Townhomes next to Bartells approved

August 28th, 2008 · 33 Comments

Here are the renderings of the ten townhomes that have now been conditionally approved by the city for the area next to Bartells at the junction of 32nd Ave West and Clise Place West. This southern edge of The Village is quickly turning into townhome heaven with 15 townhomes almost complete across the street. 

There are lots of trees on this site, some of them up to 60” in diameter. Many have expressed concern that the trees would be taken down for this project.  In the written approval the city claims that most of the ‘substantial’ trees, including four of the five existing Giant Sequoias will be retained. The design concentrates development into a tight cluster and they also plan additional street trees for privacy. 

We reported a few weeks ago that the permit sign posted at this project has been defaced by someone who was unhappy with the project.

    I am really sad to see our neighborhood ripped up and replaced by these hideous townhomes. They are ruining Seattle, and now Magnolia.

    Yea. We should preserve all those 60’s 70’s 80’s and 90’s architecture as they are the most beautiful architecture ever. We should stop building everything now -never again shall we build a building. I’m in total agreement.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    I must say, as substantially as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a wonderful grasp to the topic matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from much more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so significantly. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your very own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    The core of your writing while appearing agreeable at first, did not work well with me after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you actually managed to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I however have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and you might do well to fill in all those breaks. When you can accomplish that, I would certainly end up being impressed.
