DC's crane count still ranks as one of the highest among U.S. cities despite declining over the last two years.
According to Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB), the city has 26 construction cranes active as of this month. RLB's last quarterly crane index counted 35 cranes in DC. In 2020, there were 45 cranes in the sky.
"While the crane count in Washington D.C. has declined as residential and mixed-use facilities wrap up, indicators for future growth are evident," the latest RLB survey said about DC. "The pipeline for hospitality and residential sectors is particularly strong."
Despite the drop in the number of cranes in the sky, DC still has the third highest number of cranes in operation compared to the 13 U.S. cities RLB typically includes in the report. Los Angeles leads the way with 51 cranes, followed by Seattle with 37 cranes.
