Olive8 Seattle - Glass Details

The new Olive8 Condominiums are nearly complete, bringing an interesting building to the Seattle skyline. Though there are some serious faults with this development, such as it's weird proximity to a neighboring building and a height complex, the architecture certainly brings in some a fresh design elements to the area. Good or bad, time will tell, though I give it a thumbs up for being different, and spending some money on that conquest.

This view will one day be blocked by a massive building planned for the parking lot in the foreground. The Ava is yet to be started, you can read about it here on the Seattle Condo Blog. There's also another tall condo building planned just to the South across from the Paramount Theater. For some interesting reader comments about the Olive8 development on another blog, hugeasscity, check out their post here.
