Seattle has often led the way when it comes to the number of cranes in the sky in the U.S. However, the latest crane count puts DC in the lead.

The Crane Index from Rider Levett Bucknall shows that while Seattle has the same number of cranes that they did in the last report (from Q3 2020), the number of cranes in DC has grown, from 38 in the third quarter of 2020 to 45 in the first quarter of 2021.

Seattle is tied with Los Angeles for second, each having 43 cranes. However, when looking at North America as a whole, DC’s crane count is meager compared with that of Toronto, which leads the continent with 208 cranes.
