58 unit, 5 parking space apartments in Junction up for design review Sept. 3

A 58 unit studio apartment building with five parking spaces is proposed for construction at 4528 44th Ave SW and is up for a design review on Sept. 3

Project # 3019125 has been the subject of some legal wrangling as reported by Seattle P.I. in June. The P.I. reported that the developer of the project filed suit against the City of Seattle in an attempt to avoid "paying off low-income tenants currently living in a building slated for demolition."

The P.I. story explains that the developer contends that the tenants are not eligible for city-mandated relocation payments due to leases signed after the building was purchased. The developer maintains that the tenants must vacate because the lease will expire before the building is demolished.

SLIDESHOW: Westside School ribbon cutting welcomes the community to its new location

Westside School founded in 1981, celebrated the move into its permanent home with a ribbon cutting, tours, food trucks and more on Saturday Aug. 29 at 11am. The even had been planned to be held outdoors but the weather forced a move into the schools new auditorium. The school is located at 10404 34TH Ave. SW.

The school has been in several places in the community, sharing space with Explorer West for a few years, before moving to E.C. Hughes for the last five years. Now after 13 and a half months of construction and many months in planning before that, and $15.5 million, they are ready to welcome students.

Construction at the new location began in early in 2013. The building is a complete renovation of the former Hillcrest Presbyterian Church and features 53,000 square feet dedicated to teaching and learning: 27 classrooms; light-filled, child centered work spaces; a new library; separate, team-oriented middle school classrooms; a 450 seat auditorium; green space, and warm and inviting gathering spaces where students, teachers, parents and visitors can connect, share and meet.
