The city wanted to build affordable (???) apartments here, but they also wanted to preserve the teetering walls (that’s all that remains) of the historic cannery building. So the plans retain the old walls, and construction is underway along the Greenway. Not sure if the graffiti stays.

You scored a bunch of B’s in that photo!
Building, Bricks, Barriers, Bicycle, Backhoe/w Buckets, Blue sky, even some tree Branches, and Blue graffiti . Whew!
Dang! I should have included myself in the photo, for the best B of them all!
I like it when at least something is preserved. Nice to have that wall be part of the new building.
I’m not sure, but I think the old wall will be more like an outer boundary around the property and not a part of the new building.
Retaining old walls is usually more costly than tearing them down, unfortunately. Glad they are saving them here, but how affordable are those new apartments going to be I wonder.
They’re shooting for “affordable,” but I think that really means “not quite so incredibly expensive.”
