Seattle SuperSonics, Chris Henson, NBA, atbnews
It ain’t over yet. That’s if you believe property records that show Chris Hansen just completed another big purchase in Seattle’s SoDo neighborhood. According to those records, Hansen — the San Francisco-based investor who’s leading the charge to bring professional basketball back to Seattle — paid $32 million for a warehouse and other connected buildings that border S. Holgate Street. The property, more than 4 acres in size, stretches from S. Holgate Street all the way south to Walker Street. The price paid by Hansen’s company is nearly three times the assessed value. His company, known as WSA Properties, now owns close to $100 million of property in the SoDo neighborhood. One source close to the dealings said, “This is still all about the Sonics.”
