Historic Washington Hall is looking to start phase III in their massive renovation project. Built in 1908, this building has served as home for variety of ethnic and artistic communities over it's life span. In 2009 Historic Seattle stepped in to save it from being torn down, now it's time for major repairs and additions.
The need is to raise around $6 million, which would go toward seismic retrofit, ADA compliance, finishes, performance and operating space build-out, and the addition of an elevator. If you interested in hearing more about the details of this project, the public hearing will take place on Thursday, October 24th in the Garfield High School Commons at 6 pm, doors open at 5:30.
