Early peek at Amazon’s amazing new HQ: Pizza, pavilion and more

It was a lovely day to walk down the street and poke around Amazon.com’s new headquarters campus that it will begin to occupy next month.

Builders working for developer Paul Allen are putting finishing touches on the centerpiece, a cluster of buildings around an open amphitheater built into the historic Van Vorst building, which used to be a stable for the Frederick & Nelson delivery horses.

Behind the yellow chevron is a woodsy gathering room where the fire’s already burning:

The cafeteria also has lots of bookshelves, wordy upholstery and a pizza oven:

Other buildings dwarf the Terry Avenue building that Tom Douglas is leasing for a restaurant or restaurants:
