Icon TowerIcon Tower, originally set to be a 224 unit 30 story condo building, might be resurrected. The project was planned for a triangle lot on 600 Wall St between Wall St, Denny Way and 6th Ave. This condo tower development, among many others, was put on hold when the recession hit.

According to a recent article in the Puget Sound Business Journal, the Developer now plans to build a 38 story building with 310 units. However, what isn’t known is if this tower will be an apartment or condo building. Also of note, since the lot is small a typical parking garage will not be possible as there is no room for ramps so a mechanical parking system will be used. It will be much like a car elevator according to the description in the PSBJ.  (Photo of original design from 2007) 

It will be interesting to see how many, if any, of these resuscitated buildings will be sold as condos.  We will keep you posted as we hear more.
