West Seattle scene: Production crew instead of a construction crew

ORIGINAL REPORT, 1:14 PM: When we noticed the tower-crane base in place at 40th/Edmunds, and then “no parking” signs for today, we thought maybe the crane was arriving.

Then, Andy sent a note wondering what a video/photography type of crew was doing at the site. We went over to find out.

It’s a shoot for Brooks Running, we learned on-site from Erika of Blondehouse Production. And they’ll be shooting in West Seattle again on Tuesday, just a few blocks from today’s shoot, over by food truck Beloved Mexico and West Seattle Produce – so if you’ve seen the “no parking” signs on the east side of Fauntleroy Way SW south of SW Alaska, now you know what they’re for.

ADDED 8:41 PM: Maris, who lives near the construction site, took this photo during the actual shoot:

If you’ve lost track of the project on that site, by the way, it’s 4745 40th SW, 135 apartments plus some ground-floor live-work units and a relatively small amount of retail. The site next door (south of the bank) is owned by Seattle Parks but in the shorter run will be temporary home soon to Seattle Fire Station 32 during the rebuild on its permanent site at 37th/Alaska.

    re: the temporary home for Fire Station 32: are they constructing a building to house the station or how does that work?

      Kyle – temporary structures, which was the case when Station 36 was temporarily housed on a site off Harbor Avenue (until its upgrade was recently concluded).

Sorry, comment time is over.
