Downtown Seattle bus station being sold for convention space
SEATTLE -- The Metropolitan King County Council has voted to sell a 4-acre bus station in downtown Seattle to make way for the Washington State Convention Center. The Seattle Times reports the council voted Monday to sell the station for $162 million. The Convention Place Station's 570 busses will be evicted throughout the next two years, which would have partially needed to happen anyway to make room for the rail-extension project set to open in 2021.
