All the different textures make this building seem a bit confused, but it doesn't come off as tacky. Overall it will be a benefit for Seattle.

I really like the design, it's very unusual. I lived in Seattle for 20 years but moved away in 1994. When I went back to visit relatives a couple of years ago I couldn't believe how much the downtown area had changed with so many new buildings. With projects such as this one and the dramatic changes happening along the waterfront Seattle is going to be one of the most impressive port cities in the country.

I don't think skyscrapers are Seattle's thing. The city has a rather mundane skyline and the addition of a square-topped building doesn't help.

Seattle Stiletto Tower Shows Bet on Mixed-Use Real Estate



Quote:
A proposed 57-story office tower that would be Seattle’s second-highest building will have apartments at the skyline, marquee retail on the street and a hotel on the same block.

The $550 million Rainier Square project, shaped like a J with a spiked heel in the initial design, is among the first in the city to combine four different types of real estate in one property, said Greg Johnson, president of developer Wright Runstad & Co. The Seattle-based company plans to apply for final review and permits with the local planning department in November, he said.

[...]

Second-Tallest

The proposed building height of about 795 feet (242 meters) would make Rainier Square second only to the 76-story Columbia Center in south downtown. Columbia Center, at 943 feet, is the second-highest building on the U.S. West Coast after the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles.


Starting in November, Wright Runstad will operate the existing Rainier Square complex as part of an 80-year ground lease. It will manage Rainier Tower under a separate agreement.

It's widely regarded as the premier west coast skyline and one of the best in the US, especially for it's size. Columbia Center and the Space Needle are the obvious highlights but there are many other architectural gems (Smith Tower, Rainier Tower, Seattle Public Library, EMP, u/c 5th and Columbia...). You don't have to love it, but lots of people do.

I would certainly put Seattle in the top 5 skylines in the US, even over LA and SF. Probably the most beautiful natural setting for any skyine in the entire US, too.

Height raised to 850' with 4 additional floors added. Can we get the title updated?

Great news!

I like how that cutaway seems to reference Yamasaki's tower nearby.

Fantastic news! This really adds some great bulk and height to the city!

Once the supertall gets finalised and built, Seattle will look incredible

Very nice! Seattle's skyline needs a few towers that can help it to compete with San Francisco's in the next decade.

The city actually urged them to go taller but they decided this is what suited their needs.

Seattle's city council discourages height...enormous fees, strict limits (even after the fees), etc.
