Fauntleroy Place site activity: Not what it appears to be


Thanks to John Cashill for sending us that photo of the backhoe that’s in action on the future Fauntleroy Place site (Schuck’s/Hancock Fabrics, south of West Seattle Bowl) as of this morning. We checked with Eric Radovich at BlueStar – developer for FP as well as Gateway Center on nearby ex-Huling land and the Spring Hill mixed-use building – and he says that while the backhoe has broken ground, so to speak, this is NOT the official groundbreaking for the project: It’s “there to dig a trench for geological testing.” Before FP can officially begin, Radovich tells WSB, there are a few more approvals and decisions required, including word on an official closing date for the current Hancock store (the company will be one of two retail tenants in Fauntleroy Place – the other, you are probably well aware, is Whole Foods).

    i actually went to whole foods the other day for the first time and although it was like triple the price of the met/thriftway, the hot seafood bar and the hot food area was sooo huge and with so many more choices of food then the metropolitan. i was at first not very welcoming of this idea since it is only a few blocks from my house but now i am excited!!!!

Sorry, comment time is over.
