Seattle Aims To Downsize Living Spaces

Developers in Seattle have been leading the U.S. in building hundreds of tiny apartments to cater to solo young workers, retirees who prefer city living, students and others looking to downsize.

Study: Modest Tolling Would Still Clog Downtown Seattle

A state study suggests that even a modest toll would result in traffic diverting away from a tunnel on the Seattle waterfront onto city streets. But the state could meet the $200 million it is contributing to the $3.2 billion replacement project for the aging, earthquake-vulnerable viaduct. The tolls would also pay for maintenance.
