How do 60,000 new employees affect Seattle?

On February 14th, at Downtown Seattle Association’s (DSA) State of Downtown event, several note-worthy stats were brought to light to paint a picture of Downtown Seattle’s story, since 2010. The driving factor behind the city’s transformation is the demand for more employees; it’s clear that housing is the “traffic jam.”

Reported statistics for Downtown Seattle

2010 – present:

  • 60,000 new jobs were added
  • Population has grown 22%
  • Taxable brick-and-mortar retail sales have increased 34%

2016

  • Downtown businesses contributed $3.2 Billion in local, state, and federal taxes

2017

  • From construction, 3.6 million square feet of space was added above street level
  • 5,725 residential units and 637 hotel rooms were added

Present – 2020

  • 3 million square feet of space will be completed
  • More than 8,700 residential units and 2,400 hotel rooms will be developed
  • Public projects, budgeted around $330 Million are planned or underway

The short version

The takeaway is more people are moving to Downtown Seattle than there are places for them to live. For the majority of Downtown Seattle, the only way to accommodate these new residents is to build upward. Two major concerns that the DSA discussed were homelessness and affordable housing, and traffic. They have not developed a solution, however, there is a 20-year plan called One Center City to develop a solution.

The event discussion was focused on Downtown Seattle (Downtown Seattle area defined by the DSA), but the findings reflect the story of all of Metro Seattle. Without an adequate supply of housing for the thousands of new employees hired per month, it’s not difficult to see how problems can arise. Downtown Seattle has its issues of traffic and congestion that other neighborhoods may not have, but the bottleneck in the story is the amount of available housing. Below is a snapshot of statistics for all of Metro Seattle, telling a similar story. The snapshot is taken from our 2017 Annual + Quarterly (Q4) Report.

Changes and Milestones that You Might Have Missed in 2017

Did you know Seattle broke several records this year? Have you noticed all of the changes happening around you? Did you know if you were looking for this website a year ago, you’d be – – – – out of luck! Do you remember when the whole city turned white and shut down? What is Seattle, without rain? Dry humor.

Breaking Records and Making Changes

Here’s a breakdown of 2017’s big changes and milestones, in Seattle and at the Wall Street Group, that you might have missed while texting.

January

The launch of liveloveownseattle.com.

Envisioned, by the owner of the Wall Street Group, to be a “one-stop shop” for everything that Seattle has to offer, the website has taken off and is grabbing the attention of more than 2,000 people/month. Pretty cool if you ask us. The most viewed pages are the Neighborhood Reports, the blogs, and the LOVE content (obviously, because who isn’t intrigued by LOVE?).


February

Seattle “shuts down

Monday, February 6th, snow swaddled Seattle overnight, closing schools and keeping many people home from work. What a drag that was, huh? Staying home with the family and enjoying a rare snow day. Should we make it a holiday in remembrance of such a rare event? We’ll talk to the Mayor.

 

March

Sun and tulips started creeping back into our lives as we all put on our summer garbs WAY too early.

 

April

Record-breaking month. Record-breaking month. Record-breaking month.

You read that right. Seattle broke 3 records in April.

From October 2016 to April 2017 (because, if we counted every month it rains we’d be cheating) Seattle took on 44.7” of rain, breaking the Rainfall Record from the previous year. That’s deep enough to paddleboard!

As the sky was naturally pouring down on us in copious amounts, didn’t it seem like it was raining every day? Well, almost. For 144 days, between October 2016 and April 2017, Seattle had more than .01 inches of rain. Thus breaking the record for the number of wet days.

In a different awards ceremony, Seattle celebrated the population officially passing 700,000 people. Keep in mind, the official-ness of the count is really more of a very educated, very calculated, and extremely researched guess. This is most likely the best guess we’ll get, as it is provided by the city of Seattle and Washington state, with collaboration with U.S. Census Bureau. (Sorry for all of that. We love data.)

May

The MarketFront was Completed

Pike Place MarketFront project completed in May, but the grand opening was the following month. Keep reading for the excitement

June

Open for business!

The previous owners traded places with our new owner, of Wall Street Group – Windermere Real Estate, in June. A friendly passing of the baton and business is as usual.

Oh right. Pike Place MarketFront opened to the public, too.

 

July

Kusama comes to Seattle at the SAM

Yayoi Kusama, a Japanese contemporary artist who likes to work in sculpture and installations, showed Seattle what an infinity experience might look and feel like.

“Our earth is only one polka dot among a million start in the cosmos. Polka dots are a way to infinity.” – Yayoi Kusama


August

Don’t look at it!

