Seattle could soon have a new tallest building if Miami-based developer Crescent Heights‘ proposal for a 101-story skyscraper at Fourth Avenue and Columbia Street is approved by the City. As the Puget Sound Business Journal reports:
The latest plan, which Crescent officials said is still early, shows the tower will have 1,200 residential units, 167,150 square feet of office and retail space, and 150 hotel rooms and underground parking for 750 vehicles.
The earlier version of the project called for 840 residences, 160,000 square feet of office, 30,000 square feet of retail and parking for 400 cars.
Although the exact height of the building in feet has not been determined, at 101 stories it would surely be the tallest on the West Coast — a title currently held by LA’s 73-story, 1,018-foot US Bank Tower. The Seattle skyscraper would also dwarf its neighbor across the street and current-tallest-Seattle-building, the 76-story Columbia Center.
It will be awhile before a decision is made on the fate of the proposal, but according to PSBJ, when project representatives met with city officials on September 9th, they said they wanted to start construction in 2017.
