Genesee Flats

As planned, West Seattle Christian Church has sold its corner property at 4205 S.W. Genesee St. — not the actual church building across the street — to an LLC related to Blueprint Capital. King Country recorded the $2.1 million sale on Tuesday. The deal was worth about $183 per square foot.

Blueprint and Cone Architecture obtained a master use permit last fall for a five-story, 77-unit redevelopment plan. Genesee Flats will replace the two-story Community Building, which dates to 1956. The demolition permit has been issued, and the construction permit is still pending.

Genesee Flats will be mostly SEDUs (small efficiency dwelling units), along with five live/work units at grade. There will be one level of underground parking with 28 stalls; another eight surface stalls will go on the alley to the west. Tenants will have 71 bike stalls.

Blueprint will apparently build the project. The team also includes Root of Design, landscape architect; Riley Group, geotechnical engineer; Emerald Land Surveying.; Greenlake Engineering, civil; Swenson Say Faget, structural.

Units will range from around 320 to 600 square feet, and five will be will be affordable — per Mandatory Housing Affordability requirements. Total project size is about 47,000 square feet, including a roof deck.
