Is Seattle getting another condo tower?

Do you guys remember the Seattle condo building AVA (8th and Pine) that was highly marketed prior to the great recession? Back in 2008, there were plans for a condo/hotel that would soar above the neighboring towers in the Retail District of Downtown Seattle.
 
From what we gather, the developer (Fana Group) has re-invented the plans to deliver a 48 story hotel/residential tower featuring 395 units, 178 hotel rooms and nearly 8,000sf of retail. This is is exciting news but also will have an impact on multiple buildings in the surrounding neighborhood – including Olive 8 condos.
 
The building will sit at 8th and Pine in the retail district. Just 1 block from Pacific Place and steps away from the new Washington State Convention Center addition. The early design guidance for the Downtown Design Review Board is set for November 1st.
 
The architect for the new tower is Weber Thompson. Early highlights of the project include:
 
  • Residential amenity space on the top floor
  • Beautifully designed rooftop terrace
  • Ground level retail with overhead protection for the weather
  • Two lobbies – one for the hotel and one for the residences
 
Stay tuned to the blog for more details.
