Here’s another update on the Seattle Bubble interactive stalled / slow development map.
In the month and a half since the launch of the map, readers have contributed 76 stalled and/or slowed residential developments in the greater Seattle area. The Bothell area still has the largest representation, and even months after starting the map, I still spot a new one that hasn’t been mapped yet every week or two.
Again, anyone can contribute to this map, just load it up in Google and add the stalled / slowed residential construction sites (SFH or condo) near you. Below is the current stalled development map. Please feel free to continue contributing new locations and improving the data, especially if you live in an area with currently spotty coverage.

What amuses me is that there are still people out there claiming that we will be facing a housing shortage in just a year or two. I wonder if Todd Britsch (of Bothell-based New Home Trends) is still holding to his 2008 prediction that “Seattle is headed for a serious shortage that could bring a return to double-digit price appreciation starting in 2012.”
