The backhoes have been busy tearing down a single story apartment complex on Othello Street SW to make way for six homes to be built on the site.

Six homes will be built on Othello Street, just north of Lincoln Park

If you've driven west on Othello Street SW off Fauntleroy Way SW you've probably seen the demolition underway there.

The backhoes are out and tearing down a single level apartment complex on the corner of S.W. Othello St. and 47th Ave S.W., just north of Lincoln Park in West Seattle. In fact it's gone by now.

According to Seattle Department of Planning and Development documents, demolition is making room for Seattle developer Build Urban’s project to construct six new homes on the lot at 4615 S.W. Othello St.

Build Urban, at their website (, proclaims the homes should be done by summer 2013 and “Built Green 4 star,” with rooftop deck views of Puget Sound.
