    I understand a little about available properties to build, but do they have to build every super-tall-tower in the same block?

    It seems like every new development I read about is right next to another one (or a large commercial building).

    Seems lame. I wouldn’t buy on the east side of Escala, for example, if those two ridiculously tall towers are gonna be built there in a couple of years.

    Why not make use of spacier confines (at least for now). We’re probably 20 years away from having so many residents downtown that we need to cram our skyscrapers right next to each other like that.

    I thought that because of the slowing housing market, nothing was moving forward.. Can someone tell me why these projects are any different?

    Entitlement is relatively cheap and allows you to market and effectively sell the whole project to other funds/developers as a turn-key. Housing market in Seattle isn’t really slowing down compartively. Also if you want to hit the upswing -you need to be entitling and complete the project when the market is hot versus under construction and selling when the market is cool (Escala).

    Cricket your rationale is so weak I’m not going to respond.
