http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnology/2011510660_sundaybuzz04.html this was from a few days ago but I didn't see it here. So after a year, not one condo at the Thornton Place development near Northgate has sold, partly due to the recession and partly due to settling of a lot of the units. However, 94% of the apartments are leased! And while just a quarter of retail space is leased, that retail is doing really well. Also, I have noticed the movie theater is doing very well, so maybe with all the extra people around there, more retailers will be convinced to open at Thornton Place.
