    According to the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, the Cannery in Kirkland has been purchased.
    http://preservewa.org/News85.aspx
    “For nearly a decade, the owner of the Kirkland Cannery sought a preservation-minded buyer interested in rehabilitating the community ­landmark that had been in his family since the late 1940s. In the waning days of December, the announcement came that Kirkland resident Carl Bradley — president of a family nonprofit foundation — will not only buy the ­WPA-constructed Cannery Building, but will refurbish its exterior to its historic 1936 appearance. Like any preservation project, formulating a plan is only the first step of a very long process, but it is a crucial one and a cause for recognition and celebration!”
