The City has just launched an online mapping tool that makes it easy to find construction permits anywhere in Seattle.
The Seattle Department of Construction & Inspections (SDCI) launched the mapping tool—called Shaping Seattle: Property & Building Activity—which is an interactive map that allows users to find active construction and land use permits and proposals subject to Design Review in each neighborhood.
Hovering over Ballard shows a dizzying amount of construction proposals, ranging from apartment projects to townhouse construction and building modifications.
Each dot on the map has a detailed page that provides key information including information such as project images, descriptions, project milestones, links to related documents, and public comment options for land use projects. SDCI optimized the map for mobile use, so you can view nearby projects based on your current location.
Here’s a link to the map tool, which is updated regularly with new projects and proposals.