Remember when the earth was going to stop rotating? Or how about when we were all going to turn into zombies? What about the time when we all looked at the Total Solar Eclipse without proper SolarGlasses (made of cardboard)?

Yes, we actually heard those claims. And don’t say you didn’t look at the Eclipse with your bare eyes. We’ve never seen what 9% of the Sun looked like either. (p.s. if you find any typos it’s because our eyes are still recovering)

Dry Humor

Would you believe that Seattle broke 2 rainfall records and in the same year we also claim the driest stretch too? We sure did! For a record-breaking 56 days, Seattle was without its most talked about characteristic, rain.

September

SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS

So, let’s get this out of the way. The Seahawks. First-year missing the postseason since 2011. But we started off strong with 4 wins during the preseason and ending the season over .500. Let’s keep our heads high and let’s hear it in 2018, 12s!

The Mariners. Oh, Mariners. They didn’t make it to the postseason…again…but did you get a chance to check out the homerun food offerings at Safeco Field? Ballard Pizza Co., Great State Burger, and Poquitos! Tempted to buy season tickets for the food. Yumm!

The Sounders had a great season with a 14-11 record, and making it to the MLS Cup finals. Not to mention our 9-year streak of having the best record in the MLS. We’re really looking forward to next season.

Space Needle gets a Spacelift

If you’ve been able to pull your eyes off of your phone for a moment and look up. You’ll notice the Space Needle looks a bit different. That’s because it’s getting a facelift. To be more specific, the safety cage that hinders the view will be replaced with floor to “sky” glass barrier; from the renderings, it looks like the restaurants may be getting fitted with a glass floor.

October

Oktober Fests, scare-athons, and “hello” cold weather again (we had a good run, sun).

November

Giving back and get-togethers

We couldn’t say enough about how much the Wall Street Group Brokers do for the community. All year long, they attend in charity events, roll their sleeves up for community service, and gladly pull their checkbooks out. November is a special time during the year when the staff, owners, and dozens of Brokers come together to help a few organizations.

Every year for last 15 years, our Brokers have offered a hand to help out families in need of a Thanksgiving dinner, with Child Haven, Northwest Harvest Food Drive, and #tacklehomelessness. It’s truly a beautiful time of year.

December

Wrap it up

As we wrapped up a monumental year of changes, experiences, and a dynamic real estate market, we had a few more things to squeeze in. A couple more community events to provide winter clothing and toys to Seattle youth, and one amazing holiday party. Chihuly Garden and Glass hosted the Brokers of Wall Street Group for our Annual Holiday Party, and all we can say is, wow and #blessed. Blessed to have a community of relationships like you to look after one another and grow this wonderful city together.

And there ya have it, the most phenomenal changes and milestones in 2017. Maybe we stretched the meaning of phenomenal and milestones a bit, but they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Either way, 2017 was a great year for us at the Wall Street Group and it was pretty cool to watch all of the changes happen in Seattle.

We are predicting 2018 to be even more phenomenal.

How was your 2017? Any big changes?

Wrapping up a December Full of Winter Memories

Holiday, party, Parties, invitations, invite, fun, cheer, past, present, future, memory, memories, heart, secret, Santa, gift, Eggnog, food, share, brandy, alcohol, drinks, presents, gift, work, frustration, vacation, year, end, summer, nice, warm, December, pure, winter, season, seasonal

Yes, ’tis the season to create some memorable times. Don’t you remember your first glass of Eggnog? Or that one family get-together you can’t stop giggling about?

And, forget about the cold, dark, and short days. December truly is a great time of year. It’s a time of celebration for a year of hard work. A time for gathering with friends and family and sharing each other’s company. A time for passing on traditions to your children and new family members. It’s also a great time to slow down and take a vacation. But you know all of that. Heck, you’ve probably got something planned tonight so, we’ll keep this short.

Take in the celebrations or libations

For those of us that don’t have Festivus to attend later, here are a few ideas, from our team, to get you out of the house and into some holiday fun.


Spend some time at the 
Reindeer Festival
November 11 – December 24

Swanson’s Nursery website reports “[trees] are going fast,” but that shouldn’t stop you from taking the kiddos by to get their photos with Santa and his REAL reindeer. They’ve also scheduled a delightful Cello Concert at 6 pm, on December 21st.


Take in the spectacle and smells of Gingerbread Village
November 21 – January 1

Architects, builders, and culinary teams took to the Graham cracker and various sweets and frostings to create a yummy installation of the future city of Seattle. Viewing hours last nearly all day and night, so there’s no reason you can’t see this amazing dessert display. Stop by and what the city planners and developers envision for Seattle’s future.


