That is sooo wrong. If the house has been lived in for decades, and was kept up not decaying, falling apart there is no need to tear it down. If the house has been left to rot for decades then yes it needs to come down.

Unfortunately no. Our city has a 100 year deconstruction mandate. Any residence over 100 years must be dismantled by hand. Sometimes it's recycled and sometimes it goes to the landfill.

Our city, like many others on the West coast, is going through a major growth spurt. Homes which sit on a lot that can be split into two lots are being gobbled up by developers like crazy. They build two mostly huge homes, with no yards, and sell them for a premium ($550-1.5 million). It's a sad infectious disease.

My personal photo assignment for the past few years has been documenting this wanton destruction.

It won't last, it can't. It's similar here in the Detroit area, but it's all completely fake and is the result of FED 'funny money.' It only appears that things are on the mend - the bitter reality is that they're just digging us a bigger hole.

Is the situation really similar to Detroit though?
We have a large influx of people selling their properties in other states (primarily CA) and moving here to buy BIG houses with their profits. They are moving from the Silicon Valley to the Silicon Forest. We have jobs apparently.

This.
I've lived in Seattle since 1962, never seen anything like the current housing market. This isn't like the last bubble. There is a lot of cash offers. I'm in the remodel supply industry. Lots of the nice older houses in nice neighborhoods are being remodeled. Unfortunately all the multifamily going up are cookie cutter crap and a lot of the new single family are down right ugly contemporary. Oh well, the city council is on a mission to rid the city of single family neighborhoods, I hope to be gone before they destroy what use to be a beautiful city. I'll miss my 1930 bungalow though.

You are going through the exact same thing up there... and so is Vancouver BC. It's sickening.

Here's the next one to go... not technically a house, but it was a Club House for the Lloyd Golf Course. Going up in it's place is a Public Storage building. :cry:
