City document show a 6-story apartment may be in the works at the corner of 35th and Avalon in West Seattle, on Huling family land where The Bridge bar and eatery currently resides.
Big plans for another big building at the corner of 35th and Avalon?
Currently home to The Bridge bar and eatery at the corner of 35th Ave. S.W. and S.W. Avalon St., a land use application submitted to the city shows there may be plans in the works to turn the current Huling family-owned property into another sizable apartment building for West Seattle.
The application for 4435 35th Ave. S.W. appears to consist of The Bridge building and parking lot, and calls for “a six-story structure with 150 residential units above eight live-work units (10,615 sq. ft.) in an environmentally critical area. Parking for 158 vehicles will be located at and below grade. Existing eating and drinking establishment will be demolished. Project revised since original application.”
Partners at The Bridge (Ahmed Almukhtar, Rita Dixson, Jenny Almukhtar and Trevor Garand) already have plans in place to move to the old Chuck and Sally’s Tavern in the Morgan Junction on California Ave. S.W.
City documents show Steven D. Huling originally submitted an application for this project on July 1, 2011. The application showed back up in Seattle’s Department of Planning and Development weekly update on August 1 (2013) with a new contact of Jodi-Patterson-O’Hare, listed online as a consultant with Permit Consultants NW (they help people navigate the permitting process).
We’ve reached out to the Huling family and Patterson-O’Hare for an update on where this potential project stands.