Enjoy a holiday classic ballet, 
The Nutcracker
November 24 – December 28

A beautiful story in which a young girl’s favorite Christmas toy comes to life and whisks her away to a magical kingdom.


Take the family to Winterfest
November 24 – January 1 (closed December 25)

Located at Seattle Center, Winterfest is a 5-week long holiday and winter celebration. Fun for the family, including FREE events and performances at the Armory, winter train and village, ice sculptures, and ice skating.


Cheers and Feast
around Seattle

So you’re not into the holiday-specific events. Maybe you just want to find some holiday style meals or drinks, look no further. On any given day, you can find about 2,041,347.134 things to do around Seattle, so we had our friends at The Stranger put this list together for us, for you. (we just searched food and drink events on thestranger.com). Enjoy!

Shop till you drop

Hey, maybe you’re not into any of those things. You could always go shopping downtown if you haven’t yet. Tis the season for deals upon deals.

Whatever you end up doing, bundle up, put on your Cheermeister crown, and enjoy your company. Oh, get your Vitamin-D. It’s important!

 

So, what are you going to do? Big plans?

Another Successful Thanksgiving Food Drive to Support the Families of ChildHaven

For the last 15 years, continued through warm hearts and selflessness, agents of the Wall Street office have had the privilege of providing Thanksgiving groceries to families in need. The organization that makes this possible is ChildHaven, a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1909 to heal families and children and stop the cycle of abuse and neglect.

This year we were humbled to lend a hand to 15 families in need. By providing all of the items necessary to make a wonderful Thanksgiving meal, nearly 140 people (children, parents, grandparents, and aunts and uncles) were able to commune with one another over their truly home-cooked meal.

We would like to give a special thank you to the QFC on lower Queen Anne who helped facilitate the food shopping experience. General Manager, Christopher Randish, Produce Manager, Jeremiah Kelly, and their team made the experience effortless by having items arranged, boxed, and nearly ready to go when we showed up at 8:00 am. Everything went smoothly with their generous help.

We were so grateful to be able to touch the lives of so many families this year and will continue to look forward to the next opportunity to reach out to our community to provide what we can. We also had a lot of fun. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Turn to the Art Scene When Seattle Turns Cold and Grey

Grey Weather in Seattle is a trending topic

We often cruise the cosmic interwebs (e.g. Google trends, Facebook feeds, and news articles) to see what the buzz is, around Seattle. After all, we’re involved in one of the most dynamic real estate markets in the world (currently), and it’s our job to know what people are talking about. Oddly enough, a lot of people are wondering what there is to do during the cold and rainy winter season and how people survive “this weather.” We’ll assume most of the people asking questions like this are Seattle transplants, but we have encountered a few Seattleites sounding a similar request.

The fact is Seattle doesn’t shut down when the weather changes from the beautiful sunny summer to the grey…other season. Actually, quite the opposite. This is when Seattle’s culture gets to shine.

Seattle is a city of Art

See, over the years, Seattle has grown to be a thriving city for the arts community. As early as the 1920’s, Seattle began to emerge as an international arts center. Jazz, Russian ballet performances, painters, and musicians of all kinds began showcasing their talents here. As of January 2011, Seattle was home to 4,571 arts-related businesses employing over 20,000 people. If that’s not compelling enough, Seattle was recently designated by UNESCO, as a City of Literature in the Creative Cities Network. Seattle is the top city in the United States for arts organizations per capita, and our nonprofit arts landscape is the fourth largest in the USA. Needless to say, apart from the booming tech industry as of late, the art culture has always been the major factor in people’s decision to relocate to the Seattle area.

[arve url=”https://vimeo.com/133316594″ title=”Welcome to Seattle City of Literature” description=”Listen to a few of the many literary leaders in Seattle discuss why Seattle is such a literary city and why it would make such a great addition to UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network. ” upload_date=”Monday, July 13, 2015 at 2:52 AM EST” /]

To add to its recent recognition, Seattle’s art scene is amplified by more than 140 theaters, museums, galleries, and arts-related businesses.

Theaters

Museums

Galleries

So, when the warm summer days, hikes with friends, long walks through downtown, and neighborhood festivals are put on hold during the grey season, look to the art scene. There are some hidden gems out there.

Don’t worry if art isn’t your thing

Of course, there are endless things to do in Seattle during the grey season. Are you a beer enthusiast? Would you rather spend your time in coffee shops, by the fire? I bet you’ve always wanted to learn how to play an instrument. What about dusting off those board games that you’ve accumulated over the years? Now is the perfect time self-exploration and indoor stimulation (although rainy hikes are quite liberating, too). What’s your favorite thing to do during the rainy, winter season?

