Could Denny’s help save Memorial Stadium?

Posted by Geeky Swedes on February 26th, 2008

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.
