Taproot Theatre expansion is on track

Times theater critic Misha Berson reports:

Taproot Theatre‘s proposed expansion is moving forward. Seattle’s Department of Planning and Development has conditionally approved the company’s design and land-use plans for a second theater, new dressing rooms and offices, as well as a cafe and wine bar.

The additional two-story, 12,000-square-foot facility will be erected on the site of the now-demolished Eleanor Roosevelt Building on North 85th Avenue, near Greenwood Avenue North, next door to Taproot’s main theater space. Owned by Taproot, the building was formerly occupied by several restaurants that were destroyed in a 2009 arson fire. (Taproot’s main theater and lobby area also sustained some damage from the blaze, which has since been repaired.)

The next step for the project is obtaining a construction permit from the city, which is currently in the works.
