Greetings,

I made these maps showing the percent of units in buildings with 50 or more housing units in select cities by Zip Code using 2014 ACS 5-Year Data. There are four categories: < 25%, 25 to 49%, 50 to 74%, and > 75% (see legend on each map). I have listed each city's total units in buildings with 50 or more units along with the overall percent of housing units in buildings with 50 or more units. The maps for these cities are drawn at the same scale, and they are listed in alphabetical order.

Atlanta: Total units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 51,302. Percent of units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 22.6%


Baltimore: Total units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 26,315. Percent of units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 8.9%


Boston: Total units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 38,105. Percent of units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 13.9%


Chicago: Total units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 214,916. Percent of units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 18%


DC: Total units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 78,590. Percent of units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 26%


Los Angeles: Total units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 198,229. Percent of units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 13.9%


Miami: Total units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 55,099. Percent of units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 29.2%


New York City: Total units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 1,071,323. Percent of units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 31.4%


Philadelphia: Total units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 59,844. Percent of units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 8.9%


San Francisco: Total units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 60,555. Percent of units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 15.9%


Seattle: Total units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 53,161. Percent of units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 17.1%

Seattle: Total units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 60,555. Percent of units in buildings with 50+ housing units - 17.1%

With all the 300-400 unit buildings in the pipeline in DC, I could see DC at over 30% and well over 100,000 units by the next census in 2020.

Yes. NYC, DC, and Miami should all have over 30% of their total housing units in large, multi-unit buildings (of 50+) by 2020.

Seattle should be in the low 20s now, and maybe around 25% by the census. We build some detached townhouses and quite a few smaller apartment buildings, but most new units are in larger buildings.

I can foresee Seattle's percentage of housing in large, multi-unit buildings going up meaningfully by the 2020 count. Is Seattle replacing single family's with multi-unit buildings? The single family, detached housing percentage is still very high.

65% of Seattle is zoned single family, and it's protected. That's a big reason why the city is expensive. The 15% where multifamily is allowed is where most new construction occurs, and land is very expensive. Those areas still have a lot of houses, but they're being replaced quickly. A plus is that dense, walkable areas are sprouting all over town in those 15% zones, so the city can feel bigger than its overall density suggests, and more people are right next to transit.

Hey Revitalizer, have you ever done amount of raw number apartment units versus raw attached housing units, versus raw detached housing units for each of these cities?

Ok, and thanks for taking the time to do these! Very interesting stuff. DC's map will spread pretty far to the east as development is moving to the Ward 7 border right now. The footprint will be very large in a few years of buildings that size. It looks like NOMA, Union Market, Ivy City, Atlas District/H Street, and Capital Riverfront are not on the map really.
