A small building on the corner of 32nd Ave NW and NW 65th St. disappeared this week, just down from the shops in Sunset Hill.
“Well that’s gone,” Dean Souza writes on Facebook.
The building has been there many years
most of the last year, but it was torn down to make way for four live-work units and two town homes, according to this application posted on the the Seattle Services Portal a year ago.
While this type of news can be hard to stomach for a lot of Ballardites, Zach Gaul welcomes the change. “It was an almost windowless storage building on a busy corner. Amazing this thing survived for as long as it did,” Gaul writes on Facebook. “Nothing wrong with progress and density in certain places.”
No word from the Department of Construction and Inspections on when construction will start; we’ll keep you updated.
(Thanks Dean for posting the photo to the My Ballard Facebook Group!)
Correction: Thanks 61stmama for pointing out an error in the story: the building that was demolished has been there for several years.
