Density Plague Infests Bellevue


[ A lunch I had in Bellevue last weekend to celebrate a rare visit to the Eastside. After I ordered one Big Mac, the guy working behind the counter asked if I wanted two for the price of one, and I said, “are you offering me a free Big Mac?” and he said yes, so I couldn’t say no. And then I ordered an apple pie and he said, “do you want two for a dollar?” and I thought, man that’s pretty cheap, so I said “sure” even though I didn’t, and still don’t know how much one pie costs — 50 cents perhaps? How mindlessly easy it was to end up with an absurd amount of bad food on my tray. “I’m Lovin’ It!” ]

For your analytical indulgence, some Bellevue data to contemplate in perspective with the number of new housing units in the Denny Way corridor noted here (2680), and the number of new apartment units in downtown Seattle noted here (3217):

Downtown Bellevue has 3200 housing units currently under construction, and another 2000 in the planning stages. By 2020 the downtown Bellevue population is projected to almost triple, growing from today’s 5000, to 14000. Go edge-city!

But of course not all Bellevue downtowners are pleased about all that growth. One neighbor had this to say: “Don’t let people move downtown. I don’t want it to turn bad.” I wish I was funny enough to have made that up.
