I'll say it again...this is how you build a real city.
It's a good thing. Every single one is needed to get out of the hole that was created during the Mayor Nickels condo-conversion/low-apartment construction era.

That used to be the dead zone of the U District. And now the parking lot is for sale (finally!!!!!!) and the far left has a highrise residential plan. That area is sooo much better than it was, but it might be better still in four years, which coincides with the train arriving.

Also it's a nice view of the area around future Roosevelt Station in the distance.

Middle left on the block at the center of the photo. This was in the DJC in the summer, as the idea changed from a midrise to a highrise after the upzone. They called it 4512 11th Ave NE, and said it was 340 units and potentially up to 320'.

You're correct! Never heard of it and doesn't show in Shaping Seattle or Seattle in Progress. It must be replacing the 4510 11th Ave project on the first page of this thread which is a sweet design itself for lowrise/midrise.

Journal staff reporter
http://www.djc.com/news/search.html?...560&query=4512



A new Paul Pong-related LLC is proposing a residential high-rise with 340 units on a midblock site in the University District that could be the tallest tower built in the neighborhood in four decades.

And found an article about a different site as well.

Shaping Seattle seems to be behind a lot of bad or missing information.

Ballard

December 1, 2017
Attollo Development plans to build a 55-unit condo complex in Ballard

Sightline Institute estimates that only about 500 new condo units will come on the market in Seattle in 2018-2019 — and 389 of them will be in the Nexus high rise.
By BRIAN MILLER
Journal staff reporter
http://www.djc.com/news/re/12106501.html

Few new condominiums are being built in Seattle, and they tend to be high-rise, glass-and-concrete buildings with luxury price points, such as Civic Square, Nexus, Luma, Gridiron and Insignia.


Rendering by David Vandervort Architects [enlarge]
Units in the eight-story building would range from about 516 to 1,020 square feet, mostly one-bedrooms.

I'm not sure how long this sign has been up, but it seems like a good omen for the planned towers here...

Interbay stuff.

I guess it's an indicator of just how scarce land for larger projects is in the city that these-sized residential projects have come to Interbay. Even in this isolated area, all residents have to do to go food shopping is walk across the street to the QFC. Also across the street from the Axle to the north is this semi-industrial/wharehouse scene:



And of course there is always the busy (and noisy) Interbay rail yard close by.

The Crane, which mimics the industrial look:






And the Axle:

Mercy Housing updates Rainier Valley units
By JOURNAL STAFF

Mercy Housing will meet with a Seattle design-review tonight to show updated plans for an eight-story apartment building slated for a site by the Mount Baker light rail station.

The 95-unit project would be built on a 17,900-square-foot site at 2780 S. Hanford St. The property is bounded by Hanford, Rainier Avenue South and Martin Luther King Jr. Way South.

Those are both rented entirely to Google, totaling about 600,000 sf. It'll bring them to over 1,000,000 sf of local offices. The blocks each have a residential component on one corner as shown.
