In the December newsletter Neighbors we discussed the proposed teardown and replacement of the Joslin Building at 9250 45th Ave SW. We want to update the Community with what is happening and what we understand from the owners and the City.Read More...
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.Read More...
