On the rise....

Seattle's City Council finally repealed a set of laws restricting building size in the city.

It's about time.

While I love Seattle's skyline, I've always thought that more would be better; both from a visual point and from a population perspective. These new laws allow taller buildings, but also include other provisos, such as showers in buildings for office workers who bike to work (an excellent idea), more awnings to shelter pedestrians from rain (another excellent idea, especially in Seattle), and developers being required to contribute money to affordable housing.

Here's a nice pic of the skyline (from Danny Choo's site):
