The development has been planned on the west side of Fourth Avenue between Columbia and Cherry streets.

Intended as a residential development, the tower will hold 1,200 residential units along with 167,150ft² of office and retail space, and 150 hotel rooms.

Plans for the tower include a 750-vehicle underground parking garage and 150 hotel rooms, reported Puget Sound Business Journal.

Residential and commercial spaces in the development will be spread across a 1.2 million ft² area.

Crescent Heights' previous proposals covered 840 residential units with 190,000ft² of commercial space, which would be mainly allocated for offices.

The developer has appointed Seattle architecture firm LMN for the tower.

Crescent Heights has already paid $48.75 for the project where construction is expected to start in 2017.

The original property owner, the Costacos Family, has signed an agreement with Crescent Heights to sell the half block to a partnership affiliated with Crescent Heights.
