Amazon and $1.4 billion build a Company Town

by Rachel Baker on October 28, 2013

Quartz.com has a short article (with links) about the money Amazon has spent to turn an area of Seattle into an Amazon Company Town.

Amazon is building a city within a city, a glistening, utopian corporate campus in an area of Seattle known as South Lake Union that was once just dingy warehouses. And thanks to an item in Amazon’s latest quarterly report, we now know how much the company spent on the project on property and construction (which has barely begun) in the past 12 months alone: $1.4 billion.
