West Seattle scenes: Monday night miscellany


A week or so ago, we spotted the predecessor to that sign at West Seattle Nursery – it simply said “Under New Management,” which brought us a couple of notes from folks who wanted to know if that meant the nursery had been sold. Never got to check in person, but this amusing new sign appears to be proof it hasn’t. Meantime, a sign in The Junction proclaims a new development’s name; exactly one month after the teardown of an old house at 41st/Edmunds, south of Jefferson Square, a sign in front of the steeply sloped lot declares the future cluster “The Incline on Edmunds”:


The web address on the sign, by the way, takes you to a page with (currently) only renderings of the future definitely-not-cookie-cutter townhomes. Last but by no means least, tonight’s the official full moon; on the other side of the moonrise we shot last night, Scott C sent us this photo of the moonset early this morning:


Can’t guarantee a similar sight Tuesday morning, but the moon’s high in a cloudless sky right now, so if you’re up early, look toward the Olympics, just in case.

    Wow, that Edmunds development is easily Madison Park-class and easily has a view worth much, much more. I’d love to have one of those units as my Junction pad – dream on, eh!

    I love the West Seattle sense of humor!

    A large concrete retaining wall in the front that says “keep the f*** out!” Nice!!!

    well … these renderings look a little closer to massing studies than full renderings … so I’d be somewhat surprised if that winds up with a big concrete wall (relevant to discussions earlier today, that would be a tagger’s paradise …) … guess we’ll see soon enough.

    LOL! Love the WSN sign!

    My dog is going to be excited to have a new concrete wall to mark. It usually reflects our (his?) feelings about eventually being pushed out of our cheap apartments down the street by such “classy” developments. In fact, I had a dream last night our building went up for sale…hmmm….

Sorry, comment time is over.
