Developers Keep Our Sidewalks Open!

SeattleScape has had two great posts recently, About those sidewalk closures… and Street life? What street life?

I totally agree. I hate sidewalk closures. 1111 E Pike and that new commercial building on Madison just before the bridge to downtown bug me on a daily basis. I’d also love to see open sidewalks, no more metal enclosures and more street vendors.

About Matt Goyer

I love condos, lofts, floating homes, new construction and mid-century moderns so much so that since starting this blog in 2006 I've written over 2,000 blog posts about them!

For years I resisted becoming a real estate agent preferring to be a marketing executive at Redfin but after leaving Redfin (after seven years!) I caved in the spring of 2014 and became a broker. So if you need help finding that "Urbnlivn-style" place or selling your home email me at matt@urbnlivn.com, I'd be happy to help you.

Prior to Urbnlivn and Redfin, I worked at Microsoft after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Mathematics with a major in computer science.

You can also find me on Twitter, @MattGoyer, or LinkedIn.

    i totally agree on the street vendors. the biggest issue is health department rules which limit street vendors to selling coffee or hot dogs.
