Last Tuesday, we checked on some work at the idled Fauntleroy/39th/Alaska construction site. WSB contributing journalist Christopher Boffoli was told “routine maintenance”; he checked back on the site while in the area today after a few days of rain and photographed the moat you see in the photo above:
As I passed the Whole Foods hole I did notice something that was not immediately obvious when I went over there the other day. It seems they dug a moat around the perimeter of the site to collect rainwater. And the pumps they have installed are draining the water from these drainage moats. No one was digging at the time I was there but there was a tractor on the eastern side of the site that is no longer there. So they must have done the work after I left.
While checking out the work from earlier in the week, we did talk to DPD, which does not have any current investigations open regarding the site. Interesting side note – If and when construction resumes at some point, the city does not have to be notified until there is something for which a city inspection is required, say, a foundation; the permits are open and construction could just resume without notice.
