Allied Arts' Headquarters in Yakima Temporarily Closed

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA -- Allied Arts' headquarters in Yakima's Gilbert Park are temporarily closed.

The executive director said one side of the building is jutting out, and they're concerned for the safety of the people inside. They called city inspectors who determined the building needed to be closed until structural engineers can take a look.

The director said he expects the closure to last about two weeks.

"There's a sort of silver lining in this cloud in that we're in the middle of a strategic planning process," said Robb Wasielewski, the Executive Director of Allied Arts. "It's great that it's happening now as opposed to after we've already set what were going to do and then 'uh oh.' We've got to deal with the building."

The Warehouse Theater Company is a regular tenant. We're told they were using the building for their holiday production, and now are in the process of making adjustments.
