- Substitution Version C (also known as Version 17) includes a series of changes to Version A and adds another set of amendments based upon further discussions between the stakeholders. This version was not presented to the Parks and Seattle Center Committee on August 4th, as the LLC indicated they would not agree to sign either version of the amended lease.
