The new condominium tower, that we mentioned in a blog post in August, that will be constructed in Downtown Seattle where the Chromer building now stands at 1516 2nd Avenue has released its preliminary design.
Architect Julia Nagele of Hewitt Seattle is designing the building and has described her sketch of the building design as “a mom holding the hand of a child”. There will be a 484 foot tall building, or the “mama” tower and a “baby” tower that will be a third as tall. Having two towers will allow for light and air to stream through the towers and create a transition between the shorter buildings on the block and the skyscraper.
This project will contain 540 condo units (previously stated as 498 units) ranging in size and price to appeal to the most amount of potential buyers. There will only be 310 parking spaces.
Construction is set to begin in a year and a half.
