Latest development proposal for 35th/Graham scrapped

The future of the vacant, recently cleaned-up High Point site at 35th and Graham (map) is again a question mark.

Last December, High Point-area residents were caught off guard to hear that the original plans for a mixed-use development on the northeast corner of 35th and Graham had been scrapped (WSB coverage here), and that a 90-townhome development (described in this story) was on the way instead. Seattle Housing Authority executive director Tom Tierney even came to High Point for a meeting at which he apologized for not letting homeowners know about it.

But this afternoon, we’ve confirmed that plan is dead. After getting a tip from Matt, we e-mailed SHA spokesperson Virginia Felton to ask about its status, and she replied: “The would-be buyer, Intracorp, decided that the project (90 townhomes) was not feasible for them at this time. Consequently, we are once again entertaining proposals for the site. Developers interested in the site may contact Frank Bosl at CB Richard Ellis.”

    I’m sure this is not a new idea, but wouldn’t a GROCERY STORE be nice there?

    Interesting. I hope they put retail back in the next building plan.

    Grocery store and retail. There is plenty of people around that both would help. You know what would do great in this area, a goodwill or something like it.

    A gap store would be nice

    I’m hoping for a retail or mixed use development, as well.

    My dad says a grocery is the best idea for everyone in the area. You should listen to my dad. :)

    I miss Doug’s VW repair…

    Grocery store would be great. Goodwill (like Trader Joe’s) does not do new construction. They typically occupy former grocery store buildings. Maybe Safeway could build a new store there and bail out of Jefferson Square allowing a Goodwill to move in there!

Sorry, comment time is over.
