Awesome! Another building I'll be able to see out my window in front of Insignia!

With any luck we'll have Insignia fully surrounded before all of our old members kick the bucket!

I love the way this company locates its buildings. Fearless, imaginative.

This mornings DJC has re-written their article re: Icon Tower but without any content that we didnt know and/or haven't discussed already.

They did add a colorful map for those out-of-town'ers who don't know the parcel location.

Really looking forward to see this happen. Can't wait for more tall towers along Denny way.

Believe me, I don't want to rain on this parade, but I just thought of something; If this tower is going to have 312 parking spots, all below grade, isn't that going to be a pretty damn deep hole in the ground?

The DBT is going to run right underneath this thing!

I'm sure brighter minds than mine and with more money than God are working on this, but it just gave me pause.

Well they did intend on using the robotic parking system. Maybe that takes up a lot less space than we think?

Or floating these plans now is a ways to coerce money out of the state for loss of development ability with their land.

That's good point, Ruffhauser. I think we should wait and find out how will they work it out when new design review is released. That will be interesting to find out how will they solve that challenge.

I can see it now:

"Whats the backup in the McGinn tunnel? Oh, the residents of Icon tower returned home and parked their cars. The back up will dissipate when they go to work tomorrow morning"

I'd imagine any negotiations completed years ago, including any easements and/or lost development capability.

They're probably thinking outside the box here. Like...maybe there's an off-ramp from the tunnel directly into the garage. What an amenity that would be! Better even than a pet bridge.

Let's put 2 and 2 together. This went from 30 to 38 stories. I'll bet most of the parking now will be above grade. Let's say 8 floors for fun.

The description on DPD says the parking will be below grade. Should be interesting to see how they will make this work. Anyone have an idea how deep underground the 99 tunnel will be under this site?

The elevation graph is kind of hard to read, but it looks like it's almost 100 ft deep at the end of Zone 9, where this lot is.

Per Zone 10 description: "By the time she reaches Denny Way, Bertha is less than 100 feet deep"

The design in 2006 was for 275 spaces with 4-levels below grade - likely some above grade parking, too. Pretty sure they will stick with 4-below and add 4 above going from 35 to 38 stories.

Me too. There are several more mini-sites along Denny.
