We dont really know for certain but from what we do know, yes.

It also may now include a hotel on some of the floors instead of all being office. Again, no hard confirmation on that yet.

FOR LEASE signs have been put in the ground at the site so pre-leasing is definitely underway.

Sounds encouraging. I've been rooting for this one forever. And I'd like to think that if they're ready to excavate that they've been getting some serious nibbles on the commercial component.

Yes, this plus the Amazon towers will make quite an impact on the skyline from almost every vantage point!

It's the perfect foil for the dark and sinister Columbia Center.

To begin this fall:

Article

Quote:
After a five-year wait, developers say they will break ground this fall on a 660-foot downtown office tower that would be the tallest building erected in Seattle in more than 20 years.

Daniels Development of Seattle and equity partner Stockbridge Capital Partners of San Francisco obtained permits for the 43-story Fifth and Columbia Tower in early 2008.

But they put the asymmetrical, angular project on hold later that year when Washington Mutual collapsed and downtown offices began to empty.

Now the downtown market, driven by strong job growth, at last has recovered sufficiently to start building again — even without signed tenants, the companies’ leaders say.

“We just really like Seattle as a market, today and for the long term,” said Stephen Pilch, Stockbridge’s chief operating officer

Has that HK feel to it. Very nice modernist tower that brings Seattle's skyline into the 21st century.

It's a perfect, shiny foil to the dark and brooding Columbia.

Cool tower, I don't know how it will look in the older skyline but the design by itself is nice.
