Amazing day again today, so I ran around Cap & First Hills to snap some shots of the other projects in the works. I would like to have had my real camera with me, but I did the best I could with the iPhone:
Jan 5, 2012
514 East Pine
- site of the former People's Parking Lot that served as a place holder after they razed the block pre-housing-meltdown, much to the neighborhood's dimsay
Pine St, facing West
Looking East, back up Pine st
Bellevue Terrace, 1623 Bellevue Ave
On Bellevue Ave, facing NW. You can see the dilapidated homeless squatter refuge directly to the left of this development that has yet to be torn down. There is a proposal(6-7 stories again) for this plot, but I haven't heard any news lately.
Another view of the lovely crack den.
No time to crop- deal with it!
8th & Seneca
- This is the plot for the lovely project render posted the other day. The activity looks unchanged so far, but I'm not usually afoot in this area.
This crumbled half-of-a-facade has been been in place here since I moved here 2.5 years ago. From what I hear, it was torn down by the same developer that is now proposing the taller single tower.
The plot is really kind of extreme, actually. The grade is very steep leading towards a drop off into the area that passes under 8th and into the convention center / I-5 conglomeration.
