HOW STARTUP FUNDING WORKS
MIKE EASTON’S PIZZERIA GABBIANO OPENS TODAY IN PIONEER SQUARE
Don’t walk, run, because the line is now forming at chef Mike Easton’s Pizzeria Gabbiano. After a series of dry runs last week, the pie shop swings its doors open today in the old Pacific Commercial Bank Building. Named after “seagull” in Italian, Gabbiano’s 1,000-square-foot dining room is refreshingly unfussy. Sicilian-style pie topped with the likes of cauliflower, capers, and anchovies, or cherry tomatoes with basil, is cut into squares with shears and sold by the kilo, then served in plastic baskets with a side of chili oil for dipping.
A TECH CAMPUS ON THE EDGE OF DOWNTOWN SEATTLE?
The City of Seattle and real estate professionals are hopeful to attract technology giants to the Seattle region with a rare piece of property. Starting this week, The Seattle Housing Authority, working in conjunction with Kidder Matthews, plans to begin marketing a 4.41 acre parcel just southeast of the downtown core near Harborview Medical Center known as Yesler Terrace. “We think the time is right to attract a major tech tenant to Seattle, perhaps from the Bay Area or somewhere else,” said Stan Snow of Kidder Matthews.
