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.
