Things have actually picked up a bit in the development world for the first week of February, but the story is mostly the same as 2007 – townhouses, townhouses, and more townhouses:
First up is 2051 Madison, next door to the Safeway. There’s an application to tear down the building where the Twilight Exit currently resides and replace it with a six story building containing 96 apartments, ground-floor retail, and 104 below-grade parking spaces.

There’s a one-story 50’s era duplex at 403 30th Ave E in Madison Valley that will soon be coming down and replaced with two single-family residences.
A vacant lot on the southeast corner of 31st & Yesler will be replaced by a duplex townhouse and a single family residence. This is right across the street from Leschi Elementary and on the downhill slope towards Lake Washington, so the new properties should have a peek-a-boo view from their top floors.
Head south to 906 26th Ave S, and you’ll find a townhouse development currently in the framing stage. The developer has applied to subdivide the lot so that each unit can be sold individually
Just behind that and a few lots south there is a vacant lot that sits high above MLK. The owner of that property got approval to subdivide the lot into six pieces to accommodate the sale of the units in two separate townhouse triplexes.
And finally over at 1918 Spruce St, you find a lot where they’re pouring the foundations for a townhouse development, and the developer there has received approval to subdivide the lot into four pieces:
