UpGarden transformed the roof with shared spaces, a communal garden and whimsical elements like an Airstream trailer that serves as a tool shed.

The garden on top of a three-story garage near Seattle Center won this year's top award from the Washington Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects.

Rezone could bring big changes to Mount Baker
By NAT LEVY
Real Estate Reporter
http://www.djc.com/news/re/12064784.html

When the Mount Baker light rail station opened in 2009, there was a lot of talk about rezoning the area around it. After years of planning and deliberating, stopping and starting, the city seems to be getting close to the finish line.

On May 1, the City Council's Planning, Land Use and Sustainability Committee will hold a public meeting to air the proposals and get public comments.

Coming of light rail is already driving real estate investments in Seattle

A landmark Seattle apartment building across the street from the University District's future light rail station traded hands Tuesday for $13 million.

Gerry Pigotti of Gibraltar/Persus Capital Partners in Seattle said the proximity of University Manor Apartments to the station played a "huge role" in his decision to buy the property. The U District Station is scheduled to open in 2021, and when it does, riders will be able to get to downtown Seattle in eight minutes. Pigotti said this will allow University Manor to charge rents closer to those of downtown properties.

Something heading toward completion on Rainier Avenue next to the Mt. Baker station.

Also on Rainier Ave. I hate this project, multi-level but I think it's a storage company project. Residential buildings in background the redeeming element.

Developers see big opportunity near tracks
Marc Stiles
Staff Writer- Puget Sound Business Journal
http://www.bizjournals.com/seattle/p...ar-tracks.html

Fourteen developers and nonprofits want to build apartments on top of and around the future light-rail station on Seattle’s Capitol Hill.

A Seattle investor said light rail coming to the University District played “a huge role” in his $13 million purchase of an old apartment building across the street from the station.



A large site at the Roosevelt Station in North Seattle will be available for development after the station’s scheduled opening in 2021. Roosevelt Station is one of 26 new stations that could become hubs for transit-oriented apartment development.

I think it won't be too difficult for the development to improve the neighborhood. It will be greener than Belltown and hopefully can help show people that we can build more density without it being a sea of solid concrete.

Can't wait for the streetcar to open. Hopefully it's still on for this year.

Rode the "E" rapid ride bus this past Sunday. This is the same route of the old 358 that went up Aurora. It runs every 15 minutes on Sunday about ever 12 minutes on Saturday. This is probably a big improvement for the people living north in this area. The weekday schedule is very good, like every 5 - 10 minutes.

Now we need a bus-only lane and light priority.

I love those "Identity" buildings. They're about 100 units each with maybe 4 parking spaces, and if I recall units average around 300 sf. It's exactly the sort of housing option that should be available for people who want something new at moderate cost (and eventually something cheaper still as it ages). They're somewhere between true "micros" and small studios.

$43 million deal to move UW labs for light-rail line


Under terms of a new agreement, Sound Transit would pay the University of Washington $43 million to mitigate the effects of light rail running in a tunnel through campus.

By Katherine Long

Seattle Times higher-education reporter


Sound Transit would pay the University of Washington $43 million to move some college labs to a new lab space, across campus and away from an underground light-rail tunnel, under a new deal being considered by both agencies this month.

The concern: That construction and operation of Sound Transit’s Northgate Link extension will cause electromagnetic interference in four UW buildings, where delicate instruments such as electron microscopes are used in research.

That concern first arose many years ago, when Sound Transit began mapping an underground route through the UW campus. In 2007, the UW and Sound Transit agreed the transit agency would pay the university to mitigate the possible effects of electromagnetic interference.

The amended agreement includes the price of mitigation and puts an upper limit on the level of vibration and electromagnetic interference that’s acceptable. If the agreement is approved, the university plans to use the money to nearly double the size of its Molecular Engineering & Sciences building, which opened in October 2012 just south of Gerberding Hall.

The UW Board of Regents will vote on the agreement during a meeting Thursday, and Sound Transit’s board will vote on it in two weeks.

