Parking in SLU

Does anyone have a parking spot for a non compact car they want to rent out in south lake union near amazon Brazil building? I just relocated to Seattle and have been struggling to find a spot near by. Unfortunately I don’t live near any convenient public transportation options or shuttles. Would be appreciative if someone could help or offer useful suggestions. Thanks!

    AMZN doesn't provide free parking? WTAF?

      City doesn't let tech corps build parking downtown. An attempt to reduce traffic by forcing everyone to walk or bus into work. The companies all have shuttle systems, it's like adult school busses lol.

      I honestly don't understand the desire to have a downtown office some tech companies have. A spacious campus in a quiet suburb makes so much more sense imo. Why Salesforce, Twitter and such decided that SF is the place to be while most of their engineers don't even live in the City is puzzling.

      The talent pool is larger and more flexible. Poaching is easier if you don't have to sell relocation. Changing commute is an np hard problem after 4+ yoe

      There's plenty of space in suburbs for companies to be next to each other. Engineers would all love no commute. I think it's stupid they are downtown.

      The talent pool for SF-based companies commutes from all over SFBA (and effin hates it). If you have kids, SF is a horrible place to raise them (because of the school assignment "lottery" covfefe among other things).

    Seattle doesn’t allow it. It’s subsidized though. Facebook is in the same boat afaik

    You should Park it on the street without paying parking....you will receive an average of two tickets a week which will sum up to 80$ in ticket fines,which is cheaper than the parking in the area.
    That should work well as a short term mitigation until the cop identifies you as a serial offender and tags you daily...you have an estimated 2 months before that happens

      Having 5 beaters instead of one decent car seems to be advantageous fer the described strategy. ;)

    There isn't free parking in SLU, but there's many garages along Stewart near the end of the SLU trolley line (like 6th and olive I think). You could park there then just hop on the S.L.U.T., which is a straight shot to your office.
