Building Community: The Issaquah Chamber of Commerce

In almost every town, community-building starts with its nearest chamber of commerce.  The Issaquah Chamber of Commerce, our local chamber deserves a spotlight for its many efforts.

Megablocks: We fund that too

Last week Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan announced the $143.5 million sale of a city-owned, underutilized area in South Lake Union. The buyer, experienced in supporting spaces for biotech industries, plans on transforming the 2.8 acres of land into a new life sciences campus for biotech or medical research, with many community perks. The transaction would close in early 2020 with construction permitting to follow. Juniper Capital recognizes this is one of last large plots of undeveloped land in Seattle’s SLU tech hub.
