Massive Amounts of Real Estate in Seattle Unsecured

One IT department in Seattle is having a really bad day.  We received a tip that all of the Martin Selig properties in Seattle are unsecure — pass cards to enter buildings and secure places within the buildings —  and have been for hours.  We called to confirm this but they wouldn’t respond. We tried to call the General Services Administration (GSA), too, and got a voicemail. Why would we call a federal landlord? Because the federal government has leased more than 60 percent of the office space in developer Martin Selig’s  Fifth & Yesler building in downtown Seattle since April 2010. Massive amounts of businesses, government space and non-profits have Selig as a landlord. If you work in one of those buildings, let us  know what you know and what’s happening, because the corporate communicators aren’t talking.
