How much better can it get?

Boeing settles its labor issues, Amazon keeps growing in South Lake Union, Microsoft is thriving with its Xbox, etc., etc., etc. And now the Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl? What a great city to live in, work in, and invest in.

If you were from out of town this past weekend you would have been thoroughly impressed by the sheer number of people walking around downtown. Shoppers, diners, and tourists were everywhere. I went to a newer restaurant the weekend before and it was standing room only. Literally. This city has never performed so well as it is now.

The only thing that seems out of place now are the lingering For Rent signs. I don’t know if this is due to increased rents or fewer new tenants coming around but I cannot help but notice signs are out longer lately.
