DOWNTOWN -- Originally, plans for the Rainier Square redevelopment called for a 50-story tower. Forget that. New plans call for a 58-story tower consisting of 790K sq. ft. of office space, approximately 180 apartment, a 150-room hotel and 30K sq. ft. of restaurant and retail space at the base. If completed, as planned by 2019, it would be the second-tallest building in Seattle.
