While the exact height has yet to be determined, it appears Seattle will soon be joining that elite group of cities that are home to 100-story plus skyscrapers. A 101 story, 1.2 million square foot tower is proposed at the intersection of Fourth Avenue and Columbia Street in downtown and not far from the city’s current tallest – the 943 foot, 76 story Columbia Center. No design images of the proposed building yet, but it is likely to become the tallest building on the West Coast of the United States and if designed properly, should be an exciting addition to one of the most impressive skylines in the nation (see photo above).

Stay tuned for updates!
