Hillside Lot R.I.P.

Two Decembers ago this photo was taken. Started to notice a huge open little hill lot was in danger and the heavy machinery had been called in to dig it up. But had so much hope that a cool house could be built on this big lot. Maybe a nice two story with a huge grassy yard. Maybe a long single story inna cool style.

Then this was taken last September. Damn that is a lot of dirt taken out! Gonna be a big house. Remember driving by and seeing this younger hipsterish dude talking to a couple workers. Thought, hmmm, maybe that is a good sign we'll see some cool architecture for this new house.

The 2008 New Year came around when I cruised by and saw this. Looks kinda weird. Why is there several "rooms" in that first level of concrete? Wait, there is no way that they are building townhomes here right? Can't have another disaster like down the road! I am still hoping for the best but I am afraid to drive by and see the latest.

Hi, Above the City,

Love your pics and commentary on the blog. As for these structures, these are the foundation for three garages. There will be three houses side-by-side, according to the architect, and I saw the blueprints. The design is not bad, however not better than a hillside with foliage.

They encountered money and supply problems, according to the architect, and that's why this project has been dragging on for so long. They started during the housing boom of 2006, and you can guess the rest of the story. The original plan was for three houses selling for $850,000 ea. We'll see what happens.

Thanks again for your work on the blog.

Thanks for the info WB!!

Interesting. Still don't like the fact that there will be 3 houses on a 2 house lot but these are those times.
