Seattle Skyscraper Projects Infographic – June 2015


Several large buildings are being proposed, under construction, or recently completed in Seattle, adding homes, offices, stores, parking, and more to meet demand. Featured in this infographic are building projects in Seattle which include skyscrapers at least 250’ tall.


45 current projects are featured in this infographic, and an additional 2 projects are included in the map and table but do not have adequate information to be included with the other projects.

The infographic was created using data from different architect, developer, government, and news websites, with much of the information coming from design review documents from the City of Seattle.

The minimum height threshold was increased from 200′ to 250′, due to some buildings close to 200′ not fitting common definitions of a skyscraper, such as having a larger height than width.
