When completed around 2017, Ninth & Stewart will be the tallest hotel in Seattle. The 43-story hotel will contain 1,680 rooms (!!!) as well as affordable housing for workers, tons of banquet space, meeting rooms and over 700 parking spaces. As part of the design review process, R.C. Hedreen and LMN Architects have released some new renderings and plans that fill in the details on this mega-project.
The scope includes 6 levels below grade for parking, loading docks, mechanical and support spaces; an extra tall ground level with lobbies, restaurants, and a parcel park; a 5 story podium with meeting and ballroom spaces; a hotel tower on the southern portions above the podium and a 9 story affordable housing component above the podium on the northern portion. The latest designs & plans go before the Design Review Board on Oct. 1.
