Seattle City Council takes action to at least temporarily save Showbox music venue
SEATTLE -- The Seattle City Council voted unanimously Monday to expand the boundary of the the Pike Place Market Historical District to include the Showbox property on an interim basis for 10 months. The action comes as a petition is circulating to save the Showbox music venue, after a report that the building will be leveled to make room for a $100 million apartment high-rise building.
