43 West Seattle units moving slowly toward MUP

The last design review for a small SEDU project at 4515 44th Ave. S.W. in West Seattle was in the fall of 2020. The next will be on Friday, in a purely administrative presentation. Blueprint Capital will evidently buy and redevelop the small midblock parcel, now with two small old commercial buildings, after a master use permit is issued. The site is a block west of the Alaska Junction commercial strip.

Numbers haven’t changed much: 43 small efficiency dwelling units in a four-story building with no parking stalls. Total project size is about 19,000 square feet, including amenities.

Blueprint typically acts as its own architect and general contractor. The team now also includes Swenson Say Faget, structural engineer; Davido Consulting Group, civil; and Root of Design, landscape architect.

Three units will be affordable, per Mandatory Housing Affordability requirements. Tenants will have 43 bike stalls and a club room with over 1,000 square feet. That’s to have a bar, co-working space and reading room.

The property last traded in 1996 for $350,000.
