Amazon Continues to Grow

Seattle’s skyline is changing rapidly with the addition of many high rise buildings, to change things up a bit Amazon built the “ SPHERES”.

The Amazon Spheres are built out of glass and metal and they are intended to provide a nature like setting for Amazon employees to have spaces to think outside the box ( cubicles). One has to be an Amazon employee to actually visit the spheres but Amazon has opened a visitor center called the Understory that gives people a chance to see inside the design of the spheres. The Understory visitor center is open Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 8 pm and Sundays from 11 am to 7 pm, admission is free and most times you don’t need a reservation but as the weather gets warmer and more visitors come to Seattle it will be a good idea to make a reservation at Visit Understory The Spheres are located at the corner of Lenora Street between 6th and 7th Avenues.

While you are there you may want to get some food at the Amazon Go store which is located right next door to the Spheres! It’s Amazon’s cashless/cashierless store. To go inside one must download the amazon go app. It’s more of a deli style store and is prices are competitive to other grocery stores. It’s open Monday through Friday 7 am to 9 pm
