Developer R.C. Hedreen is scaling back plans for the Greyhound block in downtown Seattle by eliminating an office tower and shrinking the residential component.
The company said it plans a 43-story building with more than 1,500 hotel rooms, 150 units of affordable housing and a six-level podium that holds banquet and meeting space as well as 30,000 to 40,000 square feet of retail.
Hedreen had previously outlined plans for a second tower with 350,000 square feet of office space. That version called for 600 apartments but only 1,200 hotel rooms.
The company said the project, on a full block bounded by 8th and 9th Avenues, and Howell and Stewart Streets, will be the largest convention hotel north of San Francisco when completed in early 2017.
