Wallingford and Fremont Development News and Photos

What scenes of Wallingford do you have?

Is lower Stoneway still part of Wallingford? This view will be full of the Stoneway project now U/C in a year or so. Taken in 2007 I think.

Somehow I had a feeling that your comment contained that exact question.

A - After the tantrum that you guys threw and exodus from SSP, your SSC was looking a little dull and feeling a little stale
B - Board with SSP
C - I'll leave as soon as I'm told/ignored/board.
D - A and B but not C

:P

It was hardly a tantrum. There just wasn't much Seattle discussion there anymore, so I moved on. That silly "local" format seems to have been final blow, though.

Neither of the buildings in this picture is a masterpiece, but I love how they bookend 45th at Stone Way. It'll be a long time before Wallingford feels urban (if ever), but this kind of infill (replacing a decrepit 1-story office building and a McDonalds, if I recall correctly) is a good thing for the neighborhood, IMHO -- densifying it a little without leading to NIMBY revolt. And providing riders for the Ballard-UW rapid transit that'll come about in oh, say, 2050.

Great pictures, MSeattle! I live really close to Stoneway. East of Stoneway is Wallingford neighborhood and west of Stoneway is Fremont neighborhood.

Crazy, thanks for the info. So Wallingford goes all the way down to the lake.

Neighborhood boundaries are subjective. I'd say Aurora is a a better boundary between Wallingford and Fremont in the 45th corridor. Close to the Lake, Stone Way is a good boundary.

I just got an email from Tippr (like Group On or Living Social) and they have a deal at Fremont Brewery that I thought you guys would be interested in. It's $10 for a pint and a filled growler.

Much of Lower Wallingford will likely remain a single-family housing area for many years or unless and until certain areas have more student houses.

Evanston Space Project Coming To Fremont

We noted last week that the Rocket Apartments were on their way out and something new would be replacing them. Originally, owner Brian Regan has envisioned a hotel in that space but those plans went by the wayside.

Instead, Regan is envisioning the Evanston Space Project, an office/retail space not unlike Regan’s current Fremont building, the Fremont Space Building.

This new building will include 121 office spaces, five retail spots and over 100 parking spaces in an underground garage.

Regan is still working on financing to make the building happen, but has the building permits ready to go once he’s set. As such, there is no timetable for the project.

Any progress on the Stone Way pit? That was to have finally restarted recently, yes?

Yep, it's very busy. A crane has been up for probably about a month now!

From the design docs, the building is quite hideous. The worst mishmash of the 'village evolving over time' guideline. But still better than a gaping hole in the ground.

That was a huge void along Stone Way. Happy that it's in the process of being built. We can only be confident when it's completed and occupied by residents and business.

I do mourn the pending loss of a great skyline shot from the street.

There's a yellow crane visible from I-5 that appears to be in the Fremont area. Can anyone confirm if it's for this project, called Evanston Space? http://exxelpacific.com/projects/inp...vanston-space#
