Amazonbuildings-300x240Feels like 2004 when new projects were being announced every week (except these aren't condos and they're all by Amazon).  

Yesterday, Vulcan announced that Amazon has just entered yet another agreement to expand it's Seattle footprint.  This time, they agreed to two new buildings along Westlake and 9th and between Mercer and Republican scheduled for occupancy in 2015.  More details here.  

At the current rate of Amazon's explosive growth in South Lake Union, you almost wonder if Jeff Bezos or a visionary developer should build a giant high-tech condo in South Lake Union tailored to the needs and preferences of tech workers.  Maybe the building should have it's own app, social network, iPad elevator controls (or more likely Kindle given the audience), chargers and wifi in the lounge, crazy high speed connectivity, a virual kindle library for the residents, and electric charging stations for all the Leafs and Volts 😉

In related news, Washington State was recently rated the #1 state for tech with higher concentration and % growth in tech jobs than California.  Check out the cool map here.
