    This seems like sensible development–there’s already a large building on the site so it won’t significantly alter the neighborhood, streetside awnings are provided where there are currently none, no one’s immediate view is altered (unless the neighbor’s by the alley feel that the roof is a nice view), and it’s not a 5–7 story monstrosity.  I realize my view of what a sensible development is is entirely subjective, but I actually think it will look nicer than what is there.  Can’t say that of most the West Seattle developments.

Sorry, comment time is over.
