We earlier talked about the closed self-service carwash and the sale of the property under Chester Dorsey’s detailing business. And I suppose it shows my weaknesses in journalistic investigation and persuasion that we could never get the real story from the actual business owners. But I noticed yesterday that new signs have gone up at their 23rd & Madison location, announcing a move to the Safeco Plaza Building downtown (aka “The Box the Space Needle Came In”).
Now the question turns to what will be done with both of those properties? Will we be left with vacant lots for months or years until the economy recovers?
