Frye Museum picks B.C.-based Westbank to develop two towers on First Hill site

By NAT LEVY
Journal Staff Reporter

Officials with the Frye Art Museum would like to create a built-in audience on First Hill, so they are moving ahead with plans to develop two apartment towers on a parking lot at 707 Terry Ave., just west of the museum.

On Thursday the museum announced that it is exploring development with an entity related to Westbank Projects Corp. of Vancouver B.C. The DJC previously reported on Westbank's involvement with the project, which is set for a design review meeting later this month.

The lower floors of the complex will be designed to complement the museum.



The complex at 707 Terry Ave. could have about 450 apartments, retail and underground parking for 250 vehicles.

In a complete departure from logic and reality, the Stranger advocates that the Frye Museum change its non-profit mission from that of an art museum and into that of building and managing low income housing, one in which I'd imagine their board of directors has absolutely zero experience nor competence. [Not to mention it'd be a breach of fiduciary duty on the directors' part to waste the non-profit's assets for non-mission objectives.]

Yeah, I've been following that and it's a really strange series. That's part 2 (here's part 1), and they closed comments to both of them. Especially strange because:

1. As you mentioned, this would directly go against the endowment that built the Frye. And to be clear - the Frye Art museum is mostly supported by the estate of Charles and Emma Frye, who were very specific as to what they wanted - down to the lighting and the finish of the floor. Using their money as an investment to further the spirit of their gift is one thing. Spending it on a completely separate charitable act is something else.

2. Up until recently the Stranger was strongly supported by the Frye. Or at least for multiple months or years I recall seeing their ads all over the site, and articles written about their installations and events. Even the Stranger's Genius awards were held at the Frye - it was a very close relationship. Looking now, I don't see a trace of them left behind. Was this article in retaliation of them pulling ads? Or did they pull ads in retaliation of this article series? Perhaps the connection was with the Frye's Director Jo-Anne Danzker, who is preparing to leave the museum.

3. What an odd argument. I can see wanting those *fat cat developers* to pay for subsidized housing. But small museums that don't even charge admission?

We actually just need them to be finished constructing and moving residents into this project already; and for its (not proposed) twin and other nascent proposals that haven't yet moved a grain of dirt to already be out of the ground.

The writer seems to lack the ability to comprehend that the project is not being developed by the Frye. The Frye sold the property to the developer, for which it received proceeds to add to its endowment assets and via which it is able to support art by low income artists (among others) and free admission to its exhibits by the public.

It truly is strange. Sound Transit and others are spending money on affordable housing via requirements for using their land, which come basically out of the prices they get.

Why doesn't the Stranger adopt its own Advice and build housing? I can't believe anybody reads their blog anymore. Waste of time and electricity

I stopped reading years ago. It's just hipsters and misfits complaining about literally everything. The Stranger, reduced: "Anything fun is like, soooo lame."

Meh. They lost a lot of talented staff, but I still consider the Slog Seattle's only daily newspaper.
