Last I heard construction was to start in early 2017, so hopefully we will hear something soon.

I read somewhere that demolition of the existing mall would start at the end of May.

Good news people on this glorious Saturday!


Amazon poised to lease iconic new Seattle office tower, dramatically expanding footprint again

Amazon is close to locking down one of the most high-profile office projects in the Seattle region, indicating that it is nowhere near done growing its Seattle presence.

The Rainier Square project is one of the biggest available blocks of space in the area, and three commercial real estate sources told GeekWire that Amazon has a “pending” lease for the entirety of the office portion of the mixed-use structure. That means the major points have been hashed out, sources said, and only final details remain.

The project, which shares a downtown Seattle block with the uniquely designed Rainier Tower, includes a 58-story office and residential building as well as a 12-story hotel. The office space totals 710,000 square feet on the lower floors, with 220 residential units above. The adjacent hotel has 165 rooms.

Greg Johnson, president of Wright Runstad & Co., the developer on the project, declined to comment on leasing details. Amazon representatives did not respond to a request for comment.

Johnson said construction is slated to begin in the next couple months. Due to the construction, all the retail in the existing Rainier Tower has closed.

The Puget Sound Business Journal previously reported that Amazon was interested in the space.

So Seattle's getting in on the boot tower action lol, reminds me a lot of the Eau Du Soleil project. Could be iconic if done right.

Can't wait for this one. Seattle has several buildings in the 700 foot range with a sudden jump to the 900+ range. An 850 footer has been in much need for over 25 years. Glad this looks about to start.

What was the reason for designing this unusual piece in this manner?? I give it 8/10 as it is definitely different but a bit monolithic in form. The cladding looks killer though, if it has lighting features at night, 9.5/10!
