Seattle, WA

The Seattle market stands out from other cities in its commitment to sustainability.

The city stands at the forefront of green building initiatives – the Seattle Kraken play on runoff from the arena’s roof – and officials have made plans to become completely carbon neutral within 30 years. As the city itself becomes more expensive to live in, growth has spilled over into neighboring cities like Tacoma and Bellevue. Of the ten largest projects in the state, only two are within the city limits.

Statewide, the outlook is similar. The majority of the population lives west of the Cascades, roughly along a corridor that connects Everett in the North with Vancouver in the South. The area is quite climate-conscious, and much of its infrastructure spending has focused on expanding rail coverage around the Puget Sound.

* Other structures include religious buildings, amusement, government communications, and public recreation projects.
