Will Seattle really become the next San Francisco?


I’m not surprised. There are quite a few new buildings where I’m at and none are full yet. Free parking seems to be the most common freebie. I’ve seen some offering 4-6 weeks free rent on a 1-year lease.


I have seen a few apartment building in San Jose did that when they were brand new. Need to fill them up as quickly as possible then it stablizes after the initial push.


The socliast council member who says housing is too expensive wants to block a housing project.

That’s very SF.


Def sounds like something we would do down here…


Seattle can never escape its weather
Lots of rain this week even at the ski resort.


If only there was a way to transport all that excess H2O down to Cali. We need a water pipeline!!!


Yeah, that’ll only cost $200B to build. Cheaper to build desalinization plants.


With the way it is going, desalinization plants are in our future down here…


LA should worry the most first, if anything. And let’s not forget about Phoenix.


Pipelines are cheaper than that. The country has thousands of oil pipelines. The CA aqueduct cost much less.


Worse comes to worst, can transfer water from Great Lakes to CA then… :rofl:


I was shocked at the SF number. It must be office space. There’s no way that much housing is being built.


Cranes dont mean that much…Lowrise buildings in less dense cities dont need cranes.



It gives you an idea of how much tech is in Seattle. Some are founded here and others just have offices here. I was honestly surprised at how many tech companies are here.
