Bloomberg Picks Seattle's Capitol Hill as the Model for How the Pandemic Will Change US Cities



Seems dumb. Capitol Hill will be weird because Amazon is one of the few lockdown winners.


I'm more concerned with the fate of the multitude of half-built apartments, and their astronomical rents.
Will that large apartment complex down the street (in upper Rainier Valley) stil be able to charge $1,800 per month for that 600 square foot studio? (Parking is extra.)
The Pike-Pine corridor is high profile enough that some businesses will occupy those spaces, even at the cost of a tax write-off.
In the less trendy areas of Seattle, that's where I expect to see the real damage.
