Project Smackdown

R.C. Hedreen's Ninth & Stewart is supposed to become the biggest hotel in Seattle once it's completed. That's the tricky part, however, as a conflict between R.C. Hedreen and the hospitality workers' union might jeopardize the construction of the entire project. Via PSBJ, local labor union Unite Here Local 8 thinks the 1,700-room project is too big and would have a negative affect on wages. Hedreen is countering that this is just a ploy for higher pay and is now threateneing to shelve the $450M project and instead build smaller office & apartment buildings. [PSBJ]
