Does anyone remember what is going in at the NE corner of Henn and 35th? I think it was to be a small commercial building? Maybe it is something else now? Either way, the old (in very poor shape) house is now gone. This is actually on my block...but I don't know if it is a house or commercial going in.

In addition to FMP's comments re: sentimentality (which I almost 100% agree with), I think there's room for people to be sentimental but maybe not about the same things you are. I have fond memories/nostalgia/sentiment for certain times in my life, like living with 10 close friends in a college house and all the wacky shit that happened (RIP, 701 15th Ave SE), or what my first-born kid was like when he first started to walk and talk (and now at 3 he feels like a straight-up kid). I even have a weird sentimentality for my first house in Lakeville with a third acre yard (that I mostly hated) because there were some good times in it (renting rooms out to 3 friends, meeting my now-wife, planning our wedding there, getting our first and then second dog, etc). Anyway it's possible to be a not-robot while still maybe not having the same sentimental feeling toward a business or even a building in your neighborhood that other people do. And then even if/when you do, it's possible to still be a booster for change because while I'm sad to see the comic shop go (as a CARAG resident, my kid is just now old enough to walk there with me and pick something out now and again - I'll miss that!) I'm equally/more excited for what the new development will bring.

And I really don't want this to come off as condescending (because I really don't mean it this way), but after my dad had a quadruple bypass (nearly died, made it through) and my wife's dad had a heart attack and passed away when she was 26 - both within 6 months of each other - I kinda took stock of the things that are worth getting very sad (or angry) about in the (hopefully) 80 years or so I'll have on this planet. Most of the "unique" or "cool" things Uptown has or had aren't things I can't live without, and maybe I'm wrong but I can't recall a particular business that was critical to the neighborhood's low-income population going away either. Anyway.

Joe Biden had a nice comment tonight at a keynote at ULI/CNU in Seattle: he suggested it'd be a lot better for democracy to have people question someone's judgement, not motives. He shared an oft-cited lesson learned for him about Jesse Helms, who didn't support broader rights for those with disabilities and how Biden had questioned Helms on his care for those with disabilities only to learn that Helms had adopted a child who had a disability.

I think that applies to the YIMBY movement as well. You can be for development in general but also be sad and recognize that others have valid concerns about the change in their community, issues of displacement, etc.

A 6 story, 71 unit apartment building is being proposed for the current site of two houses, 3009-13 Holmes Ave S:

Walked past today and the two houses were gone, this project is underway.

Sad to hear that Bradstreet Crafthouse is closing. I really liked that place. Both food and drinks were great. I'm curious to know what form it will take at the new airport hotel.

More importantly, they'll be redeveloping the property for housing and retail.
Q. What, what? A. In da butt.

Something that butts right against Lowry Hill Meats and the liquor store would be great!

What were the "recent changes to the Lowry Hill strategic development overlay"? Did this area get added to the Pedestrian Overlay?

And there's no possible way that Bradstreet could be a first floor tenant?? :( :( :(

This concept is so heartfelt and touching and amazing, and the density is great. I hope this passes without contention.

This sounds very similar to the Nicollet Square project in Kingfield, which by all accounts has been a great neighbor.

This is a slam dunk. Can we get one in the Wedge?

I hope other developers in the area will be inspired by these folks. This truly is a win-win

Anybody know what's going on in the long empty lots across from Fremont on Lake? Some dumpsters, cars/trucks in those lots yesterday and today. You can also see on the Fremont cam:

Just something for the Art Crawl?
