Never understood height limits in CBDs due to flightpaths.

What I mean is, if you think about it, from the perspective of an airplane landing or taking off, 280 meters or 350 meters should be negligible. Either you're 5,000 feet in the air after 5 miles or you're not.

Obviously I'm not a pilot but how much of a difference can it really be between 250 feet and 2000 feet in terms of an ascending airplane ? Okay, bad example and of course it's all contingent on the airport's proximity to the CBD but it still seems strange that 330 meters presents that much more of a risk as does a tower at 290 meters.

I'm not familiar with the flight zones @ SeaTac but in Miami they're clear and all the taller towers are within previously defined limits. At least, as far as I've seen of late.

Max limits in Seattle should be defined and clear.

Sea-Tac Airport isn't the issue, its the Boeing Field (King County International) that is the issue.

Then why does Seattle's current tallest exist if it's such an issue?

It's such an issue that Columbia Center was built at it's current height instead of the originally proposed 1,005 feet

We also discussed on our local page for this project (check out the Seattle Sub-Forum some time!) that in addition to Boeing Field, it's the medical airlift for Harbor View that is also at risk.

awesome. I was worried for awhile after what happened with 888 2nd Ave that Seattle would never get a supertall. If there were a contest, this will ensure Seattle can compete with San Francisco.

I guess my opinion is going to be the one that ticks everybody else off. Sorry, but I'm not a fan. It reminds me of BIG's POS redesign of 2WTC with scabs torn off and band-aids slapped on. It's placement next to Seattle's current tallest is also unfortunate, but there's not much you can do about that.

I respect anyones right to not care for the design but it doesn't look ANYTHING like BIG's disastrous 2WTC. The silhouette and the facade materials, for starters, are completely different from the mess that has become 2WTC. Im not saying this is a undeniable knockout beauty- I actually haven't decided what I think about it, but it doesn't look anything like BIG's 2WTC.
