Development Update?

In traveling around the neighborhood, I’m seeing some projects emerge that I don’t have any info about.

Does anybody know what’s going in at 20th and Union (between Katy’s and 2020)?

Does anybody know if there are plans for a business at 30th and Cherry (next to the bodega)?

Speaking of the bodega, i walked by there the other day and they were cookin’ up something interesting. Has anybody ever eaten there? What’s that guy go going on in the back?

  1. Four commercial condos are going up in the previously vacant lot on the north side of Union. They’re 1 1/2 stories, or a first floor and a loft layout. They’ll be for sale individually, although I bet the developer would also be delighted to sell them all together.

    BTW, Carole’s Essentials, an ethnic gift and card shop, has reopened at 2008 E Union Th-Sat 2-6pm. Carole used to be where the Peacock Subs are now south of the PO.

  2. There was supposed to be a Topolino’s Pizza opening there last year, but I heard from the owner that the building was so contaminated (former dry-cleaners) that they were having a very hard time with it. Now the Topolino’s on Capitol Hill has closed or moved, so I can’t get any more information, *or* good NY-style pizza.

  3. The developer says no live, just work. It would be up to the buyer to get an occupancy permit to live there. I have no idea how easy/difficult that might be.

  4. I like how the pb elemental site gives the location as Ballard. I know some people are wary of using the CD name, but srsly? I know, I know, it’s just a typo. Ha.

  5. Has anyone heard anything about this place? We would love to see it turn into something useful (preferrably food/restaurant). It must have contamination issues too.

  6. Dry cleaners are notoriously hard to redevelop due to the almost certain presence of toxic chemicals that are left on the property. I believe this one is in a similar situation.

  7. Does anyone else find the proximity to the house next door scary. this is one ugly project so far.
