Earlier this month, we reported the sad news that Edith Macefield’s iconic Seattle home likely faced demolition, after its new owners determined that it would be too expensive to renovate into a coffee shop. The bungalow came to share a city block with a shopping center in the downtown neighborhood of Ballard when Macefield, the home’s former owner, refused to sell her property to developers. The now-vacant home, a symbol for anti-corporate struggles, has reportedly been saved from the chopping block and will remain intact, thanks to a yet-to-be-named nonprofit organization.
