Crescent Heights says 4/C tower will be 1,111 feet, and 102 stories
By JOURNAL STAFF

Crescent Heights Inspirational Living, a developer based in Miami, filed a draft design review packet with the city yesterday showing the first images and more details about 4/C, its proposed tower at 701 Fourth Ave.

The Fourth and Columbia tower would be 1,111 feet tall, which would make it the tallest tower on the West Coast. The plan is for 102 stories.

The 4/C complex would total more than 1.4 million square feet, with 1,200 residential units, 151,650 square feet of office space, 150 hotel rooms and 15,500 square feet of retail. About 750 parking stalls would be located below and above ground.

The document lists a figure of $290 million.

The massing study indicates the approximate size and volume, but not the final design.

LMN Architects is designing the project.

Documents show a 240-foot podium that would contain retail, office space and the hotel. The podium takes up most of the half-block site on the west side of Fourth Avenue between Columbia and Cherry streets. A slimmer residential tower would sit on top of the podium.

Crescent Heights' preferred option has vertical and horizontal segmentation, or “cuts”, on the exterior to break up the facade. Some of the cuts would be at the height of significant structures in the city's history such as Smith Tower, Columbia Center and the Space Needle.

“By modulating the facade, the design avoids the monolithic extrusion typical of most high-rise towers and feels more like a stitched-together urban community,” the documents say.

The first design review meeting is set for 7 p.m. Nov. 17 in City Hall, 600 Fifth Ave.

The area around Crescent Heights' project is busy during the work day, but there is little to do at night.

Crescent Heights said in the documents that the area is changing, and new housing will bring in more around-the-clock activity.

“New building trends clearly show a movement toward a downtown that is active 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” according to the documents. “Proposed buildings around the site will create amenities that will be open at all hours of the day. Creating residential units in this area will allow people to live where they work and relax.”

A document filed with the city earlier this week indicates Howard Howlett of LMN Architects is working with the Federal Aviation Administration to ensure the tower doesn't interfere with airplanes taking off or landing at Boeing Field.

Notes from a Sept. 9 meeting with the city indicate Crescent Heights would like to begin construction in 2017.

Crescent Heights last week paid $48.75 million, or $1,707 per square foot, for the half block. The seller was the Costacos family.

The complex would total more than 1.4 million square feet, with 1,200 housing units in a tower above office space, a hotel and retail.

We have strict seismic standards in the country for new construction, so I don't follow what you're saying.

This is missing a lot of projects, including all of the many downtown projects (some under construction already), but its the closest we have to a complete visual for all the Seattle towers proposed or under construction.

The FAA just gave approval for our new tallest https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external/WebBlobServlet

Right now the roof height is believed to be 1029' but we are still hoping for the 1111' version, either way it will be big.

Alexandria Real Estate and architect CollinsWoerman presented their plans for 400 Dexter for recommendation to the design review board last night. Those plans call for the demolition of three existing single-story buildings to be replaced with a 12-story office building with 269,700 sq. ft. of office space, approximately 13,800 sq. ft. of retail and 457 below-grade parking spaces.

Here is the construction cam of the site - https://app.oxblue.com/open/Alexandriaree/400Dexter

The biggest news this week is that Onni plans to start the first block of their South Lake Union housing complex in early January. This site, 1120 Denny, is two 40-story towers and 1,179 units (the second block, 1120 John, will be another 900 or so units with two shorter towers).

Also, news this month is that Facebook has leased two lowrise office buildings in SLU and the first is now shoring.

Other recent tower starts include the third Amazon tower (510' and 1,100,000 sf?) and Potala Tower (Around 430' with residential/hotel, which stalled for over a year with a hole and a tower crane in place).

The WSF ferry terminal rebuild just filed for a building permit, making it a potential spring or summer start, which matches what I've heard.

We have $70 billion in voter-approved transit coming through the three Sound Transit packages, but I won't detail that here. Several years from now one highlight will be a third transit tunnel getting started through Downtown Seattle.

How is that Alaska Way Viaduct replacement tunnel progressing? Removing the viaduct and reconnecting the city with the waterfront is what will lead to a huge development boom there.

The tunnel machine is working and looking to complete the tunnel pretty soon.

The waterfront, however, will be paved over with a 100+ foot highway to accommodate all the demands that stakeholders have (2 ferry queuing lanes, bus lanes, greenery, parking, etc.), so there's no room for developing anything...not even a park.

Suggesting that we add towers to the waterfront would rile up just about everyone in the city, since there is no room left on the waterfront. The development boom will instead continue in other areas (South Lake Union, Denny Triangle, other neighborhoods).

The ferry lanes would just be a part of the distance. I'm not taking sides on the street concept yet but it would mostly be better than that.

The development boom was obviously never intended for the public ROW. The areas next to it are sort of already booming, and that will continue.

WSDOT has a website to follow the drilling machine (Named Bertha): http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/Projects/Via...t/FollowBertha

Must stress that this is just the boring machine. After it finishes digging, they still have to build the boxes for the two roadways. They have been constructing as they've gone, but there's still quite a bit to do. That being said, this is the riskiest part of the project and it will be a big sigh of relief when it finally finishes.

Edit: someone posted on the Seattle board that WSDOT has this graphic for where they are with roadway construction in the tunnel: http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/Projects/Via...ort_121316.pdf

NB roadway will be build last as they need the bottom of the tunnel to run spoils removal equipment for the boring machine.

How come nearly all those proposed and U/C towers in Seattle feature glass/metal facades?

No lime-/sand-/stone, no bricks? The classical Seattle skyscraper icon still is the 1914 Smith Tower with its terracotta facade. I think they should connect to it more, the skyline could need more solid stone and bricks towers.

They can't really connect to it, at least distance-wise, since it's in the middle of a historic district. Very strict about allowing even the smallest of new buildings.

The glass skyscrapers of today (which are a hallmark of the current architectural style and will probably be appreciated as such in the far future) are more energy-efficient and maximize the amount of sunlight let into the building. That's a pretty huge factor for a large client looking for offices.

I don't see many non-glass/steel/concrete towers proposed/under construction in other cities, so why should Seattle be any different?

Some other updates:

The 41-story Nexus condo at 1806 Minor just got its land use permit and appears to be days away from a shoring permit. There are zero condo highrises underway in Seattle right now despite the explosive growth in rental apartments, because our laws discourage condos. Getting one started (if it starts) would be great news.

The 1120 Denny job I wrote about hasn't started yet, but they've inched closer to a shoring permit. I'm optimistic for a February start.

The convention center expansion (basically a freestanding second convention center a block from the existing one) has announced a September start. This will be a bit bigger than the existing one, and allow the two to alternate events so we can handle twice as many conventions, or sometimes one larger one.

The small University of Washington campus in South Lake Union is starting its #6 building. This campus is biotech etc. related to the other organizations in the neighborhood. (On the main campus a couple miles north, construction is always hot and heavy...right now that includes Computer Sciences II, Life Sciences, a big vivarium, a central plant, the new Burke Museum, multiple dorms...)

I counted housing underway in greater Downtown, basically the CBD or within a 15 minute walk. It was 8,000 units. I'll have to do an updated count for the entire boom to-date but it'll be around 23,000 units.
