Oct 9 2020, 10:38 am

Seattleites were shocked this week when news of the possible demolition of Elephant Car Wash broke.

The 19,442-square-foot property at the intersection of Denny Way and Battery Street has been the home of the Pink Elephant Car Wash since 1956.

According to the Daily Journal of Commerce, Seattle-based property management Clise Properties has filed an early plan with the city to demolish the car wash.

Those hoping to catch a glimpse of the iconic sign will be able to do so at the Museum of History and Industry on Lake Union, where the owners of Elephant Car Wash are planning to donate the sign.
