Petition Filed to Appeal City’s Decision On Upper Level Signage at Pioneer Square Tower

June 27, 2018

Seattle-based real estate company American Life Inc. has appealed the City of Seattle’s decision rejecting a proposal for upper level signage at 255 South King Street, a new hotel and office tower in Pioneer Square. Represented by Darby DuComb and Michael Scruggs of Schlemlein Fick and Scruggs, along with Molly Terwilliger and Richard Yarmouth of Yarmuth Wilsdon, 255 South King Street filed a Land Use Petition Act appeal and civil complaint in King County Superior Court in early June.  American Life argues the City rulings violate it's right to free speech and due process. Following what is now a three year process to obtain approval for its upper level hotel and office tower signs, the case is challenging the outdated Pioneer Square Sign Code and design standards, as well as the Pioneer Square Preservation Board’s composition and lack of a quorum.
