On Aurora Avenue, at 43rd Street, just north of the cut, lies Seattle’s most opulent accomodations … the Thunderbird Motel.
In 2010, the Seattle Police Department declared the Thunderbird a “nuisance property”, and shortly thereafter, it was foreclosed upon. In the fall of 2012, this fine property will be demolished to make way for 71 affordable housing units run by Catholic Community Services. That’s right, boys and girls, you still have seven more months to go over and soak in the beauty that is the foreclosed Thunderbird.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m so glad that this property is not a nuisance anymore.
