Today as I sat at the light at 23rd and Yesler, as I often do, the sunlight bathed the restored houses on the NW corner. From dilapidated dumps to art project to high quality affordable condos, the developers did the neighborhood a huge service. When they were finished (maybe 7 years ago?) I was just hoping they were done right, not just a cosmetic upgrade. So far, they seem to be holding up very well.
This is one of my favorite changes in the neighborhood architecture in the last ten years. What are yours?
