Master Builders Association Past President Jim Potter, of Kauri Investments, and former Association board member Robert Pantley, of Natural and Built Environments, LLC, provided a presentation on microhousing market perspectives to the Seattle City Council’s Transportation Committee on Capitol Hill last Monday, May 6. At first, the event drew more media than attendees, but more than 100 neighborhood activists eventually packed the room, demanding a moratorium on all microhousing projects in the city.
