At the top of local KOMO website Friday was an article with the headline, “Seattle Nightclub, El Corazon, site of Pearl Jam’s first show, is getting demolished.” When you open the article, there is a big picture of the building in question, taken from across the street. But something comes in between the camera and the building.
Welcome to Seattle, where you can’t go anywhere downtown without encountering a new form of housing. Yes, that would be the requisite homeless encampment. Which, by the way, is not referred to in the article even once. The article states that the building (which is easily visible from I-5 southbound) is being demolished to make way for a new residential tower. I wonder if the residents of that new tower will like the view.
