Seattle_king_county_first_citizen Paul_allen_2

Paul Allen will be one of the recipients of this year’s King County First Citizen award. He was picked for his support of numberous areas including health and human services causes, dedication to the advancement of science, technology and the arts, and generous donations to various foundations in Seattle. As a founder of Vulcan Inc, he is well known for his high profile developments in South Lake Union (2200 Westlake, Enso, Rollin and Veer Lofts) which created quite a buzz from 2004-2006. With his contributions to Seattle, I think he well deserves this award.
