There is enough development on Capitol Hill and the period between design review and project completion can be so long that it is easy to lose track of what these gigantic cranes are up to.
You’ve probably noticed that the project across from Brix is starting to take shape now that construction has risen above the massive pit. Here’s a reminder of what’s coming in the massive lot — 60+ feet of mixed-use retail, apartments and ground-level townhome units — after another year of construction:

I had a quick chat with Exxel Pacific project manager David Huber about status of the project. He says the construction should be complete by September 2010 with the larger north section likely to be ready earlier that summer. Amazing how long it still takes to complete projects of this scale. 2010 is far enough off that we’ll have to do another update or three to remind what’s coming.
For another write-up on the project, check out Seattle Courant’s coverage from last summer.
Here’s another Broadway project we recently re-reviewed — this one down by Bobby Morris across from Seattle Central.
