I don't see many non-glass/steel/concrete towers proposed/under construction in other cities, so why should Seattle be any different?
By "connecting to the Smith Tower" I was speaking architecturally. Seattle has a solid profile, but it'd definitely profit from more "warm" classical architecture, as it's a rather chilly place with more and more of seemingly cold and sterile random glass towers.

Seattle could take some inspiration from early skyscrapers.

Or you let dreams fly by looking at some New Classical architecture. Or with the supertall projects of NY.

The last post is three city blocks. The two on the right have leased their offices to Google, about 600,000 sf. They have about 150 apartments as well combined. They appear likely to start this spring. The third block hasn't gone very far in entitlements, and has so far been planned as primarily residential (as the other two were before Google).

All those glassy boxes... Someone build a stone-cladded tower with classical features like setbacks for Seattle, finally! The city starts to look as bland and uninspiring as Vancouver.

A lot of these are 440'. The city's going to have a very stubby, plateaud skyline if this keeps up.

Or often in the 420' to 430' range...they can do habitable space for residential uses up to 400' in sizeable areas, with an extra 10% for architecture, mechanical, and amenities...some use it all, some don't.

Three more residentials of that height are breaking ground basically this week on the north edge of Downtown -- the two-tower 1120 Denny project and the one-tower Nexus condo at 1808 Minor. The first two started drilling shoring this week, and the second is tearing up the parking lot this week and had its ceremonial groundbreaking recently.

That makes 16 residential towers in the 398-440' range and and 7 commercial 499 to 660' range in the current boom for downtown, plus a couple just short of 450' in Bellevue.

The north side of Downtown does risk a flat top. Many of the 40-story residentials are in the same area. Other areas have different heights. Also, legislation this year might give a lot of the current 400/440' and 500/550' areas an additional 10%, and some projects appear to be looking at that. All with massive fees of course.

PS, commercial uses in many zones don't get the same height. The latest Amazon example is an example that's zoned to allow 440' housing but 240' commercial including strict FAR limits as well.

Bellevue is also getting a 450' flat top, but they should raise the limit to 600' for a small area this year, and at least one job appears likely to take it.
