It was only a matter of time before the simmering dislike of townhomes in West Seattle bubbled over into violence.
The Stranger rang the warning bell, and it was not heeded.
I'm not a fan of the cookie-cutter suburban townhomes shoe-horned into the city either. However, I get equally fed up with West Seattlites hand-wringing over their "unique and special" neighborhood. Remember their bruhaha over the proposed monorail? Much of the construction in West Seattle are simple, lame post-war bungalows and ranch homes. The 1956 version of townhomes really. Chill out people. Love West Seattle, but sometimes feel they need to get over themselves.
I'm betting one of these activista West Seattle residents burned it down for the reasons stated in #3.
It's one thing to be an anti-townhome snob. But terrorism? West Seattle is spawning snob terrorists. Didn't see that one coming.
Makes you wish the sea level would hurry up and rise.
Unique and special neighborhood? I thought people lived in West Seattle cause they couldn't afford to live closer in. I rarely go there (why would I?) but it looks like one step away from suburbia to me.
The anti-townhome sentiment is a red herring. I'm betting on a builder cutting his losses with a little insurance fraud.
I agree with #7. I live in West Seattle and hate all the new townhomes too but I'm sad that someone did this on purpose for whatever reasons because people were hurt, not just the crappy townhouses.
