A 9 building forty townhome demonstration project is being proposed for the 500 block of 136th S by Habitat for Humanity and Cone Architecture. The proposal includes associated parking and landscape areas and will require a lot line adjustment to combine 3 lots into one. That's being processed now.
A land use application has been filed with the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections to allow a 5-story apartment building with 86 small efficiency dwelling units to be built at 1140 NW Market Street in Ballard. No parking proposed. The existing building, a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant will be demolished.
The project is viewable on the SDCI site under Record Number: 3036127-LU-001

Fusion food can mean the melding of many different kind of flavors but often, intensity is what defines the best of them. Phorale Way, which has opened it's own White Center location at 9418 Delridge Way SW brings fusion with a flair. They are only open for pre-order pickups for dinner for the time being as the restaurant gets going.
Led by chef Young Cho, Phorale blends Tex-Mex influences with Southeast Asian food in surprising and satisfying ways. Even though it's been a no frills operation thus far with the food being made in the back of a South Park convenience store to start, then to a food truck, Phorale has gotten a lot of attention from local media. Eater Seattle included Phorale among its Most Anticipated Restaurant Openings.

The Seattle Public Schools Board of Directors today approved the contract for hiring Brent Jones, Ph.D., as the district’s interim superintendent.
Dr. Jones’ official start date is no later than July 1, 2021 and he will serve as interim superintendent until June 30, 2022.
Dr. Jones will succeed current Superintendent Denise Juneau, who previously announced her intention to not seek renewal of her contract, which concludes June 30, 2021.
“This is a great outcome for SPS students and families. The selection of Dr. Jones brings needed stability and connectivity to Seattle Public Schools during this time of uncertainty and transition,” said Board President Chandra Hampson. “He is an experienced district leader with a proven track record supporting students, community and staff of color, while striving for overall operational excellence. It is a most critical set of skills at this difficult time.”

When you drive by the Cloverdale Business Park you don't normally think, "gourmet food"... but it's time you did.
The Osprey Bistro at 309 S. Cloverdale, described by owner Shane Ryan as "South Park's Best Kept Secret" is getting discovered by foodies and others who just enjoy a great meal, with good service. It's tucked into a corner of the Business Park but somehow when you are there, it feels a bit like its own little world.
Signs like this one have been placed at the following covered-reservoir park locations:
