High Rise Reflected in Municipal Tower Lobby Window

This very distinctive building with it's windowed curved roof is the fourth tallest in the city and is visible in most photos of Seattle's skyline. Here is a street level view of the lobby windows reflecting another downtown building. The Seattle Municipal Tower has a freeway on ramp to the I-5 express lanes running right through it, just to the right of where I was standing for this shot. The red key insignia is the logo for Key Bank. The building was called Key Bank Tower prior to 2004. The lobby is quite impressive with these several story high windows, and (what else!) there is a Starbucks tucked just inside the front doors. There are 5 floors below ground level, and 57 above. The facilities include a flower shop, several eateries and a fitness club, complete with 5 lane lap pool.

Once again - a whole series of wonderful photos! I am SO SAD over the "condoization" of buildings like the one being torn down in upper Queen Anne - it's all starting to look so generic and boring. That building is so beautiful...
