Tukwila NHL Arena Plans; Honoring The Seattle Box House

Without further ado, we present the latest and greatest real estate news from our sister site, Curbed Seattle.

ARENAWIRE -- Chris Hansen and Seattle Mayor Ed Murray's big plans to bring an arena to Seattle officially have competition with the news that a group is moving forward with plans to build an arena in Tukwila for an NHL franchise. Check out some rough sketches of the arena from Mulvanny-G2 Architecture, which investors hope to open by Fall 2017.

HISTORY LESSONS -- Ask someone to describe THE architectural style that defines Seattle and you'll probably get a dozen answers. In a look back, Curbed Seattle decided to zero in on a style so specific that it's literally got Seattle in the name: The Seattle Box. It's not the prettiest architectural style but, dammit, it's ours.

VIDEO INTERLUDE -- Back in 2013, Amazon made a recruitment video aimed at helping job candidates "learn a little about life in Seattle." As gentrification and the wealth gap in town have grown, a parody version of the video hit YouTube this week, bringing some brutal honesty with it. "I've been here now for six years and I can't imagine what this place must've been like before all the new money, colorful condos and ferris wheels. It sounds horrific."
