To be fair, it's lot is waaay too small to have a twin.

Ugh...archeology strikes again! http://web6.seattle.gov/dpd/eplan/Ge...%202%2F16%2F17

Apparently being within 2,600 feet of a precontact kettle is enough to bog down another project with delays

I appreciate the concern for antiquity, but why are the Muckleshoot and Duwamish tribes stakeholders in this particular situation? These tribes' nation borders are very far away and would they submit themselves to land regulations on their nation from the outside too?

It's ridiculous how something that is old now has value just because its old. Maybe the archaeologists should visit our landfills if an item being old meant it was significant. I bet if they dig several hundred feet down in a landfill they could find a pot or spoon from the turn of the 20th century--eureka! Save the public and future homeowners money and dig in a landfill instead for your precious trinkets.

I wonder if there has been little money in searching for, finding and owning ancient artifacts? It isn't a surprise that ancient people lived in the area. Surely those with money would have been first and most aggressive to cash in on money-making in that area. This stuff is also being found at relatively shallow depths.

It's about understanding history more than "value" per se.

Quite a few projects around town have arrangements in place for an archeological consultant to do a report similar to what they're requesting and to be on call in case anything is unearthed during excavation. This isn't too extraordinary, it's just one of the many things that leads to development being expensive.

A kettle? Sounds like cowboys more than Indians, there any beans left in it?

Get ready for an ancient package of the old REI hiking staple, freeze-dried chili-mac. .

I should note that the parking lines are painted in yellow which usually seems to be for utility or other service vehicles, I think.

All those businesses have long been closed. I can't imagine that any of them are going to start up again.

I was looking at the tight buns. Was there something else I was supposed to pay attention to?

I'm not sure if this sign was up before, but it does not seem like good news.

Funny.

Isn't this project much further along than the Stewart/Denny apartment project? That parking lot is now fenced off from use.
