Washington Convention center distillery?

2 posts in this topic

Just saw a story about the 1.4 BILLION dollar expansion to the convention center with a distillery as a proposed cornerstone. Who's gonna step up for this?

How about just tearing the old one down and building a new one? I did the roof on that thing about 10 years ago, and let me tell you. Of all the buildings in Seattle, that is the one you don't wanna be in when a earthquake hits. There is symmetric cracking in all the concrete decks that follow the iron. Wonder if there smart enough to widen I-5 under it when they do. And I doubt the loss of revenue is because of the size, probably more due to traffic congestion. Hence the reason I don't make the trip to Seattle anymore.
