Ninth & Stewart is a proposed skyscraper project in the Denny Triangle neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The most recent plan (as of April 2013) is to build a 43-story tower to open in 2017, which would include a hotel, meeting space, and apartments. If constructed, it would be among the tallest skyscrapers in Seattle and the city's largest hotel.

History[edit]

The original proposal that was revealed in 2008 was cancelled due to the Great Recession.[4][5] That plan called for a 51-story, 500-foot (150 m) hotel that was to be constructed from 2011 to 2013. The hotel would have included 100,000 square feet (9,300 m2) of convention space, meeting rooms, two ballrooms, a restaurant, parking for 1,100 cars, and 1,200 rooms. The site, a three-quarter-block, L-shaped parcel that R. C. Hedreen Co. bought in 1995 for $4.5 million, included a Greyhound Lines bus station that would have been demolished for the hotel.[6]

After cancelling the earlier hotel project, R.C. Hedreen purchased the remaining land on the block in 2012. The developer has discussed putting a hotel and possibly an office building on the site.[7][8] The developer then had a plan to build two 500-foot (150 m) towers with a hotel, apartments, and office space.[9][10][5] The plan was altered in March 2013, most notably to remove the offices and second tower, to simplify the approval process.[3] The 43 story building features a 1,550 room hotel (which would be the largest in Seattle), 150,000 square feet (14,000 m2) of meeting space, 150 apartments, and 45,000 square feet (4,200 m2) of retail space.[11]

Greyhound will relocate the bus terminal to the SoDo neighborhood.[12]
