Denny Way Developments

Denny Way has become a hotbed of construction activity with no less than eight residential projects currently under development. These projects will dramatically re-invent the SLU, Denny Triangle & lower Queen Anne landscape.

Four of these are located within blocks of each other near Denny Way & Aurora Avenue. Of the four, two are expected to be apartments with the other two being condominiums.

    What’s the deal with leaving the bank of america building (currently empty) on the 100 Taylor Ave N & 567 John Street property. I find that kind of odd.

    And the Icon Tower thing seems crazy. That parking lot is just not that big.

    I really hope all the Clise properties end up developed to their fullest. Seems a shame to have downtown sort of “stop” where it does now.
