Last week, we told you about the threat facing the really cool mural
at 424 NE Broadway.
Today, we're happy to report that it looks like the colorful 13-x-27-foot mural greeting westbound commuters is finally safe. Talk Mobile, a concept store for T-Mobile, will rent the space and keep the “Hope is Vital: It Takes a Planet to Save a Village' mural intact.
Store owner Shehbaz Chaudry had to negotiate with T-Mobile to have its signage co-exist with the existing artwork. Landlord Samantha Waltz is elated that a resoultion was reached, saying "The mural stays [and] we have a commited tenant."
Talk Mobile hopes to move in by Nov. 1
