More restaurants close as mall closes as part of redevelopment project
NEW YORK — More restaurants are closing as part the redevelopment of the Seattle-area mall as part to be redeveloped as a mixed-use development.
The mall, which was closed in August 2016, is now slated to reopen in 2019 with more restaurants.
The Seattle Times reports the mall’s closing will bring an end to an era for many downtown Seattle restaurants.
“The closure of the mall is an important milestone in our redevelopment efforts,” said Steve H. Stine, president and CEO of Seattle Partners.
“With the help of a partnership with the Seattle Economic Development Corp., the Seattle Partnership will be able to continue to bring more businesses downtown.
With the opening of the redevelopment, our businesses will be in a much better position to thrive, to create new jobs and to offer great customer service.”
