The economic impact of COVID-19 pandemic on Seattle

"Cast your mind back. I remember talking with you soon after the pandemic started. And you were describing looking out of your window and seeing hardly anybody on the street where what. He's seeing right now today. Well we have more activity than that there. There are some office. Workers are back that are back of course essential workers. There are things that are open today that we're not open a month ago. Museums like the seattle art museum and wing luke The pike place market has been just a great bright spot through all of this. They've never closed. They've had to adjust plenty. So that's a note of activity and usually it's a lot of tourists there. It's mostly locals that are coming from other neighborhoods in seattle downtown. So there's activity downtown. But we sure want more genders more activity but still i mean. The pandemic did take a major toll on downtown businesses. Can you give us a nutshell. Just what happened over the last year. Yes we all know. Downtowns are all about bringing people together and in a pandemic to stay apart for good reason so this pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on urban areas in our country and downtown seattle. Certainly and so. We've had one hundred sixty small businesses that have permanently closer restaurants and retailers office. Occupancy has been below twenty percent over the last couple of months of folks who are showing up at least a few days in their office during the week. Hotel occupancy is still hovering at twenty percent or below in some weeks and our major venues arts culture performance live music venues have have been shuttered for the most part throughout this period so this has been devastating economically to our downtown into downtown's across the country because when you're all about bringing people together a pandemic has significant impact on on how you function and that's what we've seen john. We are still dealing with this pandemic. we haven't turned a corner quite yet but it does seem that most adults who want a vaccine will be able to get one in the next few months. What could that mean for. The future of downtown really is a game changer and we. We have such a clear line of sight on the pace of vaccinations and win. A majority of adults in our community are going to be vaccinated because of the recent approval of the johnson and johnson vaccine. So it's going to allow office workers to return at some level here Early in the summer late spring. We're talking to employers and companies that are that are making those plans now and it's going allow for leisure travel to resume at higher levels throughout our country in seattle can compete really well for the domestic leisure travel business which we believe is going to be sort of the first type travel to return likely before business travel and likely before international travel. People are dying to get out. We want him to come to seattle so office. Workers in leisure travelers and the seattle. That maybe hasn't been downtown in the last year. We want to invite them back. There's plenty of that is open today and more to come. So that's where we're focused. Some folks are speculating. That this pandemic has forever changed. The nature of work and that many employees may simply work from home indefinitely which could mean way fewer people shopping and dining downtown. Are you worried about that potential shift. I do believe the office and work does get recalibrated but the office isn't going away by any means but it mean that some folks might work from home owners days a week. That's generally what the research in surveys. Both in our own community around the country are saying so. The office in the downtown still has an important role to play. When it comes to work and collaboration in shaping a company an organization's culture i do think it gets a re recalibrated doubt. So recalibrate it. If you've got fewer workers around who else possibly could be drawn down to the core to to kind of make up for the for the flow of energy that used to be there. We'll we're investing still record levels in in housing in downtown so more than seven thousand. Units of housing are currently under construction. Were connecting our city to downtown in ways that are going to help people to take a train from northgate in just a few months. That comes every couple of minutes right into downtown. So there's there's new ways to get downtown. We're significantly in housing. And then we're investing in generational infrastructure projects like the waterfront park and a great new arena seattle center. So there's going to be new things to see inexperienced downtown that weren't here prior to this pandemic and there's going to be lots of new businesses that come in into spaces that were vacated by businesses that had to close through this pandemic so this plenty to look forward to new investments new experiences that we're not here prior to this pandemic and we want to celebrate those in addition to everybody that made it through this pandemic and that's able to reopen. Is there a scenario where you might see that. The downtown doesn't recover. And what would that look like. And what would that mean. There's a lot at risk here. And i don't think we can take anything for granted and every great city has a great downtown. I haven't been to a great city without a thriving core in as a as a city here in seattle in a community. We we've made a big bet on a healthy thriving downtown. We've passed many levies to invest in families and education universal pre-k low income housing and a great park system that is betting on a healthy economically. Vital downtown so we have a lot at stake on what happens on these three square miles of land for the entire city and really the entire region. So we've got to get this writing. We can take nothing for granted.

