This was posted in an article about a software company expanding in Fremont, but it could apply to other areas in the city including Beacon Hill and Rainier Valley."Fremont, Ballard and Wallingford are attracting companies and employees because of plentiful outdoor spaces, restaurants and proximity to downtown."
I see the fence every morning on my way to work. I didn't know what was going up there. Thank you!Big news for the full block near Rainer and I-90 just behind the O Boy Oberto place. Maybe old news but I only noticed the sign when driving around this morning.
Hamlin Robinson school has bought the block and is building a new 3 story school since Seattle Schools have told them to leave TT Minor by fall 2016 according to http://hamlinrobinson.org/newhome
Nice Range Rover in the rendering.
I just realized there's the Range Rover in that rendering and a Tesla Model S. Geesh! No wonder: http://youtu.be/tksluFy4P4sI see the fence every morning on my way to work. I didn't know what was going up there. Thank you!
Seattle-based rapper Draze delivers a dope music video and track dedicated to highlighting the effects of gentrification on Seattle’s Central area and south end communities. Throughout the video, the rapper takes his fans on a journey through the rapidly changing urban areas of Seattle.
Wow, when he sees me and my girlfriend walking our dogs he probably cringes. I live pretty much in the areas he's rapping about. I also lived in Brooklyn.
I think there's nothing wrong with feeling nostalgic, and feeling a personal loss when the things you like and are used to change. There are plenty of Jews who feel that way about areas of the Bronx where they grew up, or ethnic Italians in other parts of New York, etc.Wow, when he sees me and my girlfriend walking our dogs he probably cringes. I live pretty much in the areas he's rapping about. I also lived in Brooklyn.
I can't afford to rent a house in the north end and this is closer to work. Am I still bad a guy Draze?
Is it racist when a white community makes a song about black people moving in??? I played basketball with a high school kid 2 hours ago at the park nearby. He asked if he could join me because he didn't have a ball and I said yes, and this is not the first time this has happened. (also one of the reasons I love basketball, it's easy to share the sport). He asked me if I was racist before we started playing. I laughed and pointed at the picture of a black man on my t shirt lol.
