Ever wish you had a crystal ball to see what that vacant lot near your condo might be someday? It’s not a true crystal ball, but it’s close: www.seattleinprogress.com.
If you are thinking about selling your condo or buying one here in Seattle, potential development near your building can have an effect on both current market value as well as future market value. Not to mention just knowing what is coming is valuable information. For example, will there be new retail or a new grouping of townhomes that will gobble up a bunch of street parking near your condo? Will there be a new building that will block your current view?
But with so many new construction developments, how can the average person keep up and more importantly keep informed? Just today when driving down Lakeview over the I-5 overpass, Loren and I counted 17 construction cranes towering over the city, just in the South Lake Union and Denny Triangle area alone! There are cranes in Ballard, on Capitol Hill, in Roosevelt, you name it. And those are just the cranes you can see now. But what about if you could see into the future, even before a crane or construction trailer hits the site? Well you can now, sort of.
