About Safeway's Lifestyle store
Safeway's new format, introduced several years ago, brings customers all the conveniences and choices they have come to expect in a quality, modern supermarket. The new format includes an earth-toned décor, subdued lighting, custom flooring and unique display features to a warm ambiance that enhances the shopping experience. This format showcases enhanced service departments, such as floral, produce, deli/food service, bakery, meat and seafood and emphasizes high-quality perishable products and prepared foods.

The new store will continue to promote the character and nature of this part of West Seattle. Creating an open, inviting atmosphere that defines why people will consider this to be the Admiral Neighborhood's "town center". In addition to a new grocery store, the project will include a separate small retail building on California Avenue, as well as an apartment and flex office building. The building on 42nd Avenue not only provides more housing and offices for the neighborhood, but it also is designed to screen the back wall and loading dock of the store.

Admiral Safeway Retail Building

New retail building
The old Safeway will be razed and the new store will be constructed to face California Avenue, making it much more pedestrian-friendly and engaging for the community.


There are two levels of free parking. There is surface parking on the ground floor, north of the store and a second level of parking on the roof of the store. Store entrances are located at both corners and a mid-block location on California Avenue, as well as on the rooftop parking deck.

Admiral Safeway Seating Areas

The new store is designed to make your shopping trip convenient and enjoyable.


There will be a large, covered outdoor seating area at the corner of California Avenue and Lander Street, which is open to the public. There is also a two-level indoor seating area adjacent to the Starbucks kiosk. With a fireplace on each level, this area will be a welcoming place to enjoy a cup of coffee or a meal from our deli.

history of Safeway in Admiral
Safeway has strong roots in the Admiral community. Safeway began serving Admiral when it built its store 50 years ago. Since then it has been expanded and remodeled twice to improve the services provided to our customers. It is now time to re-invest in an entirely new store that will offer the best selection of groceries and specialty departments that Safeway has to offer. Safeway welcomes the opportunity to provide a newly enhanced store for the community to gather and shop.
