So this project is approved?
God you are stupid. Many of us native seattlites, and I'm 5th generation btw, are not against growth, and we own some of the land your infill is happening on. So clearly we aren't against you moving here or filling in, in fact, our money depends on it.forrtunately a higher percentage of seattleites will be living in denser and smarter developments also with all the in migration the grumpy locals who despise progress will be few and far between how many of the Seattle forumers are actually Seattle natives another thing the natives are very socially awkward I was on the back of the bus and somehow we all started talking about where we came from and we were jokingly make fun of where eachother came from well there's a girl sitting with us all shriveled and scared looking and someone asked for a show of hands to see who was actually from Seattle the shriveled scared girl was the only to raise her hands then we all pointed at her and laughed
Probably from the documentation that was submitted to the Planning Department and the Design Review Board. Those documents are available earlier in this thread.I am not sure where the reporter for the article got the information about the building's height and number of floors.
This rendering is about 35 stories, not 43. Therefore it's probably out of date. They've been talking about the 43 story version.Noce find! I'm only happy if it sticks out on our skyline which I believe it will. So ill take 550'. But I would really like them to build this version of the tower:
I think that diagonal spire thing would be so cool. It would look very iconis next the BOAT.
Also if you look at the construction schedule in the posted link it says it will take a year till the tower portion start. That's a long time for them to build the garage. Is it usually this long for office projects?
The website says 550:The 660' figure appears to be the right one.
Some 43 story buildings are around 550' because they had to maximize floors within tight height limits. Those don't have architectural features on top.
In this case, there's no height limit. There's FAR, but that doesn't impact height directly. Also, the architectural feature on the roof adds probably 60' or 70'.
Furthermore, the DR skyline rendering clearly shows something in the 660' range.
