Though much of Seattle’s tech expansion and news has revolved around Amazon, other key players are expanding their presence at South Lake Union. As GeekWire reported this week, Expedia and Apple are moving along nicely with their new Emerald City campuses.
The last few years have proven fortuitous for Seattle, as the city has undergone sustained growth with new development projects. The Downtown Seattle Association recently reported that there are a total of 66 major projects currently under construction, a figure that is expected to stay relatively stable in the near future. From South Lake Union to SoDo, it isn’t hard to see that the city is expanding. Cranes are in view in nearly every direction you turn and it is hard not to wonder what is being built. The answer? Mostly, apartments.
