Designing the ‘gateway to Ballard’

A couple weeks ago, we posted the possible design of the new development going into 15th and Market, the plot of land that some refer to as the “gateway to Ballard.” Some readers said the generic-looking development doesn’t reflect the uniqueness of Ballard. While I was in Fremont this weekend, I took a photo of that neighborhood’s “gateway” — a relatively new development that was controversial when it was built, but has a little Fremont flair.

Does it look like Fremont? Could the same be done in Ballard? Does it matter?
