SEATTLE | The Wave | 240 FT | 25 FLOORS

Edgy Stadium Place tower scores with Pioneer Square board
The city board charged with safeguarding the character of historic Pioneer Square on Wednesday unanimously approved
the decidedly untraditional design of a proposed 25-story apartment tower just north of CenturyLink Field.









By Eric Pryne
May 16,2012

Quote:
The glass-and-steel tower would be divided into stacked, two-to-four-story "boxes" positioned at different angles, with some overhanging or pulling back from others. The building is part of a bigger development called Stadium Place, in what used to be CenturyLink Field's north parking lot.

...most members of the Pioneer Square Preservation Board had nothing but praise for the project Wednesday. "This is a fabulous segue between the old and the new in Pioneer Square," Mark Astor said. Sara-Jane Bellanca, who lives in a condo across Occidental Avenue South from the Stadium Place site, was the only member of the public to speak — and she, too, was complimentary. "I think it's absolutely spectacular," she said.

The tower, designed by ZGF Architects, would be a prominent part of the view north from CenturyLink Field toward the downtown skyline, a panorama featured regularly during TV broadcasts of Seahawks games. At 240 feet, the 333-apartment South Tower would be a little shorter than the stadium, about 500 feet away.

Already under construction are a more-traditional, 10-story West Tower of loft-style apartments, and a full-block base, or podium, for both towers with more apartments, space for shops and restaurants, and a parking garage.

A 20-story condo tower is planned later, as are an office tower and hotel on the other side of Second Avenue South. Alan Cornell of Daniels Real Estate said the podium and West Tower should be completed in summer 2013, the South Tower a year later. All the South Tower needs now is building permits, he said.

This is a fairly big deal for Pioneer Square. It's a neighborhood defined by stadium events, homeless, bars, and rug shops. It's still an arts community though that's diminished. Lately it's become a major diversified tech haven. But it's had relatively few plain ol' residents who aren't destitute. The 500 (eventually 750) housing units won't turn it into a beehive, but it'll be a little bit of glue to hold things together, attract some everyday retail, etc. Further, as shown in the diagram, Downtown's largest parking lot will be half as big, kept unfortunately by the stadium to use for events, staging, parking, etc.

PS, although the base structure is under construction, the 25-story one can't be called under construction because it doesn't have a building permit. But when it does, it'll join a small flurry of highrises of similar height. Apartments of 24, 24, 24, and 24 stories are underway on the northern fringe of Downtown. Nothing taller yet, though the 40-story 815 Pine apartments are supposed to break ground next month, and the 40-story Insignia Phase 1 condo was rumored in the paper in March to be planning a May start. A 30-story apartment was also talking about a May start but appears to be a few months off as they just got a conditional land use permit.

The current flurry is about 3,700 units under construction in a 2,000-acre version of Downtown Seattle, plus about 600 units recently completed. That's certainly in boom territory by our standards, and appears to be continuing at a good clip with a lot more starts planned for this year, not to mention an ongoing flurry working through entitlements for next year.

Correction, I heard about one more start (counting demo here) and also remembered a few more...it's over 4,000 underway in that 2,000-acre area.

Actually, this one can be moved to the under construction section as Phase 1 is already underway.

The Phase I podium and 10-story apartment are underway. The south tower (on the podium) will start when it gets a building permit. The north tower (same podium) is a ways off.
