Four construction cranes are now up in West Seattle, with the arrival today of this one at The Blake, 5020 California SW, south of The Junction, where we last reported on the start of site prep in April. This crane arrives 8 days after the crane went up at Spruce, formerly “The Hole,” and the two projects have some things in common besides the obvious:
PCC did an April Fools day post about two more Green Lake area stores just to have fun with people. One on Duck Island (a nature reserve in the lake where people are not allowed last I knew) and at the 9 hole par 3 golf course at the south end of the lake.PCC seems to have no qualms about putting stores fairly close to each other. The West Seattle store is a mile and a half away. Perhaps they could jump in and take the space? How are the two Greenlake stores doing so close to each other?
Ditto Metropolitan Market.
I watched the West Seattle Blog coverage of this yesterday. From what I can see in building plans in the EDMS these wires are going to be undergrounded. Frankly seems pathetic on someone's part that the lines were still up with the building well into construction. Not even the usual warning rope up near the wires. The final building is fairly tall and would be right next to the wires if not actually conflicting. Between the developer, City Light, SDCI and contractor - workers were put at risk unnecessarily.
page 7 of this pdf expects wires to be undergrounded. Maybe City Light was too busy.
