When you see what Douglaston Development has done on their home turf in New York City as compared to what they are trying to do at 5th & Virginia here in Seattle, it's really appalling. Shame on them!
Now look what they are trying to do here in Seattle...put a 500' mega-tower on an under-sized parcel right across the alley from an existing condo with virtually a solid glass wall facing it. This ill-conceived, oversized, poorly designed monstrosity will adversely affect light, air, and privacy for residents of both buildings.
The hyprocrisy of Douglaston is unbelievable. We believe that it can only be motivated by one factor...GREED!
The only thing more inexplicable than Douglaston's lack of concern about Seattle's downtown residents is the fact that the City of Seattle through it's own Design Review Board and Department of Construction and Inspections has so far failed to enforce Seattle Municipal Code 25.05.675.G, which gives them the authority and responsibility to mitigate "unforeseen, adverse impacts" such as these.
If you agree, please write Garry Papers at email@example.com, reference project #3019699, and ask them to enforce the law (SMC 25.05.675.G), and quit favoring out-of-state developers over local citizens. Enough is Enough!
