Seattle Central is probably coming to Beacon Hill after all.
The Seattle Times reports tonight that the Pacific Hospital Preservation and Development Authority’s governing council has agreed to a tentative deal for the state Commerce Department to lease 205,000 square feet of the Pacific Tower/PacMed building (13 floors) for 30 years. This will begin a 90-day due diligence period for the state, which plans to sublease six floors to Seattle Central Community College for health-training programs, including a new Bachelor of Nursing degree.
The remaining seven floors would be subleased to other non-profit agencies that focus on health care and social services.
The building has been mostly vacant since Amazon.com moved out in 2011.
