Bluestar projected that construction for Gateway Center would start in late 2009 and wind up in early 2011.

Shoreline, WA-based developer, BlueStar Management Incorporated, announced its intention of building this six-story mixed-use development at the junction of Fauntleroy Way and Southwest Alaska Street in West Seattle. This mixed-use project, expected to comprise of approximately 100 apartment units, 47,000-square-feet of retail space and a 250-car parking garage, was the developer's second at this intersection. As was typical in Seattle at this time, this mixed-use development followed the familiar six-story format, with the first two floors of retail space (constructed of reinforced concrete) on which rested four floors of wood-framed apartments. Fauntleroy Place, across the street, was announced a few months earlier. In addition, it was known that BlueStar on 03/27/2008, was looking to build a third mixed-use project in West Seattle called "Spring Hill" on California Avenue SW. The Huling Brothers Buick Dealership once occupied this site.
