Seattle Times letters to the editor

Proposed buildings may block views of the Space Needle

Buildings will impact lake recreation

Thanks for the good article “Needle, Needle, who’ll see the Needle?” [NWMonday, March 11]. Building 125- to 240-foot high buildings one block from Lake Union will block the sun at the new park and wind on the lake.

The Center for Wooden Boats has been at the south end of the lake for 35 years and gives sailboat rides to thousands of people every year. Thousands of other sailors enjoy the lake as well. Please keep the towers at 85 feet maximum within 1,000 feet of the lake.

–Dan Morris, volunteer sailing instructor at Center for Wooden Boats, Seattle