Rite Aid buys 130-year-old Seattle-based Bartell Drugs chain for $95 million

"Bad Week for Seattle icons poor went out for bartell man Seattle based drug store announced earlier this week, it was purchased by rite aid bartels around of course, since eighteen ninety back to the Yukon gold rush days, canoe. This is one of the oldest companies in Washington, and this is the stuff that hits me hard. It's the kind of change that I really don't like and I'm not even a native. Are you sad about this? I. Am I mean I think it's amazing that family could keep keep any business together from eighteen, ninety, two, twenty, twenty that's a pretty good run. I think people just don't like the the decline of local miss. In some of our institutions bartels always had a very distinct personality they used to. You know there was a a favorite triangle building down at West Lake that had a Great Soda Fountain in a restaurant upstairs and You know people like going bartels fruit. Christmas candy as well as medicines I went looked at some old bartels ads they. Attempted to be good citizens during previous crises, they were selling ways to sterilize your masks during the nineteen, eighteen endemic and things like that. So you know people feel sorta bonded with that and rite aid is faceless chain. So I was surprised because I commented twitter when I heard about it and I was amazed the response people are really not happy about it. Sean Bar Taylor. Now you're gonNA miss it. Yeah. I'm GONNA MISS IT A lot. It's a I think a really a kind of just a sign of. The Times in a lot of ways I mean when I Was a freshman at the University of Washington once upon a time. I really remember orienting myself quite a bit using that that sign that they had out on the corner of forty fifth in the APP. You know the time that lets you know the temperature and I think you know the the the economic climate right now I think was really indicated by you know a small business closure like that which was really really unfortunate. It's a difficult time and these are reminders that. You know those local chains they're not a sustainable and bartell even said at themselves this pandemic made it really difficult for us. And featured local products right like Almond Roca and applets in cutlets which I think are awful but. That's okay. Just tweeted me. Probably. The most controversial thing that's been said on this podcast so far. We cover up to this point within the fly between Kobe between trump i. really think this is going to be the thing that's going to land you in hot water on on social networking I'm GonNa get mail. And the other thing that's leaving again, a heartbreak, the elephant car wash is going to close that awesome sign. It's probably going to go live at Mohi, that big pink elephant giving itself a bath with its trunk. Is. It sad that we have to go to see this pink Elephant Museum, Canoe. Yeah, it will be if if if they can fit it in the door, right You know, I mean Mohi, has become the place that saves are signs. You know whether it's the rainier beer signed or the old tow truck or or whatever. You were probably due to have some sort of A. Part that part near Mohi turned into some kind of outdoor signed? My Gosh. It's going to be weary on czar neon park. It would be cool. You. Know I drive by Before the pandemic I was driving by the pink elephants signed almost. Almost every day and I use the car wash. It was really convenient working down near Seattle Center. But even it was so hard to get to I. Mean I think they're factors is on a weird piece of property with all the construction down there. It's hard to figure out how to get in there because it's one way Stinson things are blocked off. I think I, felt like I. Think I wrote a piece like several years ago. This pig elephant is doomed because of all development here. So. I've been sort of surprises lasted as long But I hate to see it go everybody loves that thing you you from Seattle? That's how you give people directions. You know you say you go down Denney Then when you get to that pink elephant sign, you turn less you know. Right and we need landmarks like that to help us get around especially since the cities looking so homogenized legally. Well. Yeah, you can't really say we'll drive down to that Amazon Tower. One of ten Amazon Towers looked identical and you'll think you're in bellevue but you know. Yeah. Doesn't work as well. Sean, what do you think? Well, I think it's it's a you know it's fitting. We were talking earlier about sort of the increasingly wayward direction of the Republican Party the GOP whose symbol is the elephant, and now we ask the actual physical displacement perhaps the best known elephant in. In the city of Seattle. So bad bad year for the Republicans we'll see how a number turns out if we can turn this thing around for elephants everywhere. Here.

