Home torn down on 48th and Fremont

house torn down in Fremont

This home was recently torn down, with some new townhouses on the way.  No notice was posted about the construction or tear down.  Does anyone know about the laws for posting this information?  Is the “Notice of Land-Use” only required for the construction, and not the tear down?  Admittedly the home was an eye-sore, with most neighbors welcoming the demolition, however some questions remain about the process.

    The web page for permit status is http://web1.seattle.gov/DPD/permitstatus/

    I did a search for the entire block since I don’t know the exact address (or which side of the street–remember in Seattle addresses are west&south/odd, east&north/even. A permit is required for 1) demolition, 2) subdividing land to permit condos, 3) construction. Other reviews may occur, like design review, and SEPA for larger projects.

    Since there are no permits or applications for demolition or construction on that block in the past ten years (4809 had both in 1999-2000–should be a fourplex at that address), I’m putting in a complaint/inquiry at http://web1.seattle.gov/dpd/complaintform/

    Update: I neglected to look SOUTH of the intersection with 48th. The address for this property is 4717 Fremont Ave. N. Demolish permit is # 6289518.

    There is an application for unit lot subdivision at Project # 3012949, and “Land use application to subdivide one development site into four unit lots. The construction of residential units has been approved under Project #6282505.”

    The construction permit process is at 725 N. 48th: http://web1.seattle.gov/DPD/permitstatus/Project.aspx?id=6282505

    The project looks pretty standard (“Construct East 2-unit Row House (Units C & D) with attached garage. (Construct two-2 unit townhouses with attached garages. (Review and process under AP# 6282505)”) and the permit was issued November 15, 2011. In other words, there was no design review, SEPA, or other opportunity for public comment other than a short window when they applied last July.
