That addition to the top of the old brick, wedge-shaped building near Pioneer Square looks like it's going to turn out really well.

Usually, that sort of thing with the new plunked onto the old is a dismal failure. But this is looking good -- perhaps due to the solidity of the original building, but also to a skillful design. Kudos to the architects!

It does look like it might be fairly nice when completed.

With shoring installation underway in the past few weeks at Onni's 1120 Denny (2 x residential around 420' ea), the Nexus condos (same height), and the office tower at 2nd & University (500')....

We're now at 23 new towers in this boom that are at least 398' for Downtown Seattle. Of those, 16 are residentials generally a little below 440', one is a hotel at 500', and the others are mostly offices with four over 500' and one at 660'.

That also puts the greater Downtown boom at well over 25,000 housing units and 12,000,000 sf of office so far. Plus something like 3,200 hotels rooms, rail lines, a freeway bypass tunnel, and so on.

That's impressive, and a few delayed projects (archeological, NIMBY issues on 5th Ave.).
I'd be very impressed if the Civic Square site, 600 Wall, and formerly AVA on 8th sites made progress.

The council passed the new height bonuses last week...I don't know if the mayor signed it already. Developers seem to be lining up to use the new heights including 802 Pine.

Whether projects will go forward is always a question until they happen, but it seems like numerous additional towers could start in the next year, including some that are using the new height.

Mayor Murray Unveils Affordable Housing Proposal for Chinatown-International District
http://murray.seattle.gov/mayor-murr...onal-district/

April 14, 2017 by Office of the Mayor

Mayor Ed Murray has sent legislation to City Council that will require new development in the Chinatown-International District to contribute to affordable housing, producing at least 150 new affordable homes over the next decade. The zoning change will implement the Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda’s (HALA) Mandatory Housing Affordably (MHA) requirements.

“Growth has brought thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in investments to Seattle,” said Mayor Murray. “But while we are the envy of many cities, we need to ensure this growth doesn’t push out the very communities that define our character. The Chinatown-International District is one these defining communities, where you can find dozens of languages, cultural amenities, transit, markets, and history all on the same street corner. By working with the community, and communities across the city, we are requiring developers to build or fund affordable housing for the first time, and helping to keep our neighborhoods places where anyone can live. Affordability is key to ensure that the Chinatown-International District remains the cultural landmark it is today and for generations to come.”

That's nice if the thing gets signed and the development can get going.

Denny Triangle's north edge, along Denny. Historically/technically downtown ends on the north side at Denny.

Shilla Tower gets taller, adds car lift and ‘abraded' facade

By BRIAN MILLER
Journal Staff Reporter

For the triangular site at 2300 Eighth Ave., occupied for decades by the now-closed Shilla restaurant, a planned 39-story residential tower will have its second early design guidance meeting next week. The previous proposal was for 36 stories.

Caron Architecture is designing the 400-foot building, which will face Denny Way and Denny Park. The 9,878-square-foot site is also bounded by Bell Street. On it, the proposed tower would have 286 units, 4,265 square feet of retail, parking for 143 bikes, and underground parking for 75 vehicles that would be accessed via a car lift.

Tenants would also have a rooftop deck and amenity space.

I like the glass glazing near the top. Would have liked it if the glass jutted up as a peak on one of the corners past the roof line. Like the parking to unit ratio. 75 stalls.

What do you mean "technically" Downtown ends at Denny? That's subjective.

I agree that it's a common version of a boundary though.

With three 40-story apartments already underway north of Denny, it'll start feeling downtownish by sometime in 2018.

I meant more "historically" although most modern maps have shown some common northern boundary involving Denny in whole or in part.

I agree that the "feel" of the area is changing. It's a far cry from the one-floor manufacturing, warehouses or surface parking lots that dominated the area.

I wouldn't have called most of the Triangle "Downtown" until at least 2007 or so. Even then much of it was only called that because it was near activity not in it...it was the blankest part of town. If maps included it, it was because they blank spots between districts need to be assigned to someone.

Yes, I agree that it had some of the blankest spots in the city. Maybe the ideas of "City Center", "Downtown" and "CBD" are just confusing. SoDo and International District and the old Denny Triangle would be CC areas even though they didn't have towers like the CBD. Belltown would be downtown but not CBD.

4th & Bell Tower design now has large entry atrium

By BRIAN MILLER
Journal Staff Reporter

Developer TeamRise has its second early design guidance meeting next Tuesday for 2302 Fourth Ave. The project is officially called 4th & Bell Tower.

CallisonRTKL and Studio 19 Architects are designing the proposed 24-story building at the corner of Bell Street. That 19,000-square-foot property includes the landmarked Franklin Apartments, which will be preserved.

Planned are 287 units, 8,700 square feet of retail and parking for 204 vehicles on four levels below grade. Parking will be accessed from the alley to the east.

New to the design is a large, prominent entry atrium. The developer calls it a mid-block thoroughfare that “promotes pedestrian interaction on the site, as well as allows for spill-out from retail spaces within the project. It also promotes an activated alley.” The city has converted most of Bell Street to a landscaped, pedestrian friendly woonerf, which connects to the alley.

The revised design includes a two-story brick facade on the north podium.

2121 Fifth tower adds a story and more hotel rooms thanks to HALA

By BRIAN MILLER
Journal staff reporter

Tsang Enterprises, the developer proposing a hotel/apartment tower at 2121 Fifth Ave., has filed an application for a master use permit for what has now become an 18-story tower.

At the final design review meeting in January, the plan was for 17 stories, with 136 apartments above 168 hotel rooms, restaurant and retail space, and parking for 120 vehicles on five underground levels, accessed from the alley.

The new proposal — which relies on the pending HALA upzone for Belltown — is for 18 stories, with 136 apartments and parking for 121 vehicles. But an extra floor of hotel space has been added, boosting the total number of hotel rooms to 184.

Before, the building height was capped at 160 feet to avoid triggering the rules on tower separation. The 24-story Martin apartment tower is immediately to the south, and a 41-story hotel/apartment project — formerly known as Potala Tower — is now under construction west across the alley at 2116 Fourth Ave.



Here is the final design for what is now an 18-story tower with 136 apartments and 184 hotel rooms.
