Seward Park PCC sold

This article was originally published in January 2015

The PCC Board of Trustees has approved the sale of PCC’s Seward Park building and property at 5041 Wilson Ave. S., Seattle. The sale of the Seward Park land and 7,200 square foot Seward Park building enables PCC to open its new 25,000 square foot Columbia City store with more choices and parking just a mile away, at Rainier Avenue South and South Edmunds Street.

Third Place Books is purchasing the Seward Park property and will operate a bookstore, café and possibly a pub, similar to its much-appreciated project at the former PCC location in the Ravenna neighborhood of north Seattle. Based on the experience with Third Place Books and the community feedback at the previous PCC site, PCC’s board and management are particularly pleased that Third Place Books will serve the Seward Park neighborhood.
