Sweet. That was/is a huge hole! It probably looked worse because it was on a hill too. What exactly will it be?

I think QFC is still planning to open a new store there even there one in Wallingford is expanding. I saw QFC sign on that site so it is seen like they are still going to open a new store there anyway.

I don't know if that is true but my understanding that QFC already own this property and might still planning to open a new store there.

It will be five stories apartment building with retail spaces (possible new QFC store).

I haven't see any rendering of this new building yet. Anyone have the rendering for this building?

Wow that looks really nice! And it looks like they definitely are planning for a QFC there, given the extra tall retail on the ground floor. I hope more buildings like that will develop along Stone Way! (And, actually, everywhere)

For what it's worth, I think this article: http://smarterneighbors.com/2008/02/...grocery-store/ is why I thought the QFC wasn't going in.

And yeah, that looks nicer than the average 4-story mixed use building. That said, it doesn't look to me like there's loading space for a full-service grocery store. I'd love to be wrong, of course.

Crazy, what sort of equipment was there?

I only ask because theres another big empty lot across the street from my apartment that has plans for development that have been stalled because of the economy. And several times I have seen work crews come and go with drilling equipment. My immediate reaction was always "oh yay! they're finally starting work!" only to be disappointed to see that it was gone the next day (I'm guessing it was just soil testing).

In searching for any news of the imminent start of this project, I stumbled on this article about home owners near by, who's gardens are starting to collapse:

http://www.qanrg.org/stonewayqfc.html

Are we sure they aren't just shoring up the wall?

Not knowing anything about the project status, I think you're probably right about shoring the wall.

That is very disappointing!!! I was very excited to have new QFC near my home so I don't have to make some trips to QFC in Wallingford or Fred Meyers in Ballard. I like PCC but they don't have everything what I need and some of their grocies are little pricy.

Last time I saw, they were digging the hole (three of them), and around a dozen of construction workers, and some supplies (I don't know what they are since they are wrapped). I don't know if they're just shoring the wall. I never see anything to shore up the wall that required big digging before. I remember last December (or November?) it was announced on Seattle Times that construction supposed to start last December but nothing happened until now. We have to wait and see if Stoneway Village really going to get built. I will keep my eye on that site and keep you guys updated.

BoulderGrad, it is looking like you're right about shoring up the wall. I just saw that site and they are working on the walls and did some digging. I hope once they fix the wall and start build Stoneway Village.

The demo equipment is gone from the 3rd & Battery site. Didn't see anything that indicated construction would be starting soon.

I looked at the DPD site and didn't see any proposals for use as a parking lot.

^West Seattle has had some other projects recently break ground. Like the condo complex between PCC and Lafayette Elementary and another town-home development in North Admiral. Along with this news, the new groundbreakings, and the opening of the new QFC/mid rise development shows signs that West Seattle is getting back on track.

It would be interesting to see an overhead map highlighting where all the development is coming in.

Hopefully the 2 stalled projects (Fauntleroy Place and Avalon Apts) get finished, but I suspect neither will restart anytime soon.

I saw two or three new land action signs went up along Dexter Ave today. I am not sure when it went up but anyone familiar with these new projects planned for Dexter?

Yes but I just recognized a several new ones along Dexter but I don't know how long it been there but obvious new signs. It was posted on streetlights not on fence or ground. One near Dexter Apartment, I didn't pay attention which intersection two new signs are at. I will get closer look to them next time I on Dexter.
