From the Tribune:

Two developers are crafting an ambitious plan that could accomplish three goals high on downtown Tacoma’s wish list in a single swoop: restoring the historic but crumbling Elks Temple building, attracting a McMenamins brew pub-hotel and opening a new specialty grocery store in the central city.

Tacoma developer Grace Pleasants and development partner Rick Moses of Southern California on Tuesday unveiled plans to buy the 93-year-old former Elks Temple at 565 Broadway and a large tract of undeveloped land north of the temple from Portland developer Williams and Dame.

That was what I was going to do if I ever won the lottery …
