An early design review meeting is set for a proposed 50 unit 7 story mixed use apartment building to be constructed at 4505 42nd Ave. S.W. on Oregon Street. The meeting is at the West Seattle Senior Center, Jan. 30, 6:30 p.m.

The Senior Center is located at 4217 S.W. Oregon Street, which happens to be just adjacent to the proposed building site.

The site is owned by West Seattle's Leon Capelouto, owner/developer of Capco Plaza on Alaska Street. NK Architects are the designers.
