^^ It is too expensive to repair it. I don't think the owner of McGuire Apartments can afford to fix it.
^^ I think they will demolish floor to floor just like one building (Deschutes Building I think) in New York City next to Ground Zero. I'd love to see implosion in person but I don't think it is good idea for them to do that. That could destroy some low rise buildings next to The McGuire Apartments and not safe for many residents who live in Belltown to breathe dusts from the implosion. I bet they might demolish that building by end of the year or early next year since they asked all tenants to move out by the end of the year plus they offer money to move out by May 15.
More information about this building.
That is going to be a great way of making the area inviting to more people than just drug addicts and drunkards. Now maybe if they can get that big housing development underway on the north lot of the old Kingdome . . . .Any updates on the skating rink in Occidental Park? (=
