I like the base, but the towers are hyper-dull.

I like the design, but the base is too tall and blocky. It's like that one development in San Francisco. I'd like to see the height of the base cut in half, and the extra square footage added to taller towers.

....

they're suppose to be exactly 400' i don't think the design is bad, if they use a good colore of glass it'll look ok. i can't stand how some people think every building should be like the ones they build in vancouver. while i prefer the density of vancouver, i prefer the various colors that make up seattle. i just wish we had the density of vbc and kept the height and veriety that we have

Of course, diddnt you read that its a Vancouver based developer... they dont know how to do it any other way. Seriously though, good news for Seattle, you guys seem to be picking up steam in the condo development department.

Is that the Max height for the Regrade? The reason I ask is because that podium is huge. Would be nice to see a few more floors and smaller podium. Just my opinion.

Love the podium. Need the street wall and general mass.

Belltown has a lot of 85', 125', 240', and 400' zones, with the 400' zones requiring bonus payments to go over the original 240' zoning. Housing gets 10% more for mechanical and architecture, or something like that, so in a 400' zone housing will be 440'. Nearby we have 500' zones, including where Amazon is going, but I don't think they get the 10%.

Yes, we make them pay. In a quest to look like idiots, the thing we want is taxed at an extra $19/sf above the original height, if I recall.

One other 440' apartment is supposed to start this month. Otherwise we have a handful of 240's underway.

I lived in Seattle in the 80's 'till '91 and the Nimby groups really pushed the city to enact these height limits in and around DT. Some folks actually thought it was Martin Seilg, Wright Rundstad, ect., finance these groups secretively, so that knowbody would build taller than theirs! Which, I always thought was a stretch. Anyway, nice proposal Seattle!

The limits are higher in some places.

You're referring to the CAP initiative. It was a reaction to the wave of towers proposed and underway at the time, and to the recently-built Columbia Center. But I'd say the angst was just as much about Downtown's overall construction mess, which was largely about building the Bus Tunnel, as well as the convention center over the freeway. Thankfully CAP's square footage per year requirements are long gone (never mattered...we overbuilt), and even before the latest round the height limits were relaxed somewhat.
