“Bosa Development abruptly stopped working last summer on its full-block condominium project in downtown Seattle. That high-rise plan remains a partially excavated pit. Now, over in Bellevue, there are new signs of life for its comparatively smaller 21-story, 142-unit condo project at 201 Bellevue Way N.E. That’s immediately east of Bellevue Downtown Park.”

“Ahead of tonight’s opening day game, the Seattle Mariners will debut a new indoor/outdoor events space across the street from T-Mobile Park at 1201 First Ave. S. The 9,500-square-foot venue, called Victory Hall, was announced in February and is located inside a historic warehouse that the team is developing into an entertainment and dining destination called The Boxyard. The warehouse was last occupied by Pyramid Brewery, which vacated in spring 2020.”
