Key will get some touch ups and renos, but WNBA and Seattle U may move to the new arena too. I would think the best thing is to convert it to a top flight concert venue for 10-12k ppl.

And as for the Mariners complaints, the Ms and MLS Sounders both played on Saturday night in town next door to each other. Ms drew 17,671 and the Sounders 38,948. Maybe the Ms should complain that the football/soccer teams are bad for the city too.
That might be the right way to go, since the music venue, Sodo Showbox, will end up being demolished to make room for the new arena.
