King5: New Seattle High Rises Costing Residents Their Views

By June 4, 2014

King5, New Seattle high rises costing residents their views:

Many longtime Seattle residents are finding that their once-spectacular views are disappearing as high rise buildings are constructed downtown.

At the Cosmopolitan Condominiums at 7th Avenue and Virginia Street, new condos going up to the north are in position to block the Space Needle view. And at the Panorama House at Minor Avenue and University Street on First Hill, Helen Jones is seeing the skyline change dramatically since she moved in 20 years ago.

The Cosmo has been struggling with this issue since day one so I’m not particularly sensitive to their plight. And I’m sure the people in Cosmo are blocking someone’s view.

To see how the skyline has been changing, check out this recently released video showing its evolution from the people behind the Fifth and Columbia tower:
