I am becoming increasingly aware of the number of new apartment buildings that are springing up in my neighborhood. I see the demolition of businesses (i.e. B&O Espresso) and houses in my area ruining the quaintness of my neighborhood. I am reminded of Ballard where there is a glut of ugly apartment buildings that are being built. Where is the charm of Capitol Hill?? I purposely decided to buy a condo up here because of the charm and diversity of this area. Now, I am being surrounded by the building of “generic” and cookie cutter apartment buildings. I fear that Capitol Hill is becoming just as generic as every other neighborhood in Seattle. Where is the Capitol Hill “uniqueness” going to?? I cringe everytime I go down my street and see nothing but houses being demolished. I am sorry I decided to buy up here. I never thought I would see the day when Capitol Hill is now becoming the new Ballard with a glut of apartment buildings. I know everything changes, but why my neighborhood?? It incensing me to see so many apartment buildings going up in my nice quiet neighborhood and no one seems to care. Well I do and I have been told there is nothing I can do to prevent this. Isn’t there?? I don’t want to see my neighborhood become a sea of cookie cutter apartment buildings, where old charming houses are bought and demolished at the drop of a hat. What can be done to prevent this increasingly apartment building glut that is happening?? Does anyone else care and what can be done???????