Fall into Some YOU Time

Well Seattle, we made it. It’s October and the fall is upon us. (Wait, is it fall or autumn? Oh…the season with 2 names).

Every year, the fall brings us vibrant colors, cooler weather, Halloween costumes, and a strong desire to take a vacation. You spent nearly every day this year, busting your tail and getting the most out of your day, and now you’re in need of some you time. But, is escaping to a distant location possible with the holidays right around the corner? No, what you need is a local escape. Something to whisk your mind away from the daily grind and let you breathe in the Seattle Area that you’ve grown to love. Luckily, while you were doing what you do best, we did some homework for you.

Seattle has some incredible events, places, and opportunities to escape to during October. And, with Halloween right around the corner, there are some unique opportunities for personal expression. Something that we, too often, forget about.

Halloween Things to Do

Here are some Halloween themed events and activities to help you “escape” – family fun and some over 21 festivities.

Let us know if you’ve heard of an event that we missed!

Falling in LOVE with Seattle

Take a stroll around any Seattle neighborhood. No two neighborhoods are the same. They each have distinct “personalities” that makes them unique. Yet, without each neighborhoods’ quirks and characteristics, Seattle wouldn’t be the beautifully awe-inspiring city that it is.

So, what is it about Seattle that makes it so unique? Why do people gravitate to Seattle? What is it that gets people talking all day and staying up all night? What is it that makes people fall in love with Seattle?

How do you fall in love?

We’ve been tossing around this idea of Seattle’s stimulating senses…join me on this journey really quick.

As you begin to connect and fall in love with someone, you typically excite some powerful senses about them, right? Think about it. Think about your current or last love (try to be positive).

  • Do they have a smell? Maybe their hair smells like roses, their neck smells like fresh cookies, or maybe you can’t get enough of their sweat after an intimate game of “tag.” 😉
  • What do they taste like? Does your mouth salivate at the thought of them?
  • What do they look like? Think more about HOW you see them. Are their eyes like the ocean – deep, powerful, hypnotizing, and mysterious – but no matter what you do, you can’t seem to look away; you drown in them?
  • How do they sound? Does their laugh make you laugh? When they share an intimate secret with you, does nothing else matter? When they sing, does the rest of the world go silent?
  • What do they feel like? Is their silky-smooth skin like the landscape of your dream destination?

Seattle’s Stimulating Senses

Now think about Seattle. Everywhere you go, you’re showered with beautiful sights (e.g. the Space Needle, Chihuly Garden, the Great Wheel) and alluring smells (e.g. food trucks, nature hikes). And depending on the activity, your senses could be amazed with sounds (e.g. Seattle Theater, Pike Place Market, a Seattle Seahawks game), tastes (e.g. any of Seattle’s incredible restaurants, your favorite coffee, your neighborhood Sunday market), and textures (e.g. the SAM, the gum wall, hiking). Seattle’s ability to touch several senses at once helps to solidify that experience in your memory and seduces you to explore further.

Why did YOU fall in love with Seattle?
If you haven’t yet, get out there and explore. Find a place that’ll stimulate your senses. Seattle has enough love for everyone. Cheers.

Check out more ways to fall in love with Seattle.

Creating Zen: In Home and Life

It’s a noisy world out there. In our daily lives, we’re constantly bombarded with instant notifications, emails and phone calls, alarms, construction on every corner, car horns, and all of that city noise to navigate through. The rush and the pressure to keep your footing, in an increasingly hectic atmosphere, certainly bears influence over the state of our homes and our minds.

Hit the pause button. Take back some semblance of calm when your environment’s chatter threatens to blow your proverbial speakers. Cultivating a Zen space for meditation in your home is for YOU and it’s right now (almost).

Creating Space

The easy stuff! This is the mondo fun part where you get to repurpose a section of your home for your greater good.

Choose your space.

Your ideal meditation space should provide maximum privacy and minimal distraction. So, probably not smack dab in the middle of your living room or home office. Choose a quiet spot you can imagine yourself relaxing in. Once you’ve claimed your stake, it’s time to appeal to the senses.

Supply your space according to sight, touch, sound, and smell.

Adorn your Zen space with visuals that are minimalist but meaningful, and help to inspire a sense of calm. Create mood lighting, hang framed photos of botanical scenes or philosophical mantras (anything you find simple and beautiful). These are all great visual cues to set your mind on the right path.

