Downtown Seattle Condo Pipeline Map

Here is an excerpt from the Puget Sound Business Jouranl: Seattle’s condo pipeline expected to dry up.

Midby (principle of Lexas Companies) said the drop-off in the number of condos available will drive up the price, penalizing the picky buyer. “The ones that are milling around are going to have to grab a seat or they’re not going to get the product they want,” he said. “We know there’s going to be a lot of scarcity between now and then.”

Between now and 2013, Seattle buyers will be crossing their fingers that all 6,255 homes will be built and banks loosen up on financing of new construction. Over half of the new projects that have yet to break ground have yet to get financing approved. Buyers themselves will also see some difficulty in getting loans due to the credit crunch.

    I believe that Olive 8 should probably be moved to 2009. According to some news awhile back the hotel will open Dec 2008 but the condos wont start move-ins until 2009 to finish around May 2009.

    Great blog btw!!
