Arts Breaking News: Consolidated Works “Seeking New Quarters”
Consolidated Works will not renew its lease with Vulcan (signed five years ago and scheduled to terminate on October 1, 2006) and will leave the 500 Boren Ave N address.
Here’s some verbiage from a press release that was leaked to The Stranger earlier today:
“Allena Gabosch, President of ConWorks, said, ‘… seismic improvements to the building are required by the city, and even after those improvements, our landlord will require a nine-month exit clause to permit it to develop our South Lake Union Lot if an opportunity arises.’”“The lease on the current ConWorks space ends on September 30, 2006, but ConWorks plans to vacate by July 31, 2006… In true ConWorks fashion, the organization will host a party the final weekend of July 2006 to celebrate all of the great art, great friendships, and great times that have been enjoyed at 500 Boren Ave N.”
I wonder how well the first three and a half years at 500 Boren Ave N will be represented at the party.
