I heard from a client of ours last week who was inquiring about how the new Amazon development could change the views at 2200 Westlake. I decided to do some research and as you can see, I was able to diagram some of the potential changes below.
In my opinion, the biggest impact would be on the Southwest side of 2200 Westlake (photo 1), The South side of Enso (photo 2) and the Northwest corner of the Cosmopolitan (photo 3). With that said, I don’t think Seattle condo owners should worry. Although views change a bit, the economic impact, including the rise in property value will outweigh any and all of the negatives associated with the change of view (IMO). More people = more organic stimulus. Denny Triangle, South Lake Union, and all of Downtown will benefit immensely as the Amazon property is developed. Look for more retail shops, restaurants, better transportation and a boost to the hotel industry. Have I told you yet that I REALLY believe in the direction of South Lake Union? (just checking).
