Article by Christine Palmer; "Because the large site is not developed to its maximum allowed density under current zoning, it was a potential candidate for a redevelopment that would include demolition of the existing historic buildings. This seemed possible due to the fact that the property owner, Paul Allen’s Vulcan Real Estate, is currently in the process of redeveloping more than sixty acres in the South Lake Union neighborhood. The preservationists' goal was to ensure that the two historic terra cotta clad buildings would be saved, possibly as part of a larger redevelopment."
