SEATTLE—Based on current office leasing activity in Seattle and Bellevue alone, a projected 200,000 professional and support jobs will be created in the next several years. Estimating that every five new jobs creates demand for one new apartment unit, the region will require more than 40,000 new apartment units to maintain equilibrium with job creation and in-migration, according to a first quarter multifamily report by Colliers International. Employment fundamentals indicate that the Puget Sound is well positioned to absorb the 33,000 apartment units currently under construction and the pipeline of future development beyond that.
