Monorail News, 2 Aug 2004

Landlords emerge as foes to monorail (The Seattle Times) - With a possible vote to kill the monorail project looming in November, Seattle's major commercial-property owners have emerged as the most vocal and powerful critics of the $1.75 billion elevated transit system. It's a dramatic change from 2002, when landlords split over the successful monorail ballot measure, which narrowly was approved by city voters.

Monorail hub still homeless (The Seattle Times) - When Seattle voters approved a new monorail in 2002, a mid-downtown stop at Second Avenue and Madison Street was meant to be one of the busiest hubs on the line. Nearly two years later, the Seattle Monorail Project still hasn't yet acquired property for the station from the federal government.
