This plan projects a 37% increase in Fauntleroy/Southwroth riders by 2040, and a 19% increase in Vashon/Fauntleroy riders. The plan also appears to include enhancements to the Fauntleroy Ferry Dock and Terminal, and vessel replacement among other things.

The details are on page 55 of this City Council Staff Memo.. (The pages are numbered strangely. After letting the document load, search for “Amendment E3: Parking requirements near the Fauntleroy ferry terminal”)

On Oct. 30, the West Seattle Blog reported a proposed rezoning of the Joslin Building at 9250 45th SW in the heart of Fauntleroy’s retail area. On Nov. 8, representatives of the FCA Board met with the two owners to confirm the report and better understand their intentions so that FCA could begin an informed discussion with the community.
One of the owners lives in the Arroyos and the other is a former Seattle resident now living in Tacoma. At the meeting, they confirmed the Blog’s account and their desire to replace the existing structure with a 5-story mixed-use building with no on-site parking. It would have commercial on the bottom floor and 32 apartments above, each measuring 400 - 500 square feet.
