Perhaps, dear readers, we might learn a few more details about the McMenamins’ plans for the Tacoma Elks Temple after a luncheon in two weeks.
Commercial Real Estate Women Seattle & Sound are hosting a lunch panel May 14 at the Hotel Murano, 1320 Broadway, that promises “more exciting details” about the construction.
The group’s news release says construction is scheduled to begin later this year, though a time frame for that has been squishy for awhile. Representatives of the Portland-based brewpub picked up construction permits from the City of Tacoma in February, but work hasn’t begun yet. The company spokeswoman has consistently said that opening will happen at least a year after construction begins.
Anyway, back to the luncheon!
The presentation will be moderated by Heather Burgess, an attorney with the real estate and land use firm Phillips Wesch Burgess. Panelists include Bob Levin of the city’s economic development department; Grace Pleasants, the real estate developer who put together the original deal to bring McMenamins to town; and George Signori, a Portland architect working on the Temple.
Doors open at 11:30 a.m. Lunch begins at noon. Admission is $45 for CREW members and $65 for non-members. Register online at crewseattle.org.
