Ex-Hollywood (etc.) demolition, updated view

The former video store and the ex-we-can’t-even-remember-WHAT-it-was-before to the west are now both rubble, barely a week after demolition work began. This view looks west from 41st (Jefferson Square sign off to the left):

    Off topic, but some of the bigger construction jobs will have a webcam on during construction. I particularly enjoyed watching the WAMU-SAM construction – the site is still up.

    The anonymous building was Gene Fieldler Chevrolet in the 1950s and 1960s.

    That’s one beaut of a building. One ? are those Falcons still using WAMU building as a nesting site?

    It’s tough to imagine a QFC and on-site parking on this space!

    I’m pretty sure it was a daycare or pre-school that was next to Hollywood Video.

    The young female from the Washington Mutual nest – the only survivor of the two young – was last reported in downtown Seattle in August. Some juveniles continue to “visit” their parents on into the fall, probably in hopes of getting an easy meal from the adults. However, it can be very difficult to locate one juvenile in the forest of downtown buildings, so the absence of sightings after August may not be significant.
    As far as observers can tell, the unbanded adults at this skyscraper site are still the same pair that first nested there last year. They have been seen regularly on the nest ledge and other parts of their home “cliff” throughout the fall and winter. Activity around the nest ledge has increased steadily over the last month.

    The pictures and article about Gene Fiedler are interesting — What a difference between Huling Bros and Gene Fiedler’s.
