...
Dark rumors began to circulate about Dan Duffus, the developer behind the project. On the website of his company, Soleil, he boasts of being a former Seattle chair of the Master Builders Association and a frequent participant in city focus groups.
...
It did not help when neighbors found out that Duffus, along with an array of builders he works with, was taking advantage of a zoning loophole that allows building on certain undersized lots whose existence can only be discovered in historical documents.
...
Dan Duffus lives on Sunset Ave Southwest in West Seattle in an apparently quality built modern style house.
...
Dan has even admitted/boasted that his main goal in life is to double his income every year.
An example: Purchase an oversize lot with house for $370K, teardown house, buy a bit of land from neighbor in back for $10 k, get DPD to issue a variance and cut it into 2 parcels, scrape lots, build 2-2200 sf houses that take up the whole lot for $150k each, sell each house for $800K. walk away after 6 months with a cool $500,000+ in profit after paying realtors, and everyone else.
I'm not against quality builds that add value to a neighborhood or making money for that matter, but these, in my opinion, in the long run will only negatively impact any neighborhoods where they are built and Duffus walks away with the cash and his middle finger in the air. Not one neighbor to one of these things has said they were happy that Dan Duffus came to their neighborhood and built a skinny house in a side yard or back yard on their block. NOT ONE!
...
Are those the local jobs being created by Dan Duffus? The first floor has now been framed and it is truly astounding to see how it literally fills the entire construction site. The bottom of the structure will be a garage, since the site is literally so narrow that parking a car in front curbside would mean a singe parking space for a three story structure. Everything about this building project -from sale to permitting to construction- reeks of inept city governance and private greed. The only thing "green" about Dan Duffus and his City Council enablers is the money he is banking at the expense of Seattle's very fragile neighborhood culture. Check out onehomeperlot.com/stop-it/ for more info and drive by some of his building sites to see if you'd like the same thing to happen on your street.
...
The entire neighborhood is beyond unhappy, and it is pretty hard to imagine anything but a frosty reception for Dan Duffus' customers.
...
Dan Duffus's comments would have more legitimacy if he made an attempt to match the character of the area. Instead he mines the value of a historic and desirable area.
...
Dan Duffus is the Best man i have ever known!!!...[next to my father and son]
...
I've watched one go up, Duffus uses the cheapest labor and the cheapest materials to build these things.
