Please advise where the QFC store on Beacon Hill is located. Living on the hill for 25+ years, the nearest QFC I know is in Rainier Valley, on Rainier Ave.

"former State Representative Brady Piñero Walkinshaw" When did he resign his seat in the house? Last I heard, he was still a state representative.

Am sure glad anonymous commenters like d.p. are not designing our city for us.
Aug 11 RDPence commented on Solutions to Seattle’s Growing Housing Crisis: Part Four.
Still no solution for the middle class -- families that are too "rich" for any subsidized housing, but not rich enough to buy or rent any of the market-rate housing now being built. Their only option is moving to the suburbs.

A little perspective. Forty years ago, I got my first "real" job, one with a 4-digit monthly paycheck. I rented a nice 1-bedroom apartment on Harvard Ave. between Roy and Mercer. My rent was exactly 1/7th of my monthly gross income. Any my situation was typical, not anomalous.

Wow. Old houses should be demolished when they "reach the end of their useful life." Same argument used to demolish every old landmark that gets in some developers way. Those old houses can be rehabbed at far less cost than demo and new construction. And any building that is adequately maintained has a "useful life" measured in centuries.

Where's the model that houses folks who are too "rich" for the mayor's affordable (subsidized) housing but not rich enough for market-rate housing being built today. People we used to call the middle class? To the 'burbs with them?

@1 Yes, indeed; let's keep demolishing all those old $400K-$500K SF houses from the last century and replace them with $700K-$800K townhomes. That's lowering the price of housing…right…?

It would've been better to come up with the improved more-inclusive system *before* dis-empowering the current district councils.
Aug 6 RDPence commented on This Week on the Blabbermouth Podcast: Seattle Socialist Tries to Defend Support for Jill Stein.
Sawant has said before that she wants to destroy the Democratic Party, so nobody should be surprised by her shift to Stein. To her that's more important than defeating Donald Trump.
