Seattle continues to be in the midst of a development boom. The Downtown Seattle Association (DSA) recently released their guide measuring this and reporting on 2016 development activity.

You can get the full report online from the Downtown Seattle Association website. At Mutual Materials we are focused on serving and supporting our local architecture design and construction industries.  As a local Pacific Northwest family-owned business, we are very proud to see our natural brick, concrete masonry, and hardscape products being built into our city’s new residential urban living, office, and other modern development projects.

  • Seattle continues to see record development and in 2016 set records for construction activity across residential, office and hotel development segments. Residential development—particularly apartments—was very strong and is expected to continue into 2017 with about 6,000 new urban living units expected to be constructed.


  • New office space also remains a robust segment, with nearly 12 million square feet of new office space expected between now and the end of 2019. To put this into perspective, this is about the same amount of space added over the previous 12 years combined, tripling the overall pace of office development downtown.