Millennials heat up Seattle housing market

Millennials heat up Seattle housing market

"We've all had a lot more time to assess our living situation since the pandemic and it seems a lot of people are making the move to homeownership but that doesn't mean it's gotten more affordable. In fact, Seattle's real estate market is hotter than ever. We've got the fastest rising house prices of any city in the country after Phoenix prices here jumped seven percent in July since last year despite the pandemic Catherine Shema belong is a real estate reporter at the Seattle Times she's here to explain hi Catherine. Hi Trish. Thanks for having me. It's good to talk to you again. The heat in the real estate market here is surprising to me given what I keep hearing about the economy were you surprised Oh Yeah I was floored I think it's counterintuitive to a lot of people as hundreds of thousands of Washingtonians. Lose their jobs that home prices would continue to go up. Yeah and where is the growth the market coming from this time around? What are people doing here? Well. That's another thing that's really surprising A lot of the growth is coming from first time homebuyers specifically millennials people who aren't normally interested in buying homes but we're in this sort of perfect storm where it's cheaper than it's ever been to own a house because mortgage rates are historically low that's incentivizing a lot of people who might not normally have started their house search to get on the market. It's also incentivizing people who already own homes who might have sold them to hold onto them to refinance to take some cash out of their homes maybe a to better weather what's coming in the pandemic? But inventories. So number of homes that are on the market is very low lower than it's been by some counts in two decades. Simultaneously Demand just keeps ticking up that is a formula for rising house prices right there high demand low inventory, but I want to break this down just a little bit because from what I understand about millennials right? They don't have a ton of money. They are first time homebuyers. About getting into a market where the median home price is around seven, hundred thousand dollars are the overextending themselves. Well, most growth that we're seeing it actually concentrated in the more affordable end of the market. So homes in the Seattle Center prices are going up, but they're more or less where they were about a year ago homes in places like Tacoma Lake Taps Auburn up north in snohomish county. That's where prices are really writing. We're seeing price growth in the double digits for homes that are less than four, hundred, sixty, thousand dollars. That's for the millennials are buying their homes and and that's really affecting affordability for a lot of people in the Seattle Area That's still an awful lot of money to break into a market I. Think if you live in the Seattle area, you just get used to seeing incredibly high housing costs. But again, when a millennial enters into an agreement to buy this large large purchase, are they banking at this point on a market that's going to continue to grow because I've been around long enough that I saw people get underwater really quickly when the market didn't pan out the. Way They thought it was going to a lot of experts that I've talked to think that Seattle's market is destined to keep growing maybe not at the scorching pace that we're seeing right now. But Seattle like San Francisco is afflicted with what we call the curse of the superstar city. There's so much wealth concentrated in industries like the Tech Industry for instance, and that really drives up housing prices that wealth those incomes they're out of set in some. With the cost of living for the rest of the people who live in the Seattle area. You also reported Catherine that people are leaving their apartments in troves. What's driving that? Things are driving that one. We've already talked about the low mortgage rates that's really pulling people out of their apartments but I talked to a couple a couple months ago who said they're both working from home and they said they were just getting sick and tired of stepping all over each other during the day. One of them's working in the bedroom. One of them's working in the living room and they were sharing a bell an apartment, and me just really wanted to see some green. They ended up moving to manage quality of life. They're getting a little more quality of life what about people though who can't get into the market right now? Is there an advantage to renting since so many people are leaving their apartments. There is an advantage to renting. We're seeing that rents in the Seattle area have dropped by nearly ten percent since the start of the pandemic, and that's not even counting the discounts that landlords property managers are offering attendance. Some of them are offering as much as two months free rent. Those are big savings right now. So if you can find an apartment, Dow was a good time to sign a lease, but there are some real. Losers from the current growth even a mortgage rates are lower than they've been any time ever. The ability of people to get a mortgage has become more constricted ben anytime in the past six years, we look at something called the mortgage credit availability index, and that's lower than it has been since March twenty fourteen. What that means is that it's harder for people who don't have corporate credit to get a mortgage and we know that. Black Americans Americans of color are disproportionately likely to have lower credit scores than their white counterparts. What that means is harder for black. Americans. To afford a home now and West before the pandemic right banks are much less willing to give money away at this point to people who don't have perfect credit, which really really leaves a lot of people especially in the Seattle area where it is really hard to live out in the cold. Here do you think that there is a tipping point for the Seattle market where home affordability just becomes too much and people end up like just packing up for the suburbs or for a different state because like I said, we see these housing prices in this area and I look in other parts of the country and I think oh my gosh you know I could do a lot better for myself. I think the answer is yes. Then, it started I realized that I could afford to rent a larger home outside of the city packed up and moved in our north. I think that the pandemic is giving a lot of people the chance to reassess whether living that being said I don't necessarily see price growth slowing down appreciably in Seattle in the near future. We just have so many people with so much wealth in the city and the wealth and poverty gap here are just getting wider. It's becoming more and more obvious that the line between making it and. Not Making it is pretty thin here. What about people who aren't rocking a tech salary in this city? What is the other side of the picture for them? The other side of the picture is getting forced out of neighborhoods they've lived in for a long time because they can't afford riding property taxes and moving out into south King County, Pierce County, snohomish county, or even further outside of the Seattle area. The last time we talked you were downtown in billtown looking out at a pretty empty city Catherine where are you living these days? These days I'm I'm way up north I'm actually Skagit County. Where I can have a house with a yard and a new puppy. So you are an example of what's going on in the city. You're not just a reporter live the life. That's right. I know it's happening because I live it. Catherine Shema belong excellent to talk to you. Thanks so much for your time. Thank you, Victor.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, aka 'Notorious RBG,' was an unparalleled cultural icon

