Another one falls by the wayside

Saw this excerpt about the Candela Hotel & Residences project in the Seattle Time’s article on a new downtown apartment tower:

Urban Visions’ 35-story tower at Second Avenue and Pike Street, has been redesigned as an apartment project, in part to increase the likelihood of obtaining financing. Urban Visions’ original plan was for a luxury hotel and condos

Apparently, I’m a little behind the times…UrbanVisions switched the use from condo/hotel to apartments back in December 2009 as announced on their blog.

That’s four, once prominent, condo/hotel developments left as a footnote in history (AVA, 1 Hotel, Heron/Pagoda, Candela).

Though not a condo/hotel, me thinks the Insignia Tower project is pretty much a goner as well. A few weeks ago all of the Insignia signage had been painted over and now part of the lot has been opened up as a parking lot. They’ve not responded to any of my inquiries either.
