Pre-sub notes posted online.

Most interesting parts to me:

14. BW proposed question about height limit, if it is departable relative to
mechanical use above 500’ [as is the case in DMC zoning]. WT would like to place amenity and mechanical spaces at/above 500’ height limit per Code section 23.49.008.D.3. SDCI: Amenity is not mechanical; NO other comment.
15. BM stated that massing options presented at EDG will need to show future projects currently being planned in the area, especially WSCC expansion. Do not show the previous MUP design, unless it is one of the 3 Massing
Options. BM recognized that tower placement would be somewhat limited due to tower spacing on the north, and Metro tunnel on the south. Explore variation in the ground floor plan and podium use options at EDG. Do not include FAR matrix in EDG packet.
16. DF stated the new Preferred Option has all parking below grade and a shared entrance lobby, but this will require a curb cut in order to provide preferred hotel access and passenger loading safety.

LC, God bless ya. From your fingertips to God's ear. I've been wanting this project to move forward for the past few years.

It's comical that we are unsure if something can go a bit over 500' for a residential tower in such a central location. I won't restate all the pro-height arguments, but this zone in particular seems so arbitrary.

48 floors- so this tower won't be the stock 440'! That's sweet.

375 parking spaces all below grade. That's going deep!

That much parking for 395 dwelling units and 178 hotel rooms seems overkill to me in this location (next door to Link Westlake station, and a few blocks walk from every single bus line serving downtown).

Seeing as the transit tunnel will be Link only shortly, would their excavation be able to take out the portion of the tunnel that cuts under the SW portion of this property?

I think you mean SE corner of site. I think the answer is "no" unless the developer wanted to pay a lot to reconstruct the merge between the Pine Street Stub tunnel structure (where the trains run) and the original DSTT structure. Here's the most recent site plan from earlier this year: http://web6.seattle.gov/dpd/edms/Get...Docs&id=554460

Yes, SE, do the trains veer north when leaving Westlake station before veering south as the go beneath I-5?

Changed the thread title. If anyone knows the exact proposed height, please let me know.

Presumably it would be 550' or a good percentage of that. A lot of projects don't use all of the extra 10%.

OK, we'll go with that for the time being.

Fana Group has plans for 48-story tower downtown

The building would have 395 apartments, a 178-room hotel and street-level retail.

By JON SILVER
Journal Staff Reporter

The Fana Group of Companies is reintroducing plans for a hotel and residential tower at Eighth Avenue and Pine Street in downtown Seattle.

The city granted a master use permit for a similar project at that location in 2008 but it expired in 2013.

The new proposal is for a 48-story tower with 395 residential units, 178 hotel rooms and 8,000 square feet of street-level retail. Underground parking for 375 vehicles is also proposed.



The tower would be at Eighth and Pine, near the convention center.

This is worth the wait, taller and curved, good stuff. The sooner the better for this.
