38-story tower proposed at Second and Stewart
Developers have approached Seattle city planners about building a 38-story tower downtown at Second Avenue and Stewart Street.
The lower floors of the 440-foot tower would be a hotel and the top 27 floors would have 367 apartments or condos, according to a thumbnail description submitted to the Department of Planning and Development. The project also would have five levels of underground parking.
No permit applications have been filed yet, a department spokesman said, so no additional details are available. Contacts listed for the project did not return calls seeking more information.
The two-story, retail-and-office MJA Building has stood on the site since 1914. Iowa-based insurance and financial-services giant Principal Financial Group bought it and the neighboring, 10-story Broadacres Building from Seattle's Alhadeff family in 2007.
It's not clear whether the Broadacres site is included in the tower proposal.
