Seattle Leads the Country in Tower Cranes

|

While most cities across the nation have seen a decline in construction projects and the number of cranes erected across the cityscape since 2015, the city of Seattle’s crane numbers continue to grow according to the RBL Crane Index, a publication by Rider Levitt Bucknall. Seattle once again leads the nation in the number of active cranes, with 62 at the year’s end. The publication noted that cranes for new projects quickly replace any that are removed on completed projects. Over half the cranes are for residential multi-family construction, which is currently at a ten year high, according to the index. Other sources indicate that there were more apartments completed in the Seattle metro area during 2016 than in any other year since 2000. Get the full article here.
