Candela Hotel & Residences was a planned 410-foot (120 m) tall skyscraper in Seattle, Washington. Located near the historic Pike Place Market at the intersection of 2nd Avenue and Pike Street, it was to have had 36 floors and a design with a smaller midsection than the top and the bottom. After the bursting of the United States housing bubble, the building plans for the hotel were dropped in favor of apartments.[1] The revised project was referred to as the Second & Pike Tower[2] and then West Edge Tower in 2012.[3][4]


Candela Hotels was founded in 2005 by Tom Pigott, President and CEO. The project at 2nd and Pike was announced in 2007 to include a luxury Candela Hotel and condominiums.[1]
