Updated South Lake Union Rezoning Sketch Changes Seattle Skyline

New, 2 comments

Two different times since posting their initial sketches, Seattle's Department of Planning and Development has been taken to task for minimizing the effect of potential rezoning in South Lake Union. Rather than showing off the highest-possible buildings, relatively smaller ones were showcased in drawings. Clever girl, Department of Planning and Development. You almost got away with it.

Above you'll find the new and improved sketch that includes what it might looks like with 400-foot buildings in South Lake Union. Compared to the initial sketch, it makes a big difference. The question is, does the difference bother you?
