Seattle seems to have some nice highrises planned. I haven't been there since 1997! I need to go back.

Seattle and Bellevue keep rising taller. Nice tower.

Yeah but there ain't much going up in Seattle though... I've always hoped for the West Coast to reach the 400/500 m one day; whether LA, San Fransisco or Seattle.
It's just not happening unfortunately...

FAA and building regulations limit highrises in the downtown Seattle area to less than 1,000 ft. (~330 m).

The cladding looks good. Street level should be fine too.

Idiots... The US still disappoints me sometimes.

Thanks for the answer though!

I wouldn't call this taller than current skyline. It is about the average in downtown Seattle. Nice design but won't have a significant impact on the skyline.

I miss Seattle so much. This tower looks quite nice, but again it's not really the original Seattle style. Anyways, good project.