Invest in items that support your body while you meditate. A large comfortable throw pillow or removable couch cushion is a must. Keep soft blankets nearby in the event that your meditation session turns into the perfect nap-portunity (because naps are healing to the mind too, friends).

Provide a meaningful auditory experience. This can be an important component of meditating as well, especially if you’re a novice. Learning to quiet your mind doesn’t necessarily mean that silencing your entire environment is mandatory. While a track of nature sounds or instrumental music can help to fade outside noises to the background, they can also drown out deafening silence which often leads to the bombardment of thoughts. Your chosen auditory ambiance will focus you, and make your mediation session that much more effective.

Aromatherapy. Whether by scented candle or essential oils, aromatherapy aids in reducing and eliminating stress. Not into fragrance? No problem. Unscented candles help to create that mood lighting we talked about earlier. Win, win.

Keep your space sacred.

The most difficult set up to maintain: no technology! With the exception of the device you choose to play your music (or guided meditation app), a ban on technology removes the temptation to check in with social media or work obligations and to check out of your Zen space.

Engaging Space

Now you have a beautiful, serene, and self-made space to achieve peace of mind. As my Designated Broker, John Wellman, always says, “The proof is in the practice”. So make it happ’n, capp’n! Take the time to enjoy your new Zen space, to practice the technique of resting the mind through meditation, and to show off your tricked-out space to all of your friends. As they say, calm inspires calm. And wouldn’t that be lovely?

Need More Guidance?

There is a ton of information out there regarding zen spaces, chi, peace in your life, quite rooms, relaxation, and creating peace of mind. Our recommendation is to pick one reliable source and see what you can get out of that one source. No need to overwhelm yourself looking at 20 different sources on Zen…talk about counterintuitive. We found this article from Yoga International to be just what we were looking for.

The Craziest Way to Get to Know Seattle

Visitors are Coming

We’ve all been here before. It’s the season when friends and family want to visit you in Seattle. The problem is they’re visiting soon…very soon, and we have no idea where to take them or what to show them.

Maybe you’re too new to Seattle that you haven’t found any phenomenally amazing places to show off to your loved ones. Or, maybe you’ve been in the area for a long time, done a fair amount of exploring for yourself, but you don’t think your visitors would be into your favorite spots.

Not to worry, we’ve got the answer.
[Warning, this will turn you into a wild tourist, but it’s only temporary.]

All Aboard the Duck Tour

Wait! Don’t leave. We know this is the quintessential tourist ride frequented by obnoxious quackers and obvious out of towners, and you swore you’d never be caught dead on that thing…but, just hear us out.

Don’t forget, your problem is that you don’t know where and what to show off first. Seattle is a complex city and one type of person could get lost in an entirely different part of the city than another person. The Duck Tour is a fun for all ages and sure fire catch all. Think about it. The tour is a quick 90 minutes. It starts at Seattle Center, which is home base for the Space Needle, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Chihuly Garden and Glass, MoPOP, Pacific Science Center, and tons more attractions, events, eateries, and Seattle life. The Duck takes you and your lovely band of quackers down to Elliot Bay Waterfront, passes the Great Wheel and underneath the “soon to be replaced by Bertha,” Alaskan Way Viaduct. This relaxing cruise puts you in Pioneer Square and alongside Pike Place Market and Westlake Center.

This is where you might get weird looks from people standing/walking in the streets. You’re encouraged to wave and shout at them, they’re part of the tour. Also, for documentation purposes, don’t forget to tell your Seattle friends you’re doing the duck tour, so they can find you and take a great photo of you for social media. 😜

Keep in mind the tour guide, aka Captain, will be playing music, feeding you fun trivia about the artists and why they wrote the song in “that hotel,” and telling all sorts of great stories about Seattle. The Captain might tell you about some great activities coming up, and other awesome places to visit.

Back to the tour. Once you get out of Downtown, the tour takes you across the Fremont Bridge to Fremont and passed Gas Works Park. Here comes the fun part. Your visitor might be wetting their pants at this point because the tour is headed into the water. Right into Lake Union for a casual jaunt around the lake, as the Captain continues his/her commentary on prices of floating homes and owners of the Yachts and other must-know tidbits.

The tour wraps up as it takes you back to home base near Seattle Center.

We’re not getting paid by the Duck Tour. Duck Tour isn’t even the real name. We’re just convinced this is the easiest and craziest way to throw tons of information at your visitor while getting them excited to explore more of the city. Plus, if it completely fails, then the rest of their visit is certain to be amazing because you’ve already set the lowest of expectations.

Let us know if you have better suggestions.
