The Missing Mansion

Losing a fine old house to demolition is not news in Seattle. A recent project on the crest of Capitol Hill resulted in an unusual, and probably temporary, outcome. I walked past the site of a huge early lumber baron style house every week on my way home from a particular store. I saw the writing on the cyclone fence, so to speak, and then missed a week or two's errands. The next time I passed the property, the triple lot was level, had two inches of sprouted grass, and a small greenhouse in place. The fence remains.

I find this a charming and heartening way to manage a vacant lot pending further developments -30-
