Amazon coming to Belltown?
I am sure we all know someone in Belltown that works for Amazon, or you might even be an Amazon employee yourself. It seems Amazon is looking to move into our fair neighborhood. The Seattle Times reported a couple of days ago that Amazon was eyeing two new properties for leasing. One located in the Denny Triangle, and the other in Belltown at 5th & Bell St.
I personally think that Amazon is to thank for some of the rejuvenation of Belltown thanks to all of the employees flooding into our new apartment buildings and condo’s. I remember a story previously from the Seattle Times that highlighted the fact that one of the newer apartment buildings in Belltown were at 70% Amazon employee capacity.
