Amazon.com growth: A Seattle perspective

Wall Street may not be impressed by Amazon.com’s recent growth, but here on John Street it’s hard to ignore.

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.
