Goodbye, Hollywood

On the east edge of The Junction, developers of the mixed-use project with the QFC didn’t waste much time after booting Hollywood Video. A reader e-mailed us late yesterday that demolition work was racing ahead. What you see behind the backhoe is actually a house behind the ex-store – by late last night, it was just a shell:

    WOW! They do work fast, I just went to Safeway Monday night and didn’t see any work being done. Humm, wonder what happened to my membership?…

    I thought this project was going to be a Whole Foods? Or is there going to be a QFC and a Whole Foods within a block or two of one another (and an existing Safeway)

    Amanda, you will no doubt get a letter in the mail in about 2 years saying you have over due DVD’s .. this happened to me a long time ago with Tower Records, years after I had cancelled my membership. Good times. And yes they do work fast huh!? Look for more traffic problems related to the megablight going in rightcheer. Happy Day :)

    Whole Foods is supposedly going into Fauntleroy Place, which is the Schuck’s/Hancock property to the south of the Bowling Alley. Still in Design Review phase, probably a while before the wrecking ball hits.

    Will be interesting to see how the “West Seattle Grocery Store War” plays out.

    A QFC……funny. Well I suppose all those future Condo dwelling traffic plugger uppers gotta eat too.
    What an urban oasis we will have!

  • Chet Desmond March 21, 2007 (11:13 am)

    Yessir it will.

  • Jiggers March 21, 2007 (12:18 pm)

  • Bill March 21, 2007 (12:38 pm)

    WTF? QFC??? There’s one in Westwood Village! We don’t need no steenkin’ QFC. Bring on TRADER JOES!!!

  • Chet Desmond March 21, 2007 (12:48 pm)

    Amen Bill and I think QFC and their advantage card BS blows anyway…
    Jiggers, you didn’t miss anything (no porn) LOL :)

  • Betsy March 21, 2007 (12:59 pm)

    Agree with Bill! Trader Joe’s, Trader Joe’s, Trader Joe’s!!!!!

  • Dorcas March 21, 2007 (3:06 pm)

    Yes indeed! Trader Joes!!!!!!!!!

    If they put a T.J.s in West Seattle it will be a compete nuthouse.
    I will keep driving out to Burien, thank you.
    In L.A. we lived 4 blocks from the Silverlake T.J.s, you couldnt even get in the door on a Sat. morning. So we ended up driving over to Glendale and there was about 5 people shopping every time.

    My 2 cents,
    Todd :)

    Just wondering what happened to my post here? No porn darn!! Someone mentioned,and I can’t find it how expensive Whole Foods is (and they are very yikes!!) But I just wanted to point out that Safeway in the Junction is already downright expensive. They have an incredible markup on their merchandise. I can get the same item at the dollar store in White Center for well, 1 dollar.

  • GenHillOne March 23, 2007 (8:02 am)

    Here’s an idea…when this QFC opens, close the Jefferson Square Safeway (my apologies to Safeway, but we’d still have the Admiral store as an option) and put Petco there instead!

  • Chet March 23, 2007 (8:40 am)

    great idea

Sorry, comment time is over.
