Rebranded Seattle Tower Eyes 2019 Completion
A 41-story, mixed-use tower taking shape in downtown Seattle (ELEVATOR WORLD, July 2015) has been rebranded Arrivé and is scheduled for delivery in early 2019, Commercial Property ExecutiveTM reported. Formerly called Potala, the structure is being developed by Molasky Group and Binjiang Tower Corp. and will have ground-level retail, a hotel, apartments and below-grade parking. It is located at 2116 Fourth Avenue and was designed by Seattle firm Weber Thompson. Describing Arrivé as one of the first for-rent properties in Seattle, Mike Doran, vice president of development and construction at Molasky Group, said the tower is positioned to take advantage of the reemergence of the Belltown neighborhood.
