An efficient waterfront streetcar could be routed up there easily and using its; LINK, Sounder, Bus, Water Taxi, Streetcar, Ferry and Bicycle connections to glide all the way to campus in its own right of way, could help Expedia turn that 50% into a juicy 100.... but I guess that's just not to be...

I think a streetcar extension could make sense, if Expedia was made into the terminus. The area to the north isn't very well positioned.

If a streetcar can jump on the BNSF right-of-way between LQA and Expedia, all the better. It would be a nice stopgap until Ballard-Downtown light rail is built there.

Expedia scales back plans for Seattle campus
By JOURNAL STAFF

SEATTLE — Expedia Inc. is scaling back plans for a new campus on Seattle’s waterfront, potentially saving the online travel firm as much as $600 million in construction costs, Bloomberg reported.

Expedia’s Chief Financial Officer Mark Okerstrom said in an interview with Bloomberg that the Bellevue-based company has decided to take a “modular approach” and build space on the new campus as needed in the coming years, rather than build excess space.

Interbay parcel sells for almost $2M
By JOURNAL STAFF

SEATTLE — The site of the old Captain's Nautical Supplies sold for $1.95 million, according to King County records.

Located at 2500 15th Ave. W., at the dead-end intersection of West Wheeler Street, the 10,500-square-foot site is zoned commercial, though several new apartments have recently been built in Interbay. The property is located along the Metro D Line, opposite the Interbay P-Patch and golf center, and would be served by the planned Sound Transit 3 expansion.
