Seattle seems stuck on the long list of cities whose skylines need a supertall, now.

I'd love a 1,000-footer or two, speaking as a Seattleite. But what we need most is a lot of infill density -- moderately-tall highrises plus lowrises on the fringes -- which we're getting at a decent clip.

The current underway boom tops out at three 440' residential buildings, two fully underway and one in the shoring phase. Plus several at 240' or so. But demo is about to start (or has started inside) on the first of what might be a good wave of 500' buildings, the first of three Amazon office towers of that height. Nearby two 500' (or 550'?) towers are planned for hotel and housing maybe in 2015. In the Financial District three office towers are planned between about 500' and 650' with one seeming to be pretty eager. Going forward, a good number of 440' and shorter residentials are planned and showing various levels of interesting in starting, and a moderate hotel boom will also kick off this year, including a 25-story one next to our Amtrak station.

I actually disagree with this one. Seattle's skyline, like mhays said, needs more infill/density than height. I think it's because Seattle's skyline doesn't have the plateau effect many American cities seem to have like San Francisco, Boston etc. and that Columbia Center is almost a supertall at over 900ft.

Not really.

Also, no city truly NEEDS a supertall. But if we're talking cities that would want one, I think Seattle would be near the bottom of the list.

Seattle has raw aesthetic beauty out the ass. It's probably the prettiest big city in the U.S. by default. And Mt. Rainier dominates more than any skyscraper.
