New web app Seattle in Progress tracks development in Seattle neighborhoods
It's impossible to miss the ever-growing number of buildings that seem to pop up every week in Seattle. If you're curious about developments happening in your own neighborhood, there's an app for that! Seattle in Progress is an interactive mobile web app that Seattle residents can use to find information on local land use and building design plans.
The app, launched last fall, presents the building design information about planned buildings going up all around the city. Users can view images of the building’s final design, read about the site’s topography and features, and find out information about specific zoning regulations in a site’s neighborhood.
In their own words, Seattle in Progress is "a modern alternative to the 'notice of proposed land use' boards currently posted at construction sites."
Users can choose to receive email updates about specific projects through the app or even get a daily notification about all projects happening in the city of Seattle.
