Busy on the glass today, loads of it on level 8 stacked and ready for install. I wonder if they intend on covering up/painting the outriggers behind the glass, awfully bright.

OK, well this isn't good.

Great view from west Seattle, that angle will be so sweet. Not surprised the hotel crane is going away, sitting there incurring costs. No idea what's going on with the site but I will remain hopeful. The site made for a great company luncheon last week so why not turn it into a temporary park/greenspace.

It will be very unfortunate if that 4th and University corner sits unfinished for very long. If its permitted and built to street level for a hotel why would they not want to finish the building while seeking an operator? Even if they went slowly. The entire block will look unfinished.

Has there been any official word that the pause or cancel button has been pushed.

The hotel and tower are certainly separate legal entities. I'm going to take a wild guess and say the project consists of 4 condominiums: 1) the parking structure; 2) the office portion of the tower; 3) the residential portion of the tower; and 4) the hotel. The first three condos are all dependent on one another but the hotel isn't. There would be pre-established shared use and operating agreements between all the parties on sharing various elements of the building maintenance, etc. I'm speculating, but my best guess is the hotel operator has not finalized their arrangement with Wright Runstad and their funders won't let the money go into the project until the operator is committed. We don't want another Daniels/SLS situation here....

Is there any evidence that the Seattle hotel market is overbuilt?

Looks like the next set of outriggers will start the bracing and termination structure.

Perhaps just a tad right now with the recent opening of the 1,262-room Hyatt Regency. Once the Convention Center's huge expansion is complete, probably not.

After a bit of render sleuthing it looks like the south side outrigger bracing structure, (OBS), will be a bit larger and start lower than the north side. Perhaps this keys in with the south outriggers appearing to be about 15% smaller than the north outriggers. This is evidenced by the earlier "gussets" appearing sooner on the core wall and south outriggers however, the north side isn't really visible, so I could be off base on this. I've also extensively compared real current height of the first braced north side outrigger versus the render, and it looks like the render shows the building to be a bit shorter in finished height than will be the case...YAY! I think we will see three more core sections rise on the east side with the OBS before terminating, and floorplates become uniform. The OBS should be awesome to watch go up and will be quite substantial.
