New signs map Amazon’s sprawling campus, restaurants

Among the finishing touches on Amazon’s latest headquarters campus building is new signage that’s striking if you remember what its neighborhood was like a few years ago.

The signs — posted at the 207 Boren building, which is almost complete — have maps listing dozens of restaurants now open around the cluster of Amazon buildings in South Lake Union. Not included is the fleet of food trucks and carts that appear at lunch.

Maybe the signage will help landlord Paul Allen sell the property to someone.

The map doesn’t identify Amazon buildings, but they’re the dark blocks in the upper right. It doesn’t include all the offices the tech giant is occupying in the area. Nor does it mention other restaurants in the area that aren’t leasing property from Allen, such as the 13 Coins across the street from this sign.

Also new at the 207 Boren building is a vertical garden that looks neat, though I didn’t see any paperwhites in the mix of plants:

Here are a few pictures I took earlier of the 207 Boren building, which used to be a Seattle Times parking lot and the site of the Seattle bureau of the Associated Press:

I’d been wondering what was going on that blank wall:
