Architecture A Foster for Seattle
posted by April 11 at 11:57 AMon
Look closely at this skyline of the future and you find a tower designed by none other than Norman Robert Foster:
Yes, Seattle is on the way to possessing what must be Foster’s only tower on the West Coast. The local company heading the project is Triad Development, and the location of the tower will be across the street from the west face of the horrible City Hall—between third and fourth. Shooting for a gold LEED rating, the tower, 520 feet high, will be one with the underground, the light rail station—apparently one of the main reasons Foster took an interest in the project. Also in the works is the production of a public space that could be what Westlake Center never became, a civic core. I’ll write more about this project in next week’s paper.
