Could Denny’s help save Memorial Stadium?

Seattle PI columnist Robert Jamieson doesn’t mince words about the Ballard Denny’s. “The Denny’s site is run-down, a nostalgic eyesore,” he writes. “It carries little historical heft and has debatable architectural import compared with… Memorial Stadium at Seattle Center.” With planners considering replacing the stadium with a giant parking venue or an amphitheater, stadium supporters think the Denny’s vote paves the way to saving it. “If the Ballard Denny’s site was essentially spared by a sole criterion of the landmarks board — being an ‘easily identifiable visual feature of its neighborhood’ — Memorial Stadium offers many reasons for Seattle to rally,” Jamieson writes.
