The four horsemen of the Urban Visions apocalypse

Horseman Number 1: Actually fencing off a property they have a proposal for
Horseman Number 2: Actually start digging at said site
Horseman Number 3: Hitting the bottom of the pit
Horseman Number 4: First. Concrete. Pour.....

So are they just excavating early Seattle fill dirt? Or will it be silt and other tidal flat sediment?

That was on a little peninsula in 1875 per this. But there's definitely some fill and old building/piling remnants, which can translate to contamination.

Runoff from Occidental park is enough to warrant EPA Superfund site.

Urban Visions has actually started digging. Didn't believe it until I saw it.

This project and North Lot will be great additions to this area when alls said and done; something to break up the monotony of brick masonry here and there.

Hmm, in my mind, old brick is never monotonous. There is too much natural variation of color and style for me to ever get bored walking around that area.
