Michael Ackerman, a Seattle Realtor with Coldwell Banker Bain, blogs about being aware of the fact that if you purchase a view condo in the downtown core neighborhood, you may or may not retain that existing view. The Seattle Times printed an article (http://seattletimes.com/html/businesstechnology/2019061484_hotelboom04.html) about the possibility that as many as 8 new hotels (or hotel/apartments) may be built in the downtown area in the next few years. If you are purchasing in 1521, Escala or Olive 8, your view could be impacted. There are very few areas in Seattle where your view is protected so do your due diligence when purchasing!
