The newest building on Amazon’s humongous new headquarters campus is rising fast, and about to block our westward view.
Work began in 2007 on the 11 buildings — totaling 1.7 million square feet — that Amazon’s leasing from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.
The latest building will rise 12 stories on former Seattle Times property, replacing a small, two-story building that was leased to The Associated Press for 30 years before it was sold to Allen.
Here are a few pictures of the disappearing view from the paper’s 81-year-old office at Fairview and John. We’ll have to ease the pain and raise a glass to progress at one of those fancy new pubs that Amazon lured to the neighborhood.
