Mixed use self storage facility coming to former funeral home site in White Center
The site of the former Yarington's Funeral Home, which burned down on July 8, last year, at 10708 16th SW in White Center is now going to be a self storage facility, according to a public notice filed July 19.
A corporation called WA SS 16 AVE 20, LLC out of Miami, Florida filed the notice regarding their plan to build the facility there, which will require soil disturbance. That meant they had to file notice with the Washington State Department of Ecology to declare where the runoff from construction activities would go. In this case, it's going to nearby Mallard Lake.
Here's the public notice
WA SS 16 AVE 20, LLC, 80 S.W. 8th Street, Suite 2000, Miami, FL 33130, is seeking coverage under the Washington State Department of Ecology's Construction Stormwater NPDES and State Waste Discharge General Permit. The proposed project, West Seattle Mixed Use Self Storage, is located at 16th Avenue S.W. and S.W. 107th Street in Seattle, in King County. This project involves 1.0 acre of soil disturbance for commercial construction activities. The receiving water is Mallard Lake.
Any persons desiring to present their views to the Washington State Department of Ecology regarding this application, or interested in Ecology's action on this application, may notify Ecology in writing no later than 30 days of the last date of publication of this notice. Ecology reviews public comments and considers whether discharges from this project would cause a measurable change in receiving water quality, and, if so, whether the project is necessary and in the overriding public interest according to Tier II antidegradation requirements under WAC 173-201A-320.

The West Seattle Mixed Use Storage Project, at SW 107th Street in unincorporated King County, is currently under review with King County Permitting and the Department of Ecology (DOE). While the county will regulate development and environmental requirements, soil contaminant determinations are regulated by DOE.
The applicant is seeking coverage under the Washington State Department of Ecology's Construction Stormwater NPDES and State Waste Discharge General Permit, because it is a drainage to Mallard Lake. While the formal comment period has elapsed, both King County Permitting and the Department of Ecology will continue to accept comments from persons desiring to present their views on these permit applications.
