Vulcan Real Estate recently announced that they put the 11 building Amazon campus in South Lake Union up for sale. Their reason? The sale will allow them to continue to build on the remaining 30 acres they own in the neighborhood and it will help to diversify their portfolio by liquidating some of the office space they own. Right now, they are constructing a new apartment building, the Stackhouse, and the next phase of the UW Medical Research facility in the area. And, announced yesterday, they will be starting construction in January on a two building expansion for Amazon at Westlake and Mercer. More info here and here.
What this likely means for the South Lake Union neighborhood in the future is more development, more businesses moving in, and, who knows, maybe a condo building will be in the mix. Only time will tell what Vulcan will do with their remaining land in the area but we can be sure that whatever they do will continue to help this neighborhood grow and expand.
