Seattle condo market is 'what's hitting right now'

Between this year and 2008, 4,481 new condos are to be completed in downtown Seattle and surrounding neighborhoods.

This isn't counting the over 2000 units u/c.

I count about 2,400 units under construction in an area of (guessing) 2,000 acres. That counts rentals in addition to condos.

Stalled First Hill project to restart later this month





Construction is set to begin again soon on the First Hill mixed-use project at Eighth and Madison that was stopped just after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

So First Hill could get four buildings over 10 levels (13, 15, 23, and 27) soon! Not counting the Virginia Mason development.

I wish architects would learn how to round an edge. Everything is so boxy.

^Somone other than me saying it! I don't feel so alone now.
I wonder if they're minimizing the concrete and steel because of cost, requiring boxy designs?

if it's a mall building, rounding off the edges will make it look like something out of the 1960's. I think they're going with more affordable housing than anything else with these smaller projects.

^I agree. It fits capitol hill. It would be different if it was downtown.

I'm reserving judgement on the new Four Seasons Hotel. It would be unfair to arrive at an opinion based on one rather lousy rendering.

Unlike the "old" Seattle Four Seasons - now the Fairmont - which was very traditional elegant - Italianate, lots of frippery, frills and gu-ga - the developers of the new FS are going for a more "zen" feel to the hotel - Asian "minimalist" if you like - clean lines, modern, hip and hushed - very different from what one normally thinks of a Four Seasons Hotel.

Seattle being a gateway city to Asia - this makes good sense, in my opinion. Time will tell if the execution of the "zen" feel of the new hotel is done properly.

Anyone with the ability and free time willing to make a rendering of how all of these new projects will look on the skyline (like from W. Seattle, Queen Anne, etc.) once finished? I'm rather curious to see how these will potentially fill in once completed.
