New Look at Potential 60-Story Tower at 888 Second Avenue

Big news today on the development front, and we mean that literally. Via The Seattle Times, Urban Visions is still moving forward with plans for an 880-foot-tall tower located at 888 Second Avenue (naturally). If built, that would be the second-tallest building Seattle behind Columbia Center (937 feet) and the fifth-tallest building on the West Coast. Originally the project was envisioned as Seattle's tallest at 77 stories but Urban Visions CEO Greg Smith later admitted that was "speculative." As-is, the 60-story skyscraper will include roughly 1M square feet of office space, 160 luxury residences and retail. The Metropolitan Grill will remain as the ground-level anchor tenant. Renderings show that plans still remain for a central atrium running the entire block at street-level which will allow pedestrians to walk underneath the tower and look up 44 stories.
