You are absolutely right, this neighborhood has acres of undeveloped land (mostly due to basalt) that is beginning to see development. I happen to live near four such duplexes (8th and Garfield area) and have always begrudged the developers for suburbanizing the neighborhood by placing garage doors where front porches belong. On the other hand, most of these duplexes rent for about $900-$1200 per month, and typically bring Gonzaga or U-district students into the area, which is a great benefit to the business district.
You might also want to check in with what's happening on Perry. Phase II is nearly complete and the Farmers' market opens this Thursday. Cheers.


You could also include photos of some of the "in fill" plywood structures to appear in the once historic Logan Neighborhood. Are there no zoning regulations in existence in our town to prevent such willful destruction of a neighborhood? Apparently developers/landlords have a free ticket to build barracks style housing and garage doors on the street as they desire. Unless folks stand up to this and demand the city to get tough through protective zoning laws this creeping illness will contniue to invade and denegrate our community.
