Curbed mapped out all of the Puget Sound projects potentially affected.

LIGHTS! CAMERA! ACTION! Ballard's Edith Macefield House isn't actually the inspiration for Pixar's 'Up' but the iconic house might be headed to the big screen to tell it's own story. Fox Searchlight has picked up the film rights to Barry Martin's 2013 memoir Under One Roof, which tells the story of his friendship with Macefield while the Ballard Blocks went up around her house. Curbed has more details on the project as well as the status of the tiny home.
