Wow. Cristalla looks nice. Just like the renderings, which is refreshing (so is its name). Thanks for the pic. And I guess I do need to get my names right.

Yea, that dang height limit! It does stand out looking at it from the west, and it fills in noticably when looking from Denny Triangle.

Great thread!

Jiminy, good job finding the rendering of 2nd and Pike! I like that tower a lot. I can't picture where it will be though...

^what's the activity in between James and Yesler? There is a rendering of that building right next to that activity. That made me think that it was.

Probably King County's new garage. When that's done, they'll start their office building across 6th on the existing garage site.

Probably 15 stories or so. We've discussed it in other threads.

This notice is the summery of the recent review. The review gave direction and advice for things the commission wanted changed/improved. So now I think they have a final submission to enter for approval after they do the things to improve the design, maybe it's the Master Use Application or something like that. After that then I think if approved they start construction.

Thanks for the update on that mSeattle. Hopefully they'll come up with a more creative design I like it but it's kind of plain. Maybe because of that white in it.

^I agree, they should do something about the design...

...maybe some spikes and pentagrams.

am I the only one who likes the design of the Four Seasons?

I agree that the base certainly looks dull and lifeless, but from there on up, I gotta love it.. very unique and artistic.. it seems to truley express an idea and not a building.
