Big ship blocks waterfront view

Move it

How will the Port of Seattle and the city of Seattle respond to the placement of the Matson container ship, blocking the views from Anthony’s Pier 66 and the Seattle Marriot waterfront [“Big ship eats into the view, restaurant business at pier,” News, Dec. 17]?

How many private homes/condos lost their valuable view due to blocking construction? With what compensation? One I know of lost a magnificent Sound/mountain view to the brick back wall of a larger condo.

The owners of Anthony’s and the Marriot possess sufficient clout to have some local agency accommodate them.

Will this boat be the next example of the “trust” foisted upon us by elected and/or appointed pawns of the powerful?

— Dean Allard, Lynnwood
