Actual, a real progressive would advocate for stronger government regulation of business, and end to subsidies to attract tech jobs to overcrowded markets like Seattle, significant impact fees, significant construction of public (vs nonprofit) housing, and serious intervention in the so-called free market that is failing most of the (soon-to-be-former) residents of Seattle as well as those of areas that really need job growth and new residents.

Per DPD 2015 report to the City Council (p2)

"The flexible approach to parking was was expanded over time so that new development is not required to provide parking in Urban Centers, light rail station areas, and most parts of Urban Villages (on sites within a 1/4 mile walk of of a stop with frequent service."

Your project is almost certainly outside of the Urban Center Boundary.

Yeah, a shit ton of 300' tall tech office buildings where there are now affordable low and midrise apartment buildings is gonna bring rent down for sure!

Trickle-down economics by any other name.....

PS - @3 and 7 - parking requirements in the U-District (and I think in most other urban centers) have already essentially been eliminated (despite the fact that the professional liars at DCLU/DPD/SDCI promised that they'd be preserved when the neighborhood agreed to the last set of major upzones).

Ben Schneidelman can move his ass to Houston if he wants to live in a free market developers paradise where there is no zoning.

Failing that, maybe he can at least put his money where his mouth is and move closer to his tech job on the Eastside so I don't have to subsidize his transit commute with my car tab fees.

@22,

Kiss my recreational bike riding/commuting far-too-often in traffic that a vocal (and smug, privileged, and insufferably self-righteous) 3% minority of street users have created ass, Mags....

PS - on behalf of all of the disabled folks and delivery drivers who are being screwed bigtime by a lot of these new protected bike lanes, fuck you right back.

Bullshit - appeasing 3% of commuters at the expense of everyone else is idiocy - and evidently Ed Murray knows it too.

Because bike lanes are a stupid traffic-congestion causing waste of money that will never draw a significant amount of commuters (and eventually maybe going from 3.4% of trips to 5% doesn't rate).

Now if only they'd kill the other ones that are still in the planning stages and/or are underway (Roosevelt Ave - I'm looking at you).

@7,

Take that "exclusionary zoning" broken record and stick it where the sun doesn't shine. You need to get of Capitol Hill/SLU/Downtown more - lots of lower income/working class people have been forced to move to the suburbs due to the gentrification and displacement that is the direct result of the upzoning and upscale development you champion. And lots of other people move there because they like that so-called (actually thoroughly debunked, which you know, which makes you kind of a liar) "exclusionary" single family zoning. Hate to break it to ya, but most suburbanites don't long to live in dense Seattle neighborhoods. They just don't.

Of course, that being said, if busing were mandatory lots more people would move to the suburbs - including a goodly chunk of the affluent new Seattle residents who have moved here in recent years and are putting their kids in the SPS system. The SSD is indeed the biggest single district in the state, but taken as a whole there are far more kids in the other school districts in King County, and busing would make that a LOT worse (racial equity benefits notwithstanding).

@13,

No, it's a fact. I was here in 1995 (when Sound Move failed at the polls) and in 1996 when it won. Were you?
