City Council passes West Seattle Triangle rezoning | West Seattle Herald / White Center News

A unanimous vote from Seattle’s City Council approved rezoning changes for West Seattle’s Triangle on Dec. 19, leading the way for new developments and streetscapes to transform the area confined by Fauntleroy Ave to the northwest, 35th Ave to the east and Alaska St. to the south.

Here are the specifics of the resolution as presented by Councilmember Tom Rasmussen

Rezone from Commercial 1 to Neighborhood Commercial 3, described by the city as “a larger pedestrian-oriented shopping district serving the surrounding neighborhood and a larger community, citywide or regional clientele; allowing comparison shopping among a range of retail businesses.”

“It encourages pedestrian-friendly development while allowing existing buildings to continue to operate and that’s important to the community,” Rasmussen said prior to the vote, mentioning Tom’s Automotive (no relation) and Alki Lumber as examples.

Additionally, the resolution proposes the establishment of a “pedestrian designation” along S.W. Alaska St. between the junction business district and 35th Ave S.W. to encourage the walkable connection between the Junction and Triangle business districts.
