Olive 8 is a 39-story, 140 m (460 ft), mixed-use skyscraper in Seattle, Washington, United States. The building's lower 17 floors comprise a 346-room Hyatt hotel, and the upper 22 floors have 229 condominiums. It is located in Downtown Seattle at the intersection of Olive Way and 8th Avenue. The Hyatt hotel opened on January 30, 2009,[4] and the condominiums opened later in the year.[5]

The tower has one of the largest green roofs in downtown Seattle, 8,355 sq ft (776.2 m2), and was developed by the R.C. Hedreen Company and designed by Gluckman Tang Architects, the architects for The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the Dia Center for the Arts in New York City. JTM Construction of Seattle managed the construction of the building.

The complex was designed in an effort to reach LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Certification with its energy-efficient glass facade, low-flow plumbing fixtures, dual-flush toilets, partial green roof, and efficient condensing boiler.[6]
