just for DC? Perhaps they ought to do a condition by condition investigation ahead of we go dealing with it as gospel. For all we know, WA motorists licenses could be on the enhance with metropolis centers that have good transit alternatives dragging the regular down.

Remark by Civik â€" seven:21 am April ten, 2013 #

I surprise if the new building will have bicycle ‘parking’, and probably a place for bike mend.

Remark by outdated timer â€" 7:22 am April ten, 2013 #

To the query about which structures will be demolished: I rechecked the files in the city’s on-line file (which really do not have direct back links or I’d hyperlink them here). This parcel is only portion of the “triangular” whole lot in that block â€" and only the modest business creating witnessed in our photo, obviously labeled 4535, is scheduled to appear down.

Remark by WS B â€" eight:07 am April ten, 2013 #

Parking, I think, is in fact a creating code problem. It might be that a developing this size is basically not needed by the town to offer parking. It is a very good matter to provide up for the duration of the assembly because sometimes developers and the city allowing place of work (I feel ) will reassess parking demands if there is explanation to do so â€" these kinds of as recorded neighbor considerations about simplicity of obtain, documented lack of parking access at different moments of day (images of street parking in the am, throughout perform hrs and evening).

Remark by Heather â€" eight:33 am April 10, 2013 #

The parking waiver loophole is a horrible concept because it assumes ample transit. What will take place if Metro further cuts provider to the spot?

Comment by Kdsea â€" eight:47 am April ten, 2013 #

No parking = no developing permit.

Remark by Marty â€" 8:55 am April ten, 2013 #

Actually it is the shockingly substantial value for each sq. foot of these little residences that is so incorrect!
