Roy Lichtenstein's Seattle; Vulcan Unveils Yesler Terrace Plans

Without further ado, we present the latest and greatest real estate news from our sister site, Curbed Seattle.

COOL MAP THING -- Some would say that mapmaking is itself an art-form, but Katie Kowalsky of the University of Wisconsin's Cartography Lab is taking that idea one step further. Kowalsky has translated the entire world into the comic-booky style of Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein, whose work is recognized by its thick, black lines and primary color palette. Naturally, Curbed took a look at what Seattle looks like through Lichtenstein's eyes.

COMING ATTRACTIONS -- Big changes are coming to Yesler Terrace and Vulcan Real Estate is playing a huge part in that. Paul Allen's development company has released early plans for Block 2E and Block 3, two mixed-use complexes that will bring all new residences and retail to the former public housing project, with the hope that many of the neighborhood's residents will be able to stay put after the fact.

RENDERINGS REVEALED -- Skanska's planned office tower at Second Avenue and University Street called 2&U got some new renderings recently that off how the building will fit into Seattle's skyline. The plan continues to call for 700,000 square feet of leasable Class A office space and approximately 15,000 sf of street level retail, plus below grade building services and 500 parking spaces.
