The 4/C tower, proposed by Crescent Heights Inspirational Living, is shrinking before its even been built.
Originally-proposed at 102-stories, 4/C was going to tower over Seattle's skyline from it's Downtown perch, far above the 76-story Columbia Center. At that height it would have been the 9th-tallest structure in the United States and the tallest West of the Rockies.
Those plans took a hit when the FAA sent a "notice of presumed hazard" stating that the 1,117-foot building would be too tall and that something in the range of 965 feet would be more favorable. Revised plans and renderings have been released and while the eventual height may be lessened, it still hopes to be the tallest tower on the West Coast.
This latest round calls for a 90- to 100-story tower wth anywhere from 890 to 1,020 residences, 55,000 to 85,000 sq. ft. of office/coworking space, 80 to 100 hotel rooms, and 30,000 to 45,000 sq. ft. of retail and lobby space. 12 levels of parking will be in above- and below-ground garages.
1,029 feet remains the developer's preferrred building height but they've also included a 959-foot option, which would actually come in just under the Columbia Center (967).
Crescent Heights and LMN Architects will now take those plans before the design review board on March 1 for guidance. We should be able to find out more about the direction, and more importantly the height, from there.
