Don't know much about the area so I trust the local forumers that this is a big deal. Architecturally it's kind of blah but in this economic climate a 500ft tower is a good sign.

Federal Way skyscraper project deal collapses
Post by Steve Maynard / The News Tribune on Feb. 2, 2011 at 11:07 am

Plans to develop a three skyscraper project on city-owned land in downtown Federal Way appear to be dead.

Developers failed to make a $100,000 payment to an escrow account by Monday. The payment was required to purchase the property by March 31.

Twin Development partner Luke Hwang of Federal Way said an investor fell through at the last minute and Twin couldn’t make the $100,000 payment.
