40 Stories In SLU?

Seattle Times, South Lake Union’s skyline could rise to 40 stories:

On Tuesday, Seattle started sketching out a new skyline for the neighborhood, one with 40-story condo and 24-story office towers potentially filling the blocks between Denny Way, Aurora Avenue and the lake shore. The city hopes to direct future regional growth to this area, adding 16,000 jobs and 8,000 more housing units by 2024.

    mark my words, SLU is going to be the largest failure in the history of Seattle.

    I second SLU as being a failure in the short term, or at least painful to the pocketbooks of ordinary people. The Veer is only 50% sold. Any sales figures on Endo and Rolling Flats?

    I can’t help but think of Moda’s “100% sold” number when I see these first-party numbers. First Moda was 100% sold, then 85% sold, then they went all-apartments. The new Vulcan buildings seem curiously similar to me…

    Paul’s not worried. He knows we’ll just bail him out! It’s all about socializing risk and privatizing profits.
