PSBJ Launches Crane Watch, Tracking Seattle’s Building Boom
A quick post to share with you guys about a new mapping service that the Puget Sound Business Journal is rolling out. They are referring to it as their Puget Sound Crane Watch. A sign of the times for Seattle during a robust period of growth and high-rise development. According to the Downtown Seattle Association (of which we are members), there are more than 18,000 residential units planned or under construction during the next 3 years.
According to announcement by the Journal (referencing the impact of all the current development projects):
“…… real estate development and operations supported 43,130 jobs in Washington and contributed $6.3 billion to the state’s gross domestic product. The industry paid out $2.1 billion in wages and salaries to Washington workers.”