The $43 million in mitigation was about what transit-agency officials expected to pay, said Sound Transit spokesman Bruce Gray.

“Given the importance of what goes on in the campus, and in these labs, we don’t feel like it’s out of line,” he said.

The money would come from the $1.8 billion budget for the first section of the line, running from Capitol Hill to Husky Stadium.

Tunnel boring will launch soon at Northgate for the section between the stadium and Northgate, with two machines boring south to the stadium, arriving in early- to mid-2016, Gray said.

He said the segment that goes through the University District will be about 80 feet below ground, and will go still deeper — about 140 feet below ground — as it travels across campus.

At first, the university was concerned primarily with vibrations, but Sound Transit “has done a wonderful job of finding the latest technology” to reduce ground vibrations, said Richard Chapman, the UW’s associate vice president for capital projects.

That technology includes train tracks built on slabs of concrete that sit on big rubber doughnuts at the bottom of the tunnel, a kind of track known as a floating-slab track.

Electromagnetic interference, however, remained a concern.

Four buildings on campus, adjacent to the train line, house a variety of sensitive equipment, including electron microscopes, which are “really, really, really high resolution — so when the trains come by, they generate a magnetic field, and that distorts the imaging, and you get bad results,” Chapman said.

The buildings that could be affected are Wilcox Hall, Roberts Hall, Mechanical Engineering Building and the Engineering Annex, all on the southeast side of campus.

Research and related activities that take place in those buildings would be moved into a newly constructed addition to the Molecular Engineering building. The building was designed from the beginning to house sensitive instruments and has an unusually large foundation to block vibrations and electromagnetic interference, Chapman said.

The money would be used to build a 78,000-square-foot addition to Molecular Engineering, roughly doubling its size. The project is estimated to cost $53 million, with most of the rest of the money coming from university funding.

The UW isn’t the only research university that has had to deal with interference from light rail.

A similar issue arose at the University of Minnesota, where university officials feared that an aboveground light-rail line being built through the Minneapolis campus could interfere with delicate instrumentation.

The university had to move several labs, including one with a nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, said Leslie Krueger, chief of staff for university services. The city’s transit agency also built a floating-slab track and made power-line adjustments to reduce electromagnetic interference, she said. The line is being tested and is set to open for service in June.

Seattle’s light-rail line will run directly underneath several buildings that won’t be affected by vibrations or electromagnetic interference, including Kane, Savery, Smith, Loew, Husky Union Building, the engineering library and the power plant.

The trains will follow a gently curving path underneath the university, running between the U District Station on Brooklyn Avenue Northeast — between Northeast 45th and Northeast 43rd streets — and the UW Station in front of Husky Stadium on Montlake Boulevard Northeast.

The first phase of the line, which will connect Capitol Hill to the UW Station at Husky Stadium, is expected to open for service in 2016.

Mixed-Use Brick Building Adding 20 Residences To Queen Anne

Tuesday, May 6, 2014, by Sean Keeley



The Queen Anne spot formerly home to Rice'n Spice Thai restaurant will soon be home to a mixed-use building if the proposed structure is approved. Plans call for a mixed-use building at 101 John St. with one floor of commercial space (2,175 sq. ft.) below and five floors of residential units above. The 20 residential spaces will be split between fifteen 1-BRs and five 2-BRs. The brick building fits with the neighboring Fionia Apartments, which will be separated by a courtyard with a vegetation wall and bike stalls. Kilburn Architects bring their plans before the design review board on May 7 for recommendations.

That subway train is taking too long for my taste.

Nice addition to Queen Anne. So glad the days of surface parking lots and underused sites in that area are ending.

Captiol Hill Link Station seems to be built up to the surface. Saw some structural parts recently rising above ground. Here's a web cam shot from today 5/9/14.

No kidding. I was surprised when I was on Capitol Hill last week and the station on Broadway was just breaking the surface.....as your photo points out. The people who live in that area must be going nuts at this point.

Finish the damn thing already..........'cause I want to ride it.
