Kinects is a residential skyscraper in the Denny Triangle neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The 440-foot-tall (130 m), 40-story tower has 357 apartments and a 3,500-square-foot (330 m2) restaurant at its base.[2][3][4] It was completed in July 2017, after two years of construction.[5] The building is located along Minor Avenue between Stewart and Howell streets, on the same block as the under construction AMLI Arc and Tilt 49 complex.

The building is wedge-shaped, with the upper floors flaring out on three sides by 6 inches (150 mm) per floor. It features a rooftop swimming pool and other amenities, including a 20-foot (6.1 m) hemlock tree.[6][7]

The tower was originally approved for construction in 2008 and was to break ground the following year,[8] but was put on hold during the Great Recession. Developer Security Properties revived the project in 2014 and began construction in February 2015.[9][10] It was completed in July 2017.
