City Council Moves to Preserve Famed Seattle Music Venue The Showbox
An iconic Seattle music venue that could’ve been slated for destruction has been given a temporary reprieve.
The City Council voted 8-0 Monday to include the Showbox in the Pike Place Market historic district. KOMO reports that would temporarily stop plans to construct a 44-story building on the site by a Vancouver, B.C. development company, the Onni Group.
Last week, more than 150 local and national artists signed an open letter urging Seattle residents to take action to #SAVETHESHOWBOX. It was published in The Seattle Times.
