Boom The New Proposed Building to Take the Place of the Rainier Cold Storage Building in Georgetown

Sabey—the corporation that’s tearing down the Rainier Cold Storage Building and replacing it with something new—had a meeting with the neighborhood in October to show plans for the new building they proposed to build, and the neighborhood freaked out. Hated it. Couldn’t believe what they were seeing. Talked about Georgetown turning into Belltown. Or into Fremont. One horrified guy said that he could very easily see a Tully’s or a Kinko’s in the ground floor of the proposed building; of course, a Tully’s or a Kinko’s in Georgetown is anathema to what Georgetown—according to Georgetown residents—is.
Last week, Sabey unveiled plans for a new proposed building that is, it must be said, a helluva lot better than their previous proposal. Here is the old Rainier Cold Storage Building:
And here is the new proposed building (with, apparently, its attendant new name and marketing scheme):
