The Greyhound Terminal that has shuffled folks in and out of Seattle for 86 years has moved to SoDo to make room for what was supposed to be a dual tower project consisting of an office tower and hotel. Developers Hedgreen, though, announced they’re dropping the controversial 500-foot office towers from their plans due to apparent challenges that could arise with city planners.

 

They are still, however, moving forward with “Ninth & Stewart,” a 43-story tower that will become Seattle’s biggest hotel and second biggest meeting & event location. The first six floors will be a podium that contains the lobby, affordable housing for workers, banquet space and meeting rooms. Above that, a 37-floor tower will contain 1,500 guest rooms and suites.

 

Demolition of the old ‘Dirty Dog’ terminal (shown above), with its superb late 1970s neon signage, will start in early March and is expected to be gone before the month ends, and the projected $400-$500M construction scheduled for completion by early 2017.
