What a great video. The building looks awesome. I know the office vacancy rate is really high right now, but i do hope they build this one...

This is a fantastic design. It really complements the Colombia Center and the color palate of Seattle. I hope it gets built soon.

It's been almost 4 years and nothing has happened. I think this one has been successfully shelved.

Seattle has plenty of projects that are either happening or still being considered after not hearing much for four years. Economy coming back, etc. So far it's apartments obviously but it could happen for offices too.

SEATTLE | 5th & Colombia | 201m 660ft | 43 floors

This proposal has been up for a while but I don't think there's a thread on it here, it seems pretty likely to happen as well.

There's a guy at SSC that must work for the developer, he says there may be a hotel component of the tower on the lower floors. He gave some hints at when it might be built (as in a minimum leased space requirement), but no timeline unfortunately.

I don't think it is, I checked out the SSC thread and it seems this thing is still good to go.

This and the amazon towers will be great for Seattle.

Fortunately not dead, the guy at SSC (who works at the development firm) said they are recruiting tenants (both hotel and office), so just on hold!

If you hold your breathe make sure someone is there to catch you when you pass out, I'm sure it will be a while.

But it's definitely not dead, and that's straight from the developer.

SEATTLE | SLS tower | FT | 43 FLOORS

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-0...sls-hotel.html

Seattle’s Tallest Tower in Two Decades to House SLS Hotel





By Nadja Brandt & Hui-yong Yu
Feb 13, 2013

Quote:
A Seattle office tower that’s planned to be the city’s tallest new building in two decades will include a luxury SLS hotel, the boutique brand’s first location in the area as property demand strengthens. SBE Entertainment Group LLC, which owns the SLS brand, will run the 184-room hotel on the tower’s second through 15th floors, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Sam Nazarian said. The Los Angeles-based company also operates Hyde nightclubs and the Katsuya and Cleo restaurant brands.

Construction will start on the $400 million downtown building by Oct. 1 and completion is scheduled for mid-2016, said Kevin Daniels, president of Seattle-based Daniels Real Estate, which is developing the 43-story tower with Stockbridge Capital Group of San Francisco. The partners and Nazarian are betting on continued growth in Seattle’s office and hospitality markets, which outperformed the rest of the U.S. last year.

“Certain U.S. cities are benefiting greatly from the economic superpower called China -- the money that is flowing into homes and businesses here through Chinese nationals is amazing,” Daniels said in a telephone interview. “Add to that the economic and job growth at all the major employers in this area, like Amazon, Nordstrom, Starbucks and Boeing, and you have a city that is firing on all cylinders.”

The size of the new office tower and its location at the southern end of the city’s downtown, an area dominated by smaller firms, may make it challenging for the developers to fill the space. The building may also face competition from the Columbia Center across the street, according to Bruce Vasseur, chief financial officer at Seattle-based O’Connor Consulting Group LLC. Columbia Center is the tallest building in Seattle at 76 stories.....Daniels and Stockbridge obtained permits for the Seattle property in 2008, Daniels said. Upon completion, the new building would be the tallest since the 56-story Two Union Square was finished in 1989, said Alan Justad, head of community engagement for the Seattle Department of Planning and Development.

Congratulations Seattle !!

You're going to inherit a very modern 660 foot tall tower on your skyline.
