This one is farther than most. I don't mean it's early in the process. This one has fatal flaws from start to finish. Some elements are plausible, but overall it's not plausible.

We're not going to carve out a superblock for an arena.

People generally don't like turning streets into tunnels.

Parks don't get that much use when you have to climb several flights of stairs to get to them, like from SLU or the CBD. Or when you have to walk down a big hill then back up like from Capitol Hill.

It's would be extremely expensive and difficult to build a platform over I-5. This isn't easy to bridge like the convention center site.

I-5 will need a serious retrofit someday, and the Federal DOT wouldn't allow something like this to get in the way.

We don't have a billion dollars or whatever it would take. We're unlikely to get it. I don't see the public voting for that kind of money without a highly-compelling benefit.

To make it plausible you'd have to go nuclear...move the freeway, then redo the coordidor. This could be doable in reality.

If retrofitting I-5 would be a major disruption and cost billions, which seems plausible, I can imagine an alternative with a tunnel similar to 99 going through Capitol Hill and First Hill to provide a bypass. That would allow I-5 to be retrofitted/rebuilt in the existing corridor with less capacity. In that scenario, it could be far less disruptive and expensive to put a park on top of it.

I'm trying to clean up the first page (with help from others). Some things are possibly under construction or even skipping UC and might be completed.
I'm tempted to start ignoring ALL hillside projects claiming to be 7 floors but are actually just 6.5 floors when it's all done. Currently I am tolerating them if they seem to have most of what appears to be the claimed 7th floor. Might move to a 8+ only front page.

City unanimously approves adoption of University District upzone
By Patrick Quinn, KOMO News Published 7:29 am, Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Seattle city leaders unanimously passed a proposal Tuesday to upzone the University District.

The U-District upzone will allow for the construction of high-rise buildings, while requiring developers to contribute to the production of affordable housing in the U-District.

"As that community grows in the future, it will grow affordably," said Seattle mayor Ed Murray during a Tuesday news conference.

The MHA program will generate more than 6,000 affordable homes over a 10-year period, according to a media release.

"Today's passage of the University District Upzone represents a huge step in living our values as a welcoming, sustainable, and inclusive city," said councilmember Rob Johnson.

But critics are concerned about its execution, saying upzoning the district hurts more than it helps.
"The mayor's plan is going to replace only a fraction of what we're going to lose," said John Fox of the Seattle Displacement Coalition. "This is a flimsy excuse for destroying the character of our community."

The zoning changes would extend from I-5 to 15th Avenue and from Ravenna Boulevard down to Portage Bay.

The upzoning comes in conjunction with the arrival of the U-District light rail, scheduled to open in 2021.

Mithun designs The Foundry for Holland

By BRIAN MILLER
Journal staff reporter

Holland Partner Group will have its second and likely final design review meeting Thursday for The Foundry, at 4754 Fauntleroy Way S.W.

Last August, the design review board recommended proceeding to a master use permit application with minor changes.

Mithun is designing the seven-story building, which will have 118 apartments, including 10 live-work units facing the street. Underground parking for 103 vehicles will be on three levels, accessed from an alley to the east. Two small roof decks are planned.

Total project size, including the parking, is about 127,000 square feet.



The Foundry will have 118 apartments, including 10 live-work units facing the street.

Progress: The start of this one was delayed for a bit.

On the Block: Equinox has plans for SLU and Ballard, too

Developer Brian Regan and his Equinox Properties are hoping to break ground in December on an eight-story retail and office building called 9th Space at 308 Ninth Ave. N., in South Lake Union.

9th Space would continue the galactic theme of Regan's Saturn Building in Fremont and other projects. Equinox has filed for a master use permit, though Regan says a final design review meeting set for early May has been postponed.

The 7,181-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a one-story commercial building. Equinox plans to build about 46,000 square feet of office space above 1,700 square feet of ground-floor retail. Skidmore Janette is the architect.

Regan says he'll start 9th Space without a tenant, and is prepared to accommodate businesses large or small. “Theoretically, one tenant could take the entire 50,000 square feet. Or a single tenant could rent 200 square feet.”

820 John tower team adds to their SLU site
By JOURNAL STAFF

A site at 215 Ninth Ave. N. in South Lake Union has sold for $5.1 million, according to King County records.

The seller was Ninth Avenue Associates LLC, which is an entity of Vashon Island real-estate investor John Goodfellow, who acquired the site in 1997 for $750,000. The 7,200-square-foot property is mostly used for parking now.

The buyer was 9th & John LLC, which is associated with Billy Pettit of Pillar Properties and Rich Reel. They are planning a 28-story apartment tower at 820 John St.

Last month Reel told the DJC that they had Goodfellow's parcel under contract. Reel was previously planning a tower with 160 units on a 14,000-square-foot site he already owned, but he said the floorplate would have been too small and inefficient.
