Seattle is the 4th fastest growing city in the U.S. (1) Based on the latest Census data, 15,000 more people live in Seattle in just one year (as of July 2015) pushing the total population to 684,451.

That’s probably why it seems like every other block in Seattle is under construction. Cranes are erected throughout the city, but the number of construction sites downtown is particularly striking.

What’s being built and why? Our mobile-and social media-friendly infographic series breaks it down.
