whats striking is that the streetcar corridors of Seattle could be seriously bulked up. eg California ave as I mentioned.

is development just too fraught and NIMBY-opposed in the suburbs to make it worthwhile, especially since downtown still has ample land to build highrises as well as the right zoning?

Much of California Ave is turning into six-story apartments. But aside from a couple core spots it's only along the street itself.

West Seattle Junction, the main core on California Ave, has gotten at least 1,500 housing units in recent years. It still needs to grow more, but it feels like it's getting a critical mass as a third-tier node.
