Swale on Yale

Breaking news from WorldChanging Seattle: Vulcan is partnering with the City of Seattle to build a big ole' two block biofiltration swale in the South Lake Union neighborhood. Its boundaries will be Pontius and Yale on the east and west and Republican and Thomas on the north and south. This is a super strategic spot seeing as the bioswale can catch much of the runoff jetting down Capitol Hill on its way to Lake Union. Read more here.

Ok, so Vulcan isn't completely bent on screwing up Seattle's livability. This doesn't get them off the hook for pushing for 400 ft. towers in SLU in the name of the environment, though.
