SEATTLE-- If a jokester has their way, a vacant Green Lake construction site would turn into a huge play pit instead.
On the fence that encloses the cement hole at Woodlawn and Northeast 72nd Street, someone posted what at first glance, looks like a completely normal use-of-land notice.
However, upon closer inspection, it's definitely not. The sign reads developers intend to, construct one ground level ball pit pond containing 1,200,000 cu. ft. of rainbow plastic balls.
It gets better.
Parking for for 171 bicycles, 65 unicycles, and 13 tricycles to be provided in 2 levels within the structure, the sign continues. Existing ramp to be converted to one 40 ft. slide.
Is it just me or does that sound awesome?
The site has been empty and torn up for about three years. It's currently slated to house a future PCCNatural Market, condos and a maybe even a parking garage if all goes well.
