First Look At 'Ninth & Stewart,' Seattle's Biggest Hotel



Quote:
April 11 2013

A couple weeks back we told you that the proposed multi-tower project replacing the old Greyhound Terminal at Stewart & 8th Ave. was evolving into a single-tower, 43-story hotel that would become the biggest in Seattle. Wednesday, PSBJ snagged an early look at the 1,550-room project that will be known as "Ninth & Stewart."

It's very, uh, white. The first six floors will be a podium that contains the lobby, affordable housing for workers, banquet space and meeting rooms. The hotel rooms and suites will take up the 37 floors above.

The project is expected to cost $400-$500M with construction set to begin in March 2014 and the grand opening slated for 2017.

Union Conflict Has Developer Talking Hold

Quote:
July 19 2013

R.C. Hedreen's Ninth & Stewart is supposed to become the biggest hotel in Seattle once it's completed. That's the tricky part, however, as a conflict between R.C. Hedreen and the hospitality workers' union might jeopardize the construction of the entire project. Via PSBJ, local labor union Unite Here Local 8 thinks the 1,700-room project is too big and would have a negative affect on wages. Hedreen is countering that this is just a ploy for higher pay and is now threateneing to shelve the $450M project and instead build smaller office & apartment buildings.

Hedreen shows design for 40-story hotel tower that tapers as it rises
By JOURNAL STAFF

R.C. Hedreen Co. has released new images of the design for its 40-story convention hotel complex at Ninth and Stewart.

A design review recommendation meeting is set for 5:30 p.m. Oct. 1 at City Hall, 600 Fifth Ave.

Hedreen wants to start utility work early next year and demolition by summer, with a goal of opening the hotel in January 2017.

There will be a five-story podium with a 35-story, 1,680-room hotel on the south end and 154 units of housing on the north end, reserved for people making 80 percent or less of area median income.

Hedreen is building low-income units on site to get higher density through a city incentive program.

The project will have 188,000 square feet of ballrooms and meeting space, and 719 underground parking spaces.

The ground floor will have 45,500 square feet of retail, restaurants and the lobby. Designs show space for a coffee house, three restaurants, a bar and retail.

Outdoor seating and landscaped areas would surround the ground floor, and there will be a mid-block corridor for vehicles and pedestrians.

The design for the south side of the complex, on Howell Street, shows it would slant inward on the lower seven floors, creating a skinnier tower on the upper floors.

LMN Architects is designing the complex, and Sellen Construction is the general contractor. Also on the team are Magnusson Klemencic Associates, Arup, Coughlin Porter Lundeen, Heffron Transportation and Site Workshop.

The developer originally planned two towers: one hotel and one office tower with 340,000 square feet. Hedreen said that plan was revised to simplify the permit process.

It's first round past massing. Facade will likely change. It's really just a strong indicator of shape.

Update: this is what we'll get if the city doesn't grant an alley vacation.

Environmental Impact Study complete. All we're waiting on now is a vote on the alley vacation to determine which of the two options they go with.

Weird. It reminds me a bit of something from the 60s or 70s.

A smaller version is happening, and they're in demo.

The City is run by idiots. The large hotel would have taken the publicly-owned alley. The developers offered to include 150 units of affordable housing on the block as a trade, in addition to the many millions in height fees, sales taxes, etc., for construction. The City tried to hold out for a higher price for their alley.

Now we get a hotel on an L-shaped site, avoiding the alley entirely (it's an L shape too). There won't be affordable housing. The hotel will be 1,264 rooms instead of 1,740, though also 500' tall like the original plan. The remainder of the block will hopefully be something worthwhile soon also, after serving as a temporary construction staging area for a couple years.

As for the idiots at City Council, their alley isn't worth much anymore in terms of a trade, and we lost our chance at that housing.
