New proposal on the DPD today for a 40 story office tower at the SE corner of 5th and Madison. This is across 5th from the 5th & Madison condo and kitty corner from the library. It replaces the lowrise building the houses the college club.
isnt that an area with no height limit? id like to see them wait and build somthing tall in that part then a 30 story tower....i dont wanna see that little land in that area go to waste with little towers ya know?
^^ I agree. I would love to see more new taller skyscrapers like 60+ stories to get built at downtown area. I'm getting tired of new 12+ stories bulidings lately... It is time for Seattle to have taller skyscrapers.
seattle is getting taller towers. when i first moved here it seemed like with the exception of about 3 buildings most of em were about 240' to 320' now it seems like almost everything is between 330' and 500' with the exception of a handfull of buildings
I was looking at the DPD map (shown bellow) and it shows this project taking up the whole west side of the block. The south end of this property was supposed to be the 33 story condo tower, 5th & Marion. Has it been scraped in favor of building the Office tower? If not will both projects fit in this amount of space and provide enough space between them to meet the city requirements?
