Jim Klinger, RIP

Veteran broker Jim Klinger retired from Kidder Mathews several years ago. Prior to the Memorial Day weekend, Puget Sound Business Journal reported this week, he died after a long illness. Klinger is best known, over a long career, for his close work in helping the late Paul Allen and his Vulcan Real Estate amass so many acres in South Lake Union. That effort built on the failed Seattle Commons initiative of the 1990s, leaving Allen with about 11 acres he had intended for a park. By 2008, before Amazon came to SLU, that figure had risen to some 60 acres, most of it now redeveloped. Klinger's survivors include son and KM broker Ross Klinger. In many ways, modern bustling SLU is a monument to both Allen and the late Klinger.
