Am I the only one that things all the new stuff in columbia city looks like Issaquah? If I wanted to live in a shitty suburb, I'd just go live in a shitty suburb.

Also people put what.. 3, 4% into their 401K and then complain they don't have enough to retire on. No shit you don't...

the pension plan doesn't accrue anything. you're employer is supposed to guarantee it, but they don't have to keep their word. see: every state with a republican governor that runs into financial problems. With a 401K it's your money, you can buy an index fund that'll be the same thing the pension fund is invested in.

@8 I'm thinking this will end up like belltown - low income housing & $2k/month apartments in a non-family friendly neighborhood. No where for people in the middle to live and a terrible place to raise kids.
