The history of skyscrapers in Seattle, Washington began with the 1904 completion of the Alaska Building, which is often regarded as the first steel-framed skyscraper in the city;[1] it rises 14 floors and 203 feet (62 m) in height.[2] In 1914, the Smith Tower was completed; at the time of its construction, the Smith Tower was the tallest building in the United States outside New York.

From the late 1920s to 1950s, the city's construction was halted due to the Great Depression which severely damaged the city's economy. Smith Tower stood as the tallest structure in Seattle until 1962 when the Space Needle became the tallest tower in the city. Seattle went through a large construction boom in the 1970s and 1980s, resulting in the construction of 15 buildings of at least 400 feet (122 m) in height, including Columbia Center. Seattle entered into another high-rise construction boom in 2000, and has since seen the completion of three buildings that stand at least 500 feet (152 m). Today, Seattle boasts 14 completed skyscrapers[A] that rise at least 500 feet (152 m) in height. In terms of the number of skyscrapers, Seattle's skyline is ranked first in the Northwestern United States, third on the West Coast (after Los Angeles and San Francisco) and eleventh in the United States.[B]

The tallest building in Seattle is the 76-story Columbia Center, which rises 943 feet (287 m) and was completed in 1985.[3][4] It is currently the 20th-tallest building in the United States, and the tallest building in the state of Washington. The second-tallest skyscraper in the city and the state is 1201 Third Avenue, which rises 772 feet (235 m).[5] The twenty tallest buildings in Washington are located in Seattle.[6]

As of October 2015, there are 204 completed high-rises in the city, and 63 high-rise buildings are under construction, approved for construction, or proposed for construction,[7] including 40 buildings over 400 feet (122 m).

Tallest buildings[edit]

This list ranks Seattle skyscrapers that stand at least 400 feet (122 m) tall, based on standard height measurement. This includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts. The "Year" column indicates the year in which a building was completed. Freestanding observation towers, while not habitable buildings, are included for comparison purposes; however, they are not ranked.

Timeline of tallest buildings[edit]

This lists buildings that once held the title of tallest building in Seattle. The Space Needle is not a building, and is thus not included in this list; the 605-foot (184 m) tower[20] was the tallest structure in the city from 1961 to 1969. Likewise the Old King County Courthouse stood as the tallest structure from 1890 to 1904.

Notes[edit]

A. ^ This excludes the Space Needle, as it is not a fully habitable building.
B. ^ New York has 216 existing and under construction buildings over 500 feet (152 m), Chicago has 107, Miami has 37, Houston has 31, Los Angeles has 22, Dallas has 19, Atlanta has 19, San Francisco has 19, Seattle has 18, Las Vegas has 17, Boston has 16, Philadelphia has 15 and Minneapolis has 11. Source of skyline ranking information: SkyscraperPage.com: New York, Chicago, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, San Francisco, Seattle, Boston
C. ^ The Space Needle is not a habitable building, but is included in this list for comparative purposes. Per a ruling by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, freestanding observation towers are not considered to be buildings, as they are not fully habitable structures.
D. ^ The height of the Pioneer Building was reduced to 92 feet (28 m) after the 1949 Olympia earthquake.
