Arguments Over Mandating Section 8 Housing

Schack1_bigThere is a new apartment project being planned on Capitol Hill, on the corner of 14th Ave E & E Republican Street, that is said to be for renters looking for a boutique building to live in, with retail and a great walkable score. According to the Daily Journal of Commerce, new developers John Schack and Dugan Earl have formed a development and consulting  company in the Seattle area called Revolve, and will begin construction on their first project this summer. Finding the perfect site for the proposed 35 unit, 4-story apartment complex wasn’t easy. The dynamic due apparently spent 6 months analyzing  some 150 sites on Capitol Hill, Fremont, Ballard, Columbia City and West Seattle; all urban areas predicted to continue blossoming with renters.

While they were knee deep in the search, they ran into a road block, and a big one at that. According to Schack, “once a property is listed, it’s blood in the water for piranhas.” They found themselves coming in second, and being beat to the punch when expressing interest in any given project, so they found an alternative option. They approached sites that were of interest to them that were off-market, and purchased a 10,183-square-foot Capitol Hill site in November 2011 that is soon to be the home of their first project. The building will have 33 one-bedroom units, 2 studios, 19 stalls for below ground parking, a courtyard for entertainment, and a roof top deck. For more news to come on when the project will be leasing units, visit Revolve’s news blog.

Garbage Piling Up? Waste Management Strike Affects King County

Did you notice your garbage was still in the driveway when you came home from work yesterday afternoon? You weren’t the only one! The Waste Management Team in King and Snohomish counties went on strike yesterday afternoon against the largest refuse service over wage and benefits issues in the Northwest. According to the Seattle Times, the Local 117, which includes 153 recycling-route drivers walked out yesterday, and were joined by the garbage truck drivers of Local 174 shortly after.

Drivers began to pull service trucks into the South Seattle Waste Management yard, stepped out of their vehicles and picked up a picket sign. Their strike affects over 220,000 in King and Snohomish counties, and Waste Management could be issued steep fines should the strike drag out; up to $4,500 dollars a day for failing to make scheduled collections, and $250,000 if the strike drags out longer than a week. Drivers have been without a contract since May 31st, and are disputing the wage gap between recycle drivers who start at $17 an hour vs garbage drivers who’re starting at around $26 an hour. At this time there are no plans for negotiation in place, Waste Management hopes drivers will come back to work. For more information on the strike, visit the Seattle Times.
