I just recall that awhile back I had heard that despite Foster's name being attached, he wasn't really involved in this project, and was probably just giving an Ok to stick his name on what was mainly a local firms' work. I discounted it at the time, but it definitely seems likely now given the unimaginitive result...

it looks like the a variation on the design shown in the rendering is moving forward. The bulletin board shows the building has a 'wavy' footprint like the renderings in this post. Anyone know of updated renderings??

Quote:
The proposal is for a 42-story building containing 600,000 sq. ft. of office, 12,000 sq. ft. of retail with 150 residential units above and a 3-story building containing 19,000 sq. ft. of retail/restaurant. Project includes 30,000 sq. ft. of open space over five levels of below-grade parking for 620 vehicles...
Design Review meeting has been scheduled:

Tuesday, June 10th
5:30 and 7:00p
Seattle City Hall, Bertha Landes Room

Meeting Notice:

Here is the best rendering I've seen yet, lifted from the DJC-



From an article entitled "Design Perspectives: Is the design for Civic Square tower special enough?"

...indeed...
