Oh, I just love Abercrombie Baby ziggurat-shaped urban densifications!
Seriously... What is that?
Infill? What a hunk of crappy jargon. Kind of worse than densification.
But I'm still pumped for H&M.
about New District - they'll all have such great views of I-5!!! depressing
Thank god they are starting to build up the U-District. Apartment prices are insane.
Wow! Giant ceremonial stairs to nowhere! They've really thought of everything now.
@5 - they have some at Gasworks Park too - totally unusable, in practice.
"Base Capital"? What a terrific name. I assume they're affiliated with Al-qaeda.
Dominic. Instead of writing about the developers, perhaps you could write about the effect that the gentrification of the U-District area has had on undergrad students at the UW?
Many of them are now living at home well into their 20s because most of the group houses that used to cater to them have been sold, apartments are being turned into condos, tuition and dorm costs keep rising, and new apartments like the one you describe are not likely to adequately meet their student income needs.
70th is the new 47th!
Trevor, grad students live for the ability to tell other people how hard they have it.
And thus the death of another DIY show house.
Seconded, beat me to it. I have fond memories of those houses, including black & white gay bear porn and having to shepherd underage friends into the alley after the only honest police raid of a party I've ever seen in this town. Hell, I think I had a crush on a girl who lived in the basement in one of those houses and rode freight trains.
Sigh, I don't mind progress, and this city needs density, it's just that it always seems to come at the price of what makes the city livable and vibrant in the first place, dig?
@11/12: I loved shows there, such a great little space with nice people running it all. Bummer.
