The area around Pike Place Market just keeps getting taller and taller. Earlier this week we heard that plans for a hotel/apartment tower at at 1st & Stewart was moving forward. Now comes word via DJC that Wood Partners have unveiled plans for a 400-foot residential tower at 1613 Second Ave. The proposal includes two options, one of which would have the tower cantilever over the Broadacres Building next door at 1601 Second Ave. The structure currently on the lot, the Ames/MJA Building, has been nominated for city landmark status. The outcome of that decision will determine if it ends up getting demolished or becomes part of future plans.
