Some unique restaurant news hits West Seattle this week: the 103-year-old residential home at 6921 California SW may become a second branch of Chungee's Chinese restaurant in Capitol Hill, reports West Seattle Blog, branded Chungee's West. Documents are currently filed with the city seeking a contract rezone for the space in busy Morgan Junction, which would involve renovation and an addition to the house to make it into a restaurant. Sound like a big undertaking? No doubt, but the Chungee's proprietors have a vested interest in this specific space. They already own it, for one, and if the rezoning is approved, their plan is to live upstairs above the restaurant.
Check out the site plan in more detail on West Seattle Blog. Per the blog, "Any rezone will need City Council approval. Now that the city has formally accepted the application, a comment period should open soon - watch the Land Use Information Bulletin, which is published Mondays and Thursdays, for that."
