Wallyreader Darcey e-mailed us with a link to a new permit from the Department of Planning and Development for 3920 Stone Way–a.k.a. “the festering pit” on the corner of Stone and 40th.
Folks may recall that we did a “festering pit update” a little over a year ago, when we spoke with Mike Derr of Redimensions–the general contractor. There really wasn’t much news but Derr sounded hopeful that financing would be resolved in the future.
So we phoned Redimensions again, and spoke to Scott Brewer, the Director of Construction. Brewer told us the new permit was for the foundation, but the project is still stuck in financing. So, once again there’s no telling when they’ll get to move forward with building something.
We also confirmed this with Eric Miller from QFC’s public affairs department, since QFC is still listed as owning the site.
Thanks for the tip, Darcey! We wish we had better news. Still, I think Little Wallydude had a great idea: let’s fill the hole with a gazillion little plastic balls and turn it into a giant ball pit!
