Learn And Give Input On Future Of Historic Building At Magnuson On Saturday

On Saturday from 1-5, the community can learn about the future of Magnuson Park's most historic building, Building 2, hosted by the Magnuson Park Advisory Committee (MPAC).
The community can tour the building, meet experts and explore development possibilities and learn about this historic asset and give input. 

The information says:

What is the Future of Magnuson Park’s Most Historic Building?
$30 million Project Seeks Community Input on Uses and Funding
The meeting will begin with a rare 40-minute tour of the building. From there, attendees will go to the Officers Club in the newly renovated Building 30 down the street to view current plans and gather information pertinent to the building’s redevelopment which is sure to take a complex mix of partners and funding. The public’s thoughts will be recorded throughout the breakout sessions of the day and used to inform Seattle Parks and Recreation’s support for the building’s development.

Representatives will be on hand from the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, the Seattle Office of Film and Music and Next Step Archery (as part of their larger project, Magnuson Park Center for Excellence). The film industry has long had an interest in using the building as a sound stage, while the Magnuson Park Center for Excellence is hoping to turn the building into a sports complex featuring archery, lacrosse and other athletic uses. In addition to potential developers, information will be available regarding possible funding mechanisms and historical building facts placing it in context within the park and its many master plans.
Originally constructed in 1929, the building is comprised of two airplane hangars and many office and studio areas throughout its 144,000 square feet.
