SLU – New Tech Hub?

By on September 5, 2007 in Real Estate, South Lake Union Condos with 5 Comments

westlake terryBoth the Seattle PI and Seattle Times are reporting that Microsoft will be making an announcement tomorrow about expanding to the South Lake Union district in Seattle. And, both say, to fill an immediate need, Microsoft may lease space in the Westlake/Terry Building, which houses the new corporate headquarters for Group Health.

Rumor also has it that another major Seattle-based technology (retail) company may take up significant office space in South Lake Union area.

Over a million square feet of office space in SLU could potentially be home to the region’s thriving technology firms. This is excellent news for Vulcan’s SLU condo projects and for the massive redevelopment of the area.

    Welcome Microsoft!

  2. Josh Good says:

    I heard they were considering Pioneer Square as a possible location, did you see that anywhere?

  3. Ben_Kakimoto says:

    I hadn’t heard about Pioneer Square, but Microsoft did lease about 100,000 square feet in the Westlake/Terry Building. But, that’s nothing compared to what Amazon may require in the SLU area….I’ve heard up to a million square feet.

  4. newbuyer says:

    That’s a lot of space. I wonder where they would be in SLU? Things seem to really be happening around there.

  5. Loren Hardman says:

    Microsoft did announce that they were moving into 2 locations in the Pioneer Square. Both 111 S. Jackson and 505 Union Station according to the Seattle Times.
