I don't think it looks anything like any of those. No more than other buildings built around the same time that's for sure. It looks more Weber Thompson-esque to me.Looks like the typical NBBJ tower. It has similarities with a lot of the recent NBBJ designed towers in the area (1918 8th, Russell Investments Center, Amazon HQ, City Center Plaza in Bellevue).
There is no more profoundly moving public space than Nakamura Lawn. I always go there. ALL the time. Constantly. I just take the bus there to bask in its glorious sunshine and cast a disdainful eye on all of those evil highrises which should be replaced by surface parking lots, parking garages, and single-family bungalows. In order to keep Seattle ******-tonk! Because this isn't Manhattan.Nakamura Lawn: a Very Important place!
What you are seeing is not the lawn. Those hills are actually covered in strawberry vines I think? The lawn itself is actually pretty nice.um those pictures show the Nakamura lawn already looks pretty crappy. Maybe they need to look at a different type of seed.........just saying:dunno:
I wonder if that's on the priority list for the US Justice Department. Guessing not.Okay it doesn't need to be hip, but it needs to be decent enough that it's used on a regular basis, since it's taking up quite a bit of extremely valuable real estate in the very heart of Downtown. Yeah it would be way better if they were more distributed and City Hall Park felt hospitable to everyone.
