The sign on the fence says, “NOTICE OF CLEANUP ACTION”
Market Street Landing, LLC is undertaking an environmental cleanup of this property under the Model Toxics Control Act. The cleanup actions may include
Sampling and characterization of contamination Loading/transport/disposal of contaminated materials Collection, treatment, and discharge or disposal of groundwater affected by contamination from site dewatering operations.
We have contacted the construction firm to get details on the cleanup and time frame for development. We will update this post when we receive that information.
Market Street Landing received design approval back in March 2009 and the Land Use Permit was granted for theresidential/retail building in August 2009. The lot has sat empty since the former Denny’s building was razed in June 2008.
The start of this project marks the third development to break ground in Ballard in recent months. Both the Avalon development at the former Sunset Bowl site and the Broadstone Koi broke ground In September.
