Seattle board votes to nominate Showbox Theater for landmark status
SEATTLE -- Seattle's Landmark Preservation Board voted Wednesday in favor of nominating the Showbox Theater for Landmark status. Developers have been wanting to use the property for a high-rise apartment building, but fans of the longtime music venue have been fighting to save it. Wednesday's vote doesn't keep the Showbox but from the wrecking ball, but it's a step toward protecting it.
