Design review coming up for Alki Landing mixed use project

The proposed mixed use apartment/retail project at 2626 Alki Ave SW is the subject of a Southwest Design Review Meeting July 17, 6:30 pm at the West Seattle Senior Center 4217 SW Oregon St

This is an EDG or Early Design Guidance meeting for the project dubbed the Alki Landing being developed by Borge Steinsvik

Steinsvik owns the 13,700 ft. lot that Alki Beach Properties and Saigon Boat Café currently call home. Roger H Newell AIA Architects have produced the proposal (see the link above that call for a mixed-use residential and commercial space with surface parking and “one or two eating establishments on the main floor of the building with possible commercial uses on the upper floors.”

The proposal calls for a 3-story structure containing 13 residential units in 11,561 sq. feet, 2 retail/restaurant spaces in 3716 sq. feet, 5 office spaces in 6421 sq. feet Existing structures would be demolished and 23 ground level parking stalls would be provided.

Newell had previously explained the preferred design direction:

“Our preferred design will include a terraced façade along Alki Avenue and a portion of S.W. 59th which will provide the necessary clearances from the existing power lines. We are proposing a strong structural solution where the structure defines the architecture. The project is proposed to meet the LEED silver requirements" (guidelines for green, energy efficient designs).
