City council approves Fort Lawton redevelopment after contentious debate
SEATTLE - Parts of Magnolia are known for the views, sprinkled with million-dollar homes. And many flock to the area for Discovery Park, a quiet oasis of open space. Right next to the park is Fort Lawton, an old Army outpost. It’s unused space that’s been a battleground for redevelopment. On Monday, the Seattle City Council unanimously gave the green light to redevelop Fort Lawton.
