News roundup: Civic Square, Okinawa

The news this morning includes the collapse of the Civic Square development project.

Puget Sound Business Journal, Daily Journal of CommerceSeattle Times, Seattle Met, and Seattle P-I report that the city’s partner on the Civic Square projects has backed out.

SeattleMet discusses former Council member Nick Licata’s legacy.

Seattle Globalist argues that the Seattle City Council should pass a resolution supporting Okinawa citizens in their fight against the US military’s construction of a new base on the island.

SeattleMet reports that as recently as March of this year, the Port of Seattle was considering the proposed SODO Arena site as a potential location for its own new headquarters.

Note: there were several more articles in the last 24 hours on the offensive reaction to last week’s SODO Arena vote, but they are all repeats  of earlier stories with no new pertinent information. From this point forward, I will only provide links to articles on the topic that contribute something new to the conversation.
