Seattle's Biggest Hotel Will Now Replace Greyhound Terminal

New, 1 comment

As you know, the Greyhound Terminal that has shuffled folks in and out of Seattle for 85 years is moving to SoDo to make room for what was supposed to be a dual tower project consisting of an office tower and hotel. Thursday, developer Hedreen announced they're dropping the 500-foo office tower from plans due to apparent challenges that could arise with city planners.

They are still, however, moving forward with "Ninth & Stewart," a 43-story tower that will become Seattle's biggest hotel and second biggest meeting & event location.

The first six floors will be a podium that contains the lobby, affordable housing for workers, banquet space and meeting rooms. Above that, a 37-floor tower will contain 1,500 guest rooms and suites.

Demolition of the Greyhound terminal will commence in March 2014 and the projected $400-$500M construction is expected to be completed in early 2017.
