Russian Tycoon Buys Rights to Observation Deck and Restaurant of Seattle’s Space Needle Plans Include Russian Orthodox Chapel


A Joyous Lent to All!

Per Seattle Intelligencer:  ” Russian Tycoon and devout Orthodox believer Stanislav Strumilin has purchased the rights to the Seattle Space Needle Restaurant and Observation Deck.  His Lease will take effect in 5 years and his plan is to convert the space into a Russian Orthodox Chapel.  There are rumors that he also wishes to add a Russian flag over the famous monument, but there are no official plans in place for this at this time.

“I wanted to bring a Blessing to all the Northwest, United States.  Just as Russians once preached the Faith in Alaska many years ago, I wanted to share the faith as well.”  While it may seem an overly ambitious plan, his political ties, deep faith and Midas touch with business may well make it a success.  His ventures include oil exploration, refining, mining and heavy machinery interests.  His plans include the full size Chapel, a bookstore and a small Tea Shop which will be called the Samovar.  The artist renderings and blueprints for the proposed changes will be available in the next three months for city officials to review.”  Editors Note as more info becomes available it will be posted on OrthodoxNorthwest.
