I didn't think they had started to drill in the U District yet (seems like they are way behind though) I did notice they moved some townhouses in the Roosevelt District and closed down the old QFC near Roosevelt HS.

This project can't get finished soon enough.

This is for a 'mixed-use' building, not light rail. As is the other hole on the other side of the alley. I like how the alley is still standing there, 4 stories tall.

Thank you so much @2, otherwise I would not have recognized that it was the University District in Seattle. It would have courteous to readers for Grant to have noted its location, if not to at least meet at least one of the five Ws of journalism.

Nice for a developer to add underground parking.

Yes dear, you wouldn't be able to tell it was the University District, other than the neighborhood's two landmark buildings (The old Safeco/new UW tower and whatever they're calling the Meany these days) being right there in the picture.

No wonder you vote Republican.....

@4: Oh for fuck's sake, you ignorant twat. You can't recognise the old Safeco building and the hotel, the two tallest buildings in the U-district?

Seriously??

You mean UW Tower.

Thanks for playing.

In the year 2525 is from a song I used to play on college radio at SFU up in Burnaby, BC. You know, back when John Cougar Melloncamp was just starting to change his name.

To be pedantic (I work in the UW Tower, so I'm allowed), it's the Deca Hotel now, and the apartment tower at 47th and 9th is taller than the Deca.

The public CAN enter the hole right now, just not legally or safely.

Ya know what hipsters? (@6, @7) Shut up. That's my bus stop and I didn't recognize which hole in the ground it was.

And @4, location IS one of the 5 Ws. Passive aggression is a tool of the left and you carry it off quite poorly.

Oh now troll, don't be bitter. Just turn that frown upside down. I'm sure you have a lovely smile.

@4 So you're bitchy and ignorant? Attractive.

@11 I recognized it and it isn't my bus stop. More observation and less loud-mouthed dumb-shittery please.

@13, @7, @6: And what our world-wide Sloggers who don't know Seattle? It's truly amazing that my asking for a reporter to note the location (the "Where" in the 5 Ws) and the ruffled feathers it invokes is a testament that Seattle is infested with the world's most arrogant people.

Yes, gay gal for Romania, we are truly dreadful individuals. I don't know why you put up with us. Thank God for the troll, and for scolds like you. You keep it real, as the kids say.

@14, you make the mistake of applying a principle of journalism to a newspaper whose primary purpose is to provide people with puzzles which, when solved, prove one's hipness. Now if you'll excuse me I'm still working on what the fuck all the pictures of shopping carts are supposed to mean.

@16 you're just upset you couldn't get more than 250 at the Whack a Hipster game at Bumbershoot.
