The Statesman’s big Friday story on a ballpark at the former Kmart site on Americana at Shoreline sets a big vision.
But this plan has some big challenges.
First – there is little to no guarantee St. Luke’s Health System will sell the land for this use. I checked in with SLHS Public Relations Manager Anita Kissée. She confirms that the chunk of land is in play as the non-profit hospital system reorganizes its real estate holdings. But she was clear – the ballpark group isn’t the only group that hopes to own the land.
