"2030 8th Avenue introduces 350 residential units to the Denny Triangle
neighborhood of downtown Seattle. The project includes 350 parking stalls,
more than half of which will be below grade. For the residents, a large common
area rooftop terrace and amenities will provide additional living space, and a way
to meet and socialize with neighbors and friends.

The building will also provide two ground-floor retail spaces, including a potential restaurant location on the
highly visible corner where 8th Avenue meets Lenora Street and
Westlake Avenue.From a minimal 120’ x 128’ site a 400’ tower will rise. A sleek, contemporary,
curtain wall system unbroken by external decks will drape an interior concrete
frame giving shape to urban sculpture. Mechanical and other building systems
will be concealed with a sculpted top rising an additional 40’ from the rooftop.


With such a small footprint, attention to base sculpting will be critical to
connecting the tower to the ground without creating a tower that simply sits
atop a podium. Likewise, the base massing and architecture should improve the
pedestrian experience, and respond to the Lenora green street.
Residents of 2030 8th Avenue will support the City’s goals for more residential
density downtown, which in turn provides support for local small shops and
services. With the emerging South Lake Union / Denny Triangle employment
center within walking distance, and the streetcar connection to the bus tunnel /
light rail, this project is truly pedestrian and transit friendly which will be one of
several strategies employed to achieve LEED Silver Certification."

The 3 blocks Amazon.com just purchased to build 3 million sf of office space on is directly across Westlake Ave from this lot- greatly improving the likelihood that it gets built in the near future!

I lived in Honolulu for a number of years and thought 40-43 floors generally made for a good-looking residential tower - so long as all of them aren't the same height. They've since revised the height restrictions but are stuck with a huge number of buildings exactly 350 feet high. I like this building, inoffensive anyway, especially housing ~400 people in about a third of an acre.

Update!

It has a land use permit but is probably three months from a building permit, so not "approved." I'm not sure what a "render" is.

Thanks for always being the little bitch I've come to expect.

Boston-based GID to build 39-story apartment tower near Amazon HQ

By LYNN PORTER

Journal Staff Reporter

Next spring, GID of Boston plans to start building a 39-story, 355-unit apartment tower in Seattle's Denny Triangle near Amazon.com's planned new campus.

The 355 units will be larger and more upscale than other downtown apartments, aimed at both tech workers and empty nesters. Next spring, GID of Boston plans to start building a 39-story, 355-unit apartment tower in Seattle's Denny Triangle near Amazon.com's planned new campus.

Undergoing demo now. Old building is almost entirely gone now!

We're moving right along!

Is it just a coincidence that there are three different projects going up in Seattle at exactly 440ft?

That's what the zoning allows in those areas. Nearly all Seattle projects go to the upper limit.
