There goes the neighborhood

There goes the neighborhood. No. Literally. There goes the neighborhood.

The story is that 12 homeowners with adjoining property lines got together and put their properties up for sale as a unit, marketing to developers.

N 147th and some houses on 1st NE
will be demolished for a multi family development

The neighborhood is west of I-5, in the 14500 block of NE 1st Ave and on NE 147th between 1st Ave NE and Corliss Ave N.

Steve Robinson has been keeping his eye on the project.

I first saw fencing going up along 1st NE, and then saw the distinctive orange fence on the whole south side of 147th between 1st NE and N Corliss. 
Then the houses started coming down.

Reportedly, the deal with the first developer fell through, but a second developer picked up the project.

The city of Shoreline is in discussion with Sound Transit about building a foot bridge across I-5 to reach the Shoreline South transit station at NE 147th. 

At this point, we don't have any information about what will be built on the site. The properties are in the 145th rezone, MUR 45 (mixed use residential, 45' height restriction).

No comment here as to the fate of the large trees on the lots. They should be saved and built around. They provide many benefits to health, both prysical and mental

if you own property nearby this is a good thing for you. if you are buying nearby i guess its not. old houses come down, new ones go up. that's life. and sadly trees not only dont live forever, you cant build around them. are we worried about all the trees that used to be in downtown seattle? we live in a CITY where trees arent as abundant as in the forest...
