Developers Wright Runstand & Company released drawings yesterday of a new building that will be built in Rainier Square in Seattle, Washington. The 58-story tower will include residential, office, restaurant, and retail space. The developers hope to break ground later next year and complete the tower by 2017. Once completed, the tower will become Seattle’s second tallest skyscraper.
Washington's Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is making use of the best technology available to collect, analyze, and publicly distribute detailed information about the state's geology, through a new lidar database with special focus on landslides hazard.
Areas burnt from wildfires, in north central Washington, are now buried under rocks, mud and water as a result of the heavy rain which fell in the area the last days. There were no reports of injuries however communications through radio and phone are difficult as communication towers were damaged by the fires a few months back.
