Construction is getting underway at the site in the 3200 block of Avalon Way for a 120 unit apartment complex with the erection of a crane for the purpose. The project will complete by September 2013 if all goes according to developer's plans.

Crane going up on Avalon Way for $13 million apartment project

Progress is continuing on the $13 million 120 unit, apartment project on Avalon Way backed by developer David Meissner and designed by Nicholson Kovalchick Architects, a West Seattle company located above Easy Street Records in the Junction.

The construction crane for the project went up on Tuesday Oct. 23 for the H-shaped, residential-only complex which will likely be complete by September of 2013.

The building will have a wide variety of apartment options, from studios to lofts to one and two-bedroom units. A portion of the building will be workforce housing – spaces set aside at a fixed lower rent in exchange for tax incentives from the city.

There will be parking for 118 vehicles – mostly underground with a few ground level spots.
