Shoring is complete and earth movers are making room for an underground parking garage at what will eventually become a seven-story mixed use apartment complex at the corner of 42nd and Oregon in West Seattle. Completion is expected around a year from now.

Progress report for seven-story apartment complex at 42nd and Oregon

There is another sizeable hole being dug in West Seattle to make room for a seven story, mixed-use apartment and retail complex at 4502 42nd Ave S.W. (at the corner of 42nd and Oregon, just north of QFC near the Junction).

The building is being developed by ConAm Management Corporation, based out of San Diego, CA, and spokesperson Mike Mahoney provided the updates:

ConAm hopes to have the building finished by late summer/early fall of 2013 and just finished shoring the foundation so construction can proceed.

The complex will have 131 live-in units, 2 live-work lofts and 2900 square feet of retail at ground level (no word yet on what kind of retail). There will be underground parking for 137 vehicles.

Three existing homes were demolished earlier this summer to make room for the project.

Mahoney said his company is “really excited to be in the West Seattle area,” and believes the 360 degree views of Puget Sound, Mt. Rainier and downtown Seattle from the rooftop deck will be a big plus for tenants.
