Even an icon like Seattle’s tallest high-rise, Columbia Center, can up its game to stand out. The owners of the 76-story tower have installed an LED light display with the inaugural one saluting the Seahawks.
Seattle’s tallest building is about to become the city’s newest night time attraction, thanks to a dazzling new LED light display firing up just in time to commemorate the Seahawks run to a second straight NFC Championship.
The Sky View Cafe opened last week on the 73rd floor of the Columbia Center, part of the building’s Sky View Observatory. The menu was developed by Ravishing Radish Catering and includes items like baguette sandwiches, pastries and tarts from Le Fournil, Washington beers and ciders, wines and sparkling wines, and coffee from Seattle’s Middle Fork Roasters.
At 788 feet of vertical elevation, the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle stands as the second tallest building west of the Mississippi. It takes 69 flights of stairs, or 1,311 steps, to reach the highly acclaimed observation deck with breathtaking views of the entire Puget Sound region. The Big Climb supports the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, raising money through sponsorships, individual and team fundraising, and entry fees. In 2014, the event sold out in 13 hours and raised a record breaking $2.42 million for blood cancer research and patient services.
The 76-story tower, in turnaround mode for the past few years, has landed several tech firms and filled much of its vacant space, spurring speculation that a sale could be on the horizon.
The highly regarded Condé Nast Traveler recently names Seattle’s Sky View Observatory as one of the Top 11 public viewing platforms in the world. offering 360 degree views from the top of soaring skyscrapers, Columbia Center’s observatory was listed in-group with the Shanghai World Financial Center, the Empire State Building in New York and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
The Sky View Observatory on the 73rd floor of Seattle’s Columbia Center is getting a makeover this summer. Starting July 1, visitors to the observatory, touted as the tallest public viewing area west of the Mississippi, will be presented with a 360-degree view of the surrounding landscape.
