Developers Wright Runstand & Company released drawings yesterday of a new building that will be built in Rainier Square in Seattle, Washington. The 58-story tower will include residential, office, restaurant, and retail space.  The developers hope to break ground later next year and complete the tower by 2017. Once completed, the tower will become Seattle’s second tallest skyscraper.

The land the developers have settled on to build the skyscraper is currently owned by the University of Washington and is currently occupied by a shopping mall.  The University of Washington picked Wright Runstand & Company to redevelop the plot of land as well as manage Rainier Tower. The developers plan for the 850-foot tower includes a 12-story hotel, 790,000 square feet of office space, 180 apartments, and 30,000 square feet of retail. If all goes to plan, Wright Runstand & Company plan to open the building in phases starting in late 2017.
