Community and Collaboration at the Center

At Columbia Center, we’ve updated our communal spaces for life at human scale. The three-level atrium at the base of Columbia Center houses more than a dozen retailers offering everything from dining to auto-detailing, with quiet nooks for one or spaces that can fit the whole office. Our new Workout by EXOS gives members a high-end fitness experience, and our 40th-floor Sky Lobby features a state-of-the-art conference center with incredible views. The top floors of the building feature the newly redesigned and expanded Sky View Observatory offering 360 degree views of the region, and the private Columbia Tower Club offers a full service, savvy business club environment.

Augmenting Columbia Center’s iconic presence as the tallest building in Seattle, the lighting scheme on the top of the building artfully changes the city skyline to recognize holidays and noteworthy occasions. It  allows for nightly color changes depending on the date, and also features animations tied to events like a Mariners’ home run, a Seahawks touchdown, or even the changing of the hour.
