In addition, the Promenade 23 Shopping Center at 23rd and Jackson has recently been sold to new owners with possible major changes to that site. Staggers will tell us more.
SHA is planning a major redevelopment of Yesler Terrace, including expansion into Squire Park along and east of 12th Avenue. Fisk Zuniga will explain.
