Or, I guess…it’s happening.
First, it was the demolition crew. Then it’ll be the cleanup. Next up will be the construction crews. And before you know it, foundations will be poured for seven to eight new homes.
My first thought: How will eight homes fit in there, and how small will the people be who live in them?
I guess the latter thought is out of my control, but it’s a bummer that added piece of diversity will be gone. One can only hope the new homes in its place won’t be so expensive that continued diversity isn’t an option.
Oh, about those homes…
Maybe not so measly anymore.
The seven to eight homes, as per a rep from Everett, will resemble the likes of buildings recently constructed on N. Mississippi, as well as on NE Graham (pictured on right).
Looks nice. But how will the neighbors feel having eight new homes nearby? Who knows. That’s when we enter the muddled world of NIMBYsm, gentrification, maintaining neighborhood character, etc.
I won’t go there, though. I’ll leave that for the comment section.
* Side note: coincidentally, there’s a song called “65th and Holgate” by the band, I Never Heard The Bullet. Hmm.
