Taproot Theatre’s expansion plans took another step forward today as the Seattle Department of Planning and Development issued its Determination of Non-Significance with regards to environmental impacts.
The theatre is expanding into the space formerly occupied by four restaurants that burned in the Oct. 23, 2009, arson. The new building will include a second theater, dressing rooms, offices, scene workshop and a café and wine bar at 208 N. 85th Street.
DPD also conditionally approved Taproot’s design plans, and its plan to install a wine bar in its new café.
Appeals of any of DPD’s decisions must be received by the hearing examiner no later than Aug. 30.
