Perhaps it's coincidence but news that the long-awaited Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) approval on Chris Hansen's SoDo arena just so happens to come a week after investors went public with very legit plans to building a competing project in Tukwila. The project still needs approval of a street vacation and opposition from various groups. Hansen said that although the NBA is his top priority, he is "100% supportive of the NHL returning to Seattle and playing in the Arena — and are completely open to the prospect of that occurring prior to the NBA."
