The first tests of the relationship between the city of Seattle and Triad Development are over. The marriage — and the Civic Square project — is still on, but it may be a long wait.
The anticipated result of this public-private liaison is a new complex right in front of City Hall on the block between Cherry and James streets and Third and Fourth avenues.

There will be retail buildings on the south and west sides, parking and a transit station.
