Model Remodel

Spotted recently on Capitol Hill:

Model Remodel, a Seattle design/build firm, looks to be remodeling the old Skillet Restaurant space on 12th Ave.

I loved the old Model Remodel website, featuring the owner, fashion and glamour model Jason Legat. Referring to himself as “The Smile Builder” he had a double-duty site, offering himself for both modeling and RE-modeling. Remodeling, get it?

The years will take their toll and I guess Mr. Legat was tired of being just another pretty face, so he has a new website now, but we will always fondly remember the old Model Remodel.


Velocity Dance Center has gotten one step closer to realizing their dream of a new long term home on Capitol Hill. One of the may non-profits being dislocated from the Oddfellows building- they have found a beautiful new home at 1621 12th Ave- the old Capitol Hill Arts Center space.

Seismic upgrades and a needed change of use by building landlord Elizabeth Linke took some time over the summer and early fall. In the last week, Velocity has gotten the go-ahead for the city to being their demolition and construction work.
