Will Seattle really become the next San Francisco?


@sfdragonboy must be happy - less people in the worldclass city.


Well, I am not down there often so I could care less about San Jose. It is crowded when we want some Boiling Crab action though…


What the heck is going on up there, @marcus335???


The “libtards” getting their way…


Property taxes are going up by 17%+ this year. It seems unfair to limit rent increases when property taxes can increase that much. There’s a lot of new apartment inventory coming online in the next few months. One of the constructions sites I walk past every day is now leasing. Two more look like they’ll be ready this summer. These are huge buildings that take up a full block each. I think rents will start to level out some.

“One of the wrinkles in this law is that Portland does not have a lot of data collection built into it.”

This is a huge issue. How else can people know if a policy is actually working? Instead, people will rely on emotions.


Geez, and we thought our Fab 7x7 leadership was draconian…


Housing shortage is nation wide


The city is trying. They want to tax employers with gross revenue above $10M to create $75M in tax revenue to help the homeless. The article covers why it’s a terrible idea.


God, Seattle may be out San Franciscoing San Francisco…



We aren’t SF yet.


Great! That law is major bullshit.


Wow, thanks Judge!!!


It really is becoming like SF.


Move back to SF. You may as well have the real thing.


I honestly hate SF and much prefer the south bay. I never understood the appeal of SF. It’s funny how people here talk about 10,000 sq ft as a huge lot. I’m more leaning towards where I can have at least an acre which is 43,560 sq ft.


That would be Woodside in the woods… be prepared for the $1k monthly gardener charge.


I agree that this law is unconstitutional and should be repealed.

However, these stupid liberals have nothing to be laudable, it’s totally despicable.



Umm, isn’t a bully the one that takes money from others? If a bully tries to take your money and you say no, do you become the bully?


Yeah i prevet at least half an acre. Costs a fortune here :frowning: i want to be able to go for a hike in my yard.