"Ruth Bader Ginsburg, dubbed in later years, the notorious RBG was the second woman ever to serve on the Supreme Court began her tenure in 1993 President Bill Clinton. Appointed her before that she had a celebrated career as an attorney fighting for equal rights for women. She eventually became a cultural icon for women and Americans of all generations. Lots of local reaction to the death of Ginsberg as of yesterday, one of our former law clerks now sharing a profound impact. Civil rights champion had on her own life and career. For this we go to Komal is Joel Marino small and simple gesture for an icon of the legal community. As people gathered the Seattle center toe honor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, she really wanted to ensure that every American heavy equal rights viewed by many as the legal architect of the civil rights movement. In 2002. Ginsburg took on a young and aspiring law clerk who is now a professor at the University of Washington. I feel like I couldn't really hoped for much better of a life in the life that she designed and lived. Elizabeth Porter was there is landmark opinions were forged on same sex rites and affirmative action cases. The experience would shape our own understanding of life. The law in the fight for equality that continues to this day. This is a political tragedy for the country, In my view, were deeply polarized place and we're losing an important steadying voice. Ginsberg herself faced discrimination coming out of law school and turned that into a lifelong quest for equality for all Americans. I think she wass absolutely the best sort of patriot. Aside from a storied career, Porter says Ginsberg loved art and music and was surrounded by people She loved. I can celebrate a beautiful Joyous life well lived. Whatever happens next, Professor Porter says she hopes the legitimacy of the Supreme Court doesn't get dragged down by political scheming in the upcoming appointment process. Now Coleman's Molly Shen reading Governor, Jay Anjali statement on Ginsberg's death, saying, We lost one of the greatest American Patriots to ever serve on the U. S. Supreme Court. Until he went on to say Justice. Ginsburg was a public servant who kept America true to its purpose. She never shied away from vigorously dissenting when the court set back the course of justice. Anjali is among the dozens of politicians and celebrities taking to social media to mourn Justice Ginsburg. They also include former President Bill Clinton, who appointed her.

threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna

The city of Seattle and King County have made provisions to keep people warm hundred spent the night at the exhibition center at Seattle center of seeing that will likely repeat itself tonight.

They broke through the ice themselves. She was standing on a log police chief Michael on board used his swiftwater geared to help him get in safely and pull her out. Typically. People aren't used to it. And just don't recognize the fact that is not going to be as thick as it might be in the mid west or something like that. So. Get people to stay off the ice and keep themselves safe. Keep us safe. So we don't have to go out to it's a little cold the girl and her dog ended up just cold and wet otherwise. Okay..

"Viaduct completely shut down at highway ninety nine closed through downtown Seattle. And so far so good. No major incidents to report. And komo's Joel Moreno says the consensus is that the trip into Seattle could have been worse. Whether it was by carpool buff, even bicycle people. Got around this week without driving solo can be careful this time because I know that the commutes an issue still public transit options have some pitfalls. Fly more patriots. Some avoided tripton into town entirely without the viaduct which up the rest of us. I drive older people to doctors appointments, and I chose not to we cancelled the doctor's appointment that was downtown not everybody switch it up. But even they saw the benefits dig up Denver for work on Wednesday. And it was very better. That's been by cheer companies reported steady business and more people cycled in general city officials say more than thirteen hundred people pedaled out a west Seattle on Wednesday. That's more than twice the number recycled a worker school that same day a year ago. So can we keep it up for two more weeks? Domke thing and. We'll see what happens.

"Commuters continue to adjust their routines and schedules. Vetere buses are seeing buses Philip earlier, the west Seattle water taxi also saw triple the number the normal number of riders this morning, more than nine hundred at the service still has reached capacity. We want to give you an early heads up to expect more foot traffic during the Seattle squeeze this weekend, the annual women's March and rally is this Saturday morning at Cal Anderson park and Capitol Hill that March begins at nine forty five runs down pine and then up fourth avenue ending at Seattle center. Metro and sound transit will provide extra buses and light rail trains, but riders should expect significant delays before during and after the March now to our poll question if the Seattle squeeze changed your commuting routine. Will you keep it up after the new tunnel opens? You can vote right now on his Facebook page. We'll have the results for you a little bit later in the newscast. The controversial Seattle. Streetcar expansion is getting the green light from mayor Jenny Dirk. But some taxpayers concerned the price tag for the project now stands at two hundred eighty six million dollars. That's eighty eight million more than projections. Just two years ago.
