On January 19, 2007, an affiliate of JC Mueller LLC purchased a 17,456-square foot property at the corner of East Madison Street and 22nd Avenue. JC Mueller LLC has retained Mithun Architects to design 100 units of housing, 6,000 square feet of street-level retail space and associated covered parking for this site.
Now the location of the Twilight Exit Bar, this site was home to one of Seattle's legendary venues, the Mardi Gras. To help infuse some of the rich history of the site into the new building, JC Mueller LLC has retained Seattle music historian, Peter Blecha. Blecha will work with design and marketing teams to ensure that the new buildings celebrate the rich musical history of the area. Construction to begin mid-2008.
