Arcade has a great visual looking at demolition permits:

Rather than focusing on the city’s growth, the [below] maps highlight demolitions in Seattle based on submitted demolition permits. The number of permits has increased dramatically over the last five years, and the map reflects their corresponding demolition locations throughout the city.

Each dot represents one submitted application for demolition of an existing structure.

The amount of demolition this cycle relative to the last cycle is staggering.
