Propeller Found and in Parks’ Possession

Seattle Parks has possession of the propeller that was stolen earlier this week from the University District. After discovering the stolen propeller at the Northwest Corporate Park in Kent, a security guard contacted the Kent Police Department. 

The 70” diameter, 1,260 lb stainless steel propeller is being donated to Parks by the University District Community Council and Philip Thiel, naval architect and Professor Emeritus of Architecture and Urban Design and Planning at the University of Washington. It was recently stolen from his backyard.

Seattle Parks is moving forward with installation plans for the propeller at North Passage Point Park located at 600 NE Northlake Way, Seattle WA 98105.
